Make Ahead Holiday Meals - planner/resource center

Do you dread hosting the holidays? Even if it's just your own nuclear family?!?!  Does the thought of serving up at least seven special dishes AT THE SAME TIME start beads of sweat forming on your forehead?  

Imagine NOT spending hours cooking on Thanksgiving.  Imagine an Easter free of stress. Imagine a Christmas spent sitting down with your family members and TALKING to them.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to serve up a homemade Holiday meal with minimal stress by pre-cooking, preparing and/or freezing some or even most of your holiday dishes so that you can actually ENJOY Thanksgiving (or Christmas or Hanukkah or Easter) this year.  Let the Productive Mama help you countdown to an enjoyable holiday feast.
