Do you need help with Thanksgiving Dinner?

It's almost here - Thanksgiving is just three days away.

Is your dinner all planned out...or do you still need some help with your feast? Maybe it's your first time to cook the big meal, and maybe it's your twentieth...Everyone can use a little help now & then.

Here are some things you might find useful:

Leanne Ely at Saving Dinner has an absolutely FANTASTIC Thanksgiving planner. It has everything anyone could ever need, Shopping Lists, Timelines, Recipes. Get it here (Just click on the Thanksgiving link under "Free Sample Menu and Planner" in the green box on the right hand side of the page). I used this last year and am using it again this year - makes things so much more peaceful when there's no scrambling to get everything done!
