  • Work out a menu. obviously, do the family favorites but experiment with new recipes.
  • Pick up some turkey wings on the way home from work, in preparation for making and freezing a big batch of turkey stock.
  • Start planning your table decorations.
  • Create one big master shopping list, dividing it into three sections: buy-now nonperishables (wine, canned pumpkin, and even a frozen turkey, if you opt for one); items for the one-week-ahead grocery run; and perishables to buy on November 23 or 24.
