Thanksgiving is a splendid vacation , no doubt, but if you’re hosting it’s a ton of undertaking. Between the appetizers, sides, turkey and pies, there is hardly any time to enjoy the friends and family who are spending this day with you. It’s kind of a waste. Thanksgiving might be an important day, and the banquet is a noble feast, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t cut corners.
This Thanksgiving you can, and should, take it easy on yourself with a few( or more) simple-minded, 15 -minute recipes. Just because you can make a carrot souffl doesn’t mean you should. We have appetizers, soups and vegetable line-ups that can all be made in such matters of times — so you can kick back and enjoy your loved ones on the working day of thanks … at least a little.
