Thanksgiving Dinner Cooking Planner

I don’t know about you but Thanksgiving Day is always filled with chaos. Fun chaos. But chaos nonetheless. With the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade playing in the background, I take to the kitchen prepared to tackle the day’s feast.

I carefully lay out all the ingredients for the delicious dishes (grouping them by recipe, of course) and then take a deep breath.

How am I going to get this all done? Efficiently would be nice.

Inevitably, my kitchen is covered in post-it notes reminding me when to put a dish in and when, oh, and at the right temperature. And wait… did those go in together? Or did I want to cook them separately? Shoot.

To wrangle all the chaos, I’ve created a simple printable chart. Click the links below to download.

The chart includes all the basic information you need to cook your dishes:

  • Cook Temperature (so you can batch dishes together)
  • Cook Time
  • Time In
  • Time Out

Also, I have this handy-dandy multi-timer from Amazon so I can set time simultaneously for each dish. You can get one here.

While you’re at it, you may want to download the matching Thanksgiving Menu Planner and Menu Board. Then you’ll be all set for the holiday! Gobble gobble!

Happy Feasting!
