Last minute Thanksgiving ideas

With Thanksgiving mere days away, the procrastinators amongst us may be feeling a bit stressed out. Let us help with some of our favorite resources for last-minute decorating tips and Thanksgiving recipes:

How could we go wrong with a site called “quick and simple?” We particularly loved their “Basketful of Thanks” which serves as both decoration and conversation starter.

If you have kids, you can keep them busy on Thanksgiving Day by preparing place holders for your guests. It’s a little messy, but we’re sure they’ll love the Finger Stamp Place Cards.

Parenthacks is a web site dedicated to sharing “forehead-smacklingly smart tips that help simplify family life, save money and have fun.” It wasn’t until visiting their site that we realized that we could save time, and sleep in on Thanksgiving morning, if we cut up the turkey BEFORE roasting. Who knew?

Did you know the average American consumes between 5,000 to 6,000 calories on Thanksgiving? At the risk of being accused of taking all the fun (and fat) out of your Thanksgiving meal, we suggest checking out the recipes created by the Meal Makeover Moms. Their golden mashed party potatoes look delicious but only have 220 calories per serving.

And what would Thanksgiving be without pumpkin pie? But have you ever tried an “Impossible Pumpkin Pie” (without a crust)? It’s very easy to make and sure to impress your guests.
