1. Do as much cooking and prep work as you can in the next two days so you can also enjoy Thanksgiving day. Stuffing, cranberries, pies, vegetable platters can all be made ahead. You can also chop vegetables for other side dishes the day before. If you don't need access to the table, set it in advance.
2. Buy a bunch or two of Italian parsley. It is only about .99 a bunch and can be used as a garnish, sprinkled over side dishes, etc. This is just a little touch that makes food look extra special.
3. Sweeten the whipped cream for your pies with ...brown sugar. Delicious!!!
