THANKSGIVING MENU PLANNER
Planning your Thanksgiving Menu can feel like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be! You might have a collection of favorite dishes that you make every year or you might be hunting for some new ideas. This printable menu planner is the perfect place to get your Thanksgiving menu ideas down on paper so you can get more organized.
The key to having a Thanksgiving with less stress is a little bit of planning. I’ve found that if I get organized ahead of time, everything flows much more smoothly. Whether you’re planning a big family dinner, a Friendsgiving, or a smaller meal just for your immediate family, this Thanksgiving menu planner will be a huge help!
Once you have planned your entire menu, all you have to do is make a shopping list and you’ll be ready to head out to the store or place your grocery order!
This printable menu planner includes spaces for:
- Main Dishes
- Side Dishes
It also includes space to plan when you need to be prepping for each portion of the menu. If you need more advice on the timing of prep work, our printable Thanksgiving Checklist can help you! It also coordinates with this menu planner if you’re looking for the cute factor!
If you need ideas for your menu, here are some of my favorites:
- Pimento Cheese
- Cheese & Crackers
- Roasted turkey
- Cornbread dressing or Stovetop stuffing (yep, I love them both!)
- Mashed Potatoes
- Corn Casserole
- Green Bean Casserole
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Jellied Cranberry Sauce (yes, I like the can-shaped cranberry!)
- Pumpkin Pie
- Whipped Cream
I don’t need my Thanksgiving menu to be very fancy. Around our house, we definitely go more classic and focus on the comfort aspect.
No matter what kind of holiday meal you plan, being organized will make the prep work and the actual day go smoothly. That means you will be able to enjoy it more!
