3-Hour Thanksgiving

GUYS! today’s the day, today’s the day!

i’m SO excited because today’s the day i finally get to share with you the giant secret i’ve been plotting & planning & testing for months at this point: this year, we’re doing Thanksgiving dinner in 3 hours.

…no, you didn’t misread that. we are totally doing Thanksgiving dinner in 3 hours this year, start to finish, prep work to plating. & i’m so freaking excited about it.

it’s time to kiss Thanksgiving overwhelm goodbye 

when i was brainstorming plays well with butter’s holiday content for this year, i asked you guys about your biggest pain points with planning & hosting Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving dinner.

one response kept coming up, over & over & over again: overwhelm.

whether you’re planning Thanksgiving dinner for your family or Friendsgiving dinner for your chosen family, there are SO many factors to consider, like figuring out:

  • all the recipes you want to make (…but will they even turn out?!).
  • how much food you need (…you’re feeding HOW many people, again?!).
  • how to navigate the grocery store during the holiday rush (…& inevitably making a last-minute emergency run because you forgot something…).
  • how the heck to avoid totally drying out the turkey, let alone roasting it in the first place (…but wait, did you remember to defrost that on time!?!?).
  • how to carefully choreograph the rotation of dishes in & out of the oven (will everything still be warm when you serve it?!).

…& on top of all of those overwhelming mealtime logistics is the day-long cooking marathon.

oh, & the little fact that you’re hosting more people than you normally do for one of the most important holiday dinners of the year.

um, if that’s not overwhelming, i don’t know what is.

& you know what? i get it. GAWD, i so get it. i’ve totally been there. 

the first time i ever hosted friendsgiving was this close to being a disaster. i put so much pressure on myself to be the perfect host that i (foolishly) decided to not delegate anything (i bet you know how that went for me, ha!). while we were prepping, chris & i ended up getting into one of the biggest fights we’ve ever had. oh, & our kitchen nearly flooded after a little incident involving potato peels & the garbage disposal (whoops).

so when i say i get Thanksgiving overwhelm, i totally get it. & when i tell you it’s so super easy to avoid all of that overwhelm, i absolutely mean it.

& guess what?! i’ve already planned it all out for you. i’ve created the ultimate easy Thanksgiving resource for your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving dinners this year: plays well with butter’s 3-Hour Thanksgiving Guide.
