Transcript for Tips on how to host a stress-free Thanksgiving
This morning, we are counting down to Thanksgiving which is so hard for me to believe is less than two weeks away. ABC's Becky Worley is in San Francisco with some tips on what you should do now to help your holiday be stress-free. Good morning, Becky. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. Planning, it may make all the difference in life. Certainly for the holidays, and the as you said Thanksgiving is barreling towards us 13 days away. What you need to do to prep now. Thanksgiving dinner is a lot of work. So plan now to avoid stress later. First up, decide what to make from scratch and what to buy premade. This is largely a matter of opinion. Me, I buy all my rolls and all the desserts. I can't be bothered to bake. But the rest I cook and that leads to grocery shopping. Star of the show, the Turkey. Order now, especially if you need it to be air chied or organic or whatever your thing is. Whole foods and some other chains let you order online. If you're going frozen buy now, why wait. And remember the size formula. The usda says buy a Turkey one pound per person but I say factor in leftovers and go up to 1.5 pounds. Next the cornerstone of my Thanksgiving prep. Make your stuffing in advance. Like this weekend. It's so labor intensive. I'm crying. Making it then freezing it saves my bucket every year. Cranberry sauce, appetizers and some pies can be made ahead and frozen too. Now, we're giving thanks for your newfound ability to delegate. Use online organizing tools. At signupgenius.com ask people to bring side dishes like pumpkin pie or green bean casserole. Yum. My stuffing is made. Mission accomplished. It's headed into the freezer and now I can move on to planning my Black Friday deal hunting. Is there a Turkey in the studio with you? Be careful. Wild Turkey. No, but this is the weirdest prop I've ever brought in.
