    #5 absolutely rocked as I frequently comment about my TINY kitchen and adjoining spaces. The article gave a thorough breakdown from way beforehand through the entire process. The big key is organizing your actually cooking around turkey. So, the suggestions of making dishes ahead of time that can be re-warmed while the bird is resting were spot on. And I huge, HUGE help is to buy a fresh bird!! That frozen fiasco is ridiculous. I always enjoy these posts so very much, Jessica :)

    • Used York City says:

      So glad you found it helpful, Mike! I also learned a lot from that tip about prepping ahead too, and fully plan to use that for dinner parties going forward:-)

  • Max Arthur says:

    That’s why I’m starting my holiday shopping this early.

  • Tamara says:

    FaceTiming with pets! I always wonder if they get it because we had to leave my puppy for a long weekend for a wedding and I missed her terribly.
    The window displays in NYC. Magical. We’re thinking of taking my kids to NYC next weekend to show them the holiday magic.

    • Used York City says:

      Ohh how special! Take many, many pictures, it’s certain to be magical:-)

      And yes, I’ve tried skyping with my pooch before and I think he just gets really upset that he can hear mommy but not find her in the room;-) oh chihuahuas!
