End every meal on a high note with Hatfield.
The perfectly well-executed holiday meal was not built in a day. It takes planning. It takes a few trips to the store. It takes some follow-up calls to friends and family. We’ve created a countdown to help budget your time leading up to the big celebration.
UNDERSTAND YOUR AUDIENCE (ONE MONTH TO GO)
Daughter bringing her new vegetarian beau around the family for the first time? Cousin with a nut allergy? Picky little eaters coming to town? Get a good grasp of who will be pulling up a seat at your table so you can make sure they’ll all have something to put on their plates.
MAKE A MENU (THREE WEEKS TO GO)
Stand by those classic family favorites. Introduce some fresh new dishes. It’s your time to curate – and execute – the menu of your dreams. We have some simple-to-make dishes to round out your menu.
PREPARE YOUR COOKING SCHEDULE (ONE WEEK TO GO)
Think it out. Write it down. Post it somewhere handy. And if you’re really looking to go all out: Laminate or seal it in a plastic bag so it’s safe from potential spills! Know the prep, cook and cool-down times for all the goodness going in the oven.
PREPARE THESE ITEMS BEFORE THE BIG MEAL (2 DAYS TO GO)
Let those delicious smells start circulating in your house days before the big meal. Prep side dishes in advance so they just have to be heated before serving. Our Sausage Cornbread Stuffing is one you can easily make ahead!
PLAN FOR LEFTOVERS
The serving dishes are clean, dry and tucked away until the next holiday dinner. But what about those leftovers? You are not going to want to match up Tupperware containers and lids on the spot. Sort ahead for a simple storing process.
