Make it Easier on Yourself
Thanksgiving Day menu templates are the blank tapestries that you will use to plan and coordinate that masterpiece of a feast that will amaze, delight, and ultimately put your guests to sleep. Templates make it easy to fill in what your guests can expect for each course from start to finish.
Building one from scratch with all the requisite design work and formatting is a time-consuming task. What’s more is the recipe templates, also provided below, that provide room for all the necessary ingredients, instructions, cooking times, and any other relevant details on a pre-made document on your computer suited for that purpose also make your life easier. It’s just a matter of typing in what you need to on the template for each planned dish (or if you’re old school, print it out first and then hand write the specifics).
The added benefit of a template is that you can find just about any menu or recipe you want online, copy and paste from any website right onto the template or Microsoft Notebook first, then the template. That way you can pick and choose the menu items to your exact specifications because we all have our preferences. For instance, lumpy mashed potatoes, no way Jose, smooth and creamy all the way!
Before we pinpoint where these templates are on the Web for use with common software applications, perhaps you might need other Thanksgiving-related resources as well. For DIY items to decorate the table with or adorn your walls or doorway, go to Thanksgiving Decorations. For some other great advice and suggestions, read Decorating Ideas for Thanksgiving . Between the two, you can provide a festive, autumnal environment and even get the kids to do it to stay out of your hair with all that cooking, and extra hard potato mashing that needs to be done.
