Fall is in the air, and that means that there are many great things to look forward to. The weather cools down, the leaves begin to change colors, and some of the best holidays of the year are right around the corner. Although planning parties for the holidays can be stressful, it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few tips for cooking the perfect Thanksgiving feast. If you happened to miss cooking up something fantastic this year and want to prepare for what lies ahead, still make sure to tune in!
Make a Plan
While it may sound simple, many people simply don’t have a detailed plan for how their day is going to go. Talk to everyone who is coming, and know exactly what each person is going to bring to the dinner. Assign jobs to anyone who is helping you, and make a timeline for how the day is going to play out.
With that said, things won’t go exactly as you plan. As long as you accept that going into the day, it won’t cause as much stress. Be flexible, and don’t let the small things stress you out and ruin your day.
Prepare in Advance
Prepare as much of the dinner and decorations before the actual day as possible. There’s nothing worse than running around at the last minute trying to get things ready as the guests arrive.
Follow these simple tips and your Thanksgiving Day dinner will run much more smoothly moving forward.
As we move further into the fall months, it’s time to start thinking about cold weather car preparation. One often neglected aspect of this seasonal change is that people frequently don’t prepare their vehicles for the colder months. Here is how to prepare your car for the winter.
Clean and Wax
To protect your car against the inevitable salt barrage that comes with snow, clean your vehicle thoroughly. This means washing the entire exterior and undercarriage before finishing it with a wax job. This will help prevent the salt from eating away at your paint.
Fill With Supplies
While a majority of people make it through winter without an incident, it’s important to be prepared just in case. Put emergency supplies in an accessible part of your vehicle. This could be things like a warm blanket, food and snacks, emergency flares, an extra phone for emergency calls, and anything else you may be able to use in an emergency. This is often the difference between life and death in a winter accident.
There are special winter tires that many vehicle manufacturers recommend investing in. You may think your all-season tires will cut it but they don’t have the traction and reliability of a tire made for the icy winds of the season.
There are a lot of great things about the winter, but it’s important to be prepared for all scenarios. By following these two simple steps, you will avoid a lot of winter headaches.
