It’s week two of holiday planning and I hope you’ve confirmed your guest list, menu, and venue. According to GFC’s Ultimate Thanksgiving and Holiday Planning guide, your total number of confirmed guests, list of food allergies, dietary requirements, and requests should inform where and what you’ll serve.

This article will focus on menu options, but you should decide now if you’re able to comfortably host your guests and look for an alternative location if you can’t. I’d suggest asking a relative with a bigger home to host the event, an Airbnb or a low-cost community room. However, if you have it in your budget — it might not be too late to host a holiday celebration at a local restaurant and let them do all the cooking & cleaning. It may not be comfy and cozy like hosting at home — but you’re spending time with friends and family. Eater has a list of places — some may offer a holiday-themed menu:

I started with a discussion about desserts and suggested you #BuyYourPies this season:

I’ve even offered and provided links to Wide Open Eats’ turkey and alternative protein or poultry plan options in my #APP article.
