  1. Start the cooking early! Prepare the recipes for your menu in advance and buy all of your ingredients one to two weeks beforehand. On the week of the big day, cook a couple of side dishes to either freeze or refrigerate so that on the day of, you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying the company of family.
  1. Fast track your cleaning! Do your cleaning early and take advantage of your generous closet and storage space. Simply store away loose papers and any other things you may have lying around.
  1. Keep your furry friends safe! Make sure your four-legged family member enjoys the delicious turkey but remember not to let them overindulge. This is a good reference to use for what foods to allow and what to avoid.
  1. Have some fun! Celebrate the holiday early in nearby Downtown Silver Spring. Delight the whole family by heading out to the Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade taking place in Silver Spring on November 19. The line-up starts at Ellsworth Drive and Fenton Street at 10 a.m. and includes performances, extravagant floats and more!
