This Grocery List is a compiled list for every recipe in this dinner menu. Always review all the recipes represented on the menu. Double-check the grocery list to the recipes and your pantry and mark off anything you do have or anything for a recipe you decide not to make.
The Grocery List is set up in a few different ways.
First, it is set up for you to see what you can buy weeks ahead of time while the stores are nice and stocked. And the other things that you will have to buy closer to the day you are having dinner.
Second, it is set up to easily reference how much you will need to make the entire meal. The amount you will need for every item is listed. However, remember to review the recipes for any dislikes, allergies, and make sure the menu suits your needs. Then go through the fridge and the pantry and mark off anything you already have, and you won’t need it.
Some items you will have extra of like garlic, herbs, and some baking items. Unfortunately, you can’t go to the store and ask for only 1 tablespoon baking soda.
Plan out your Holiday Menu Timeline
Creating a plan to when things will be cooked, prepared, and even what dish you will serve each dish will save you a countless amount of stress come the day of the big dinner.
Review your recipes and determine what you can prep ahead of time. Look in your fridge and map out how much space you will have to store all the prepped items.
Also review the recipes to see if you will need any extra kitchen equipment like a large roasting pan, crockpot or instant pot. If you do not have one of these items that may be required to reach out to the blogger and ask if there is an alternative cooking method.
