Thanksgiving Timeline

One of the hardest parts of entertaining is timing everything. With some planning ahead, it can really take away the stress. This is my Thanksgiving timeline as a part of the Teacher. Foodie. Athlete. Does Thanksgiving series. I plan to serve my guests a nice hot feast starting at 5:00. You will need to adjust the game day timeframe if serving at a different time.
