The Ultimate Thanksgiving Timeline for Taking the Stress Out of Hosting


Anyone who's ever hosted Thanksgiving dinner knows it's best to approach the labor-intense holiday as a marathon rather than a sprint. If you're doing a lot of cooking yourself, half the battle may be figuring out how and when to begin. Of course, being well-prepared can help take a bit of the stress out of this notoriously hectic holiday.

To get you started, we've created a handy Thanksgiving cooking timeline to help you stay on track -- so you won't be running around Thanksgiving morning like a turkey with its head cut off. (Sorry, couldn't help it!)
