The holiday season is fast approaching. A time to spend being thankful for family, celebrating friends and welcoming in a brand new year.
As families expand, though, so does the table we all sit around and the work involved. My family has recently introduced a kids only table alongside the regular table as an attempt to cut down on the chaos. We’re still usually a bit cramped, though.
With limited space and all the work it takes to plan a great holiday, it’s important you go in prepared. Here are 3 tips for easy holiday prep:
Figure out exactly what you’re cooking and write a list of all ingredients needed. You could even construct a schedule for the day itself, what needs to be put in the oven and when, as well as all other festivities. That way, you’re not scrambling around in circles. If you come from a large family, also plan on where everyone will sit at the table.
Accept all the help you can
No one should have to do it all on their own. If someone offers to bring a dish, accept. If they don’t offer, ask if they can. The more everyone pitches in and brings a dish to the table, the more enjoyable the occasion will be for everyone.
Make sure your appliances work for you
Since holidays are a hectic time for everyone not only for buying gifts but also for cooking and entertaining in the days leading up to and including the holidays, make cooking easier with the latest appliance technology. This includes induction cooking that enables you to boil water in less than two minutes like the Frigidaire FGIF3061NF plus induction reduces clean up time because spills don’t burn on. This Frigidaire range also includes a convection oven which circulates the air in the oven for quicker baking time.
Another great innovation within cooking are double ovens that let you cook two dishes at two different temperatures at once like the Whirlpool WGG555S0BS but still fits within the space of a standard range. My mom would love this! All of this technology will allow you to get the food the way you want it prepared and saves you time so you can spend it with the ones you love.
