It’s that time of year again. It’s time for family, friends, and slaving over a hot stove. Are you a newlywed or a new couple and are worried about preparing your first Thanksgiving dinner?  Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!  Cupid’s got you covered.

Check out these Thanksgiving date ideas!

First, you have to determine how many people you’ll be entertaining. Here’s a great piece of dating advice: Always be prepared! Obviously, the more people, the more work you will have to do.  But that doesn’t necessarily have to be true. Try checking out some recipes for large groups of people. These recipes will make it very easy to cook for a crowd. For a small, intimate crowd, try some unique appetizers that will fit perfectly on a small side table, like cheese fondue.

Unfortunately, not all recipes can be as easy as cheese fondue. Turkey definitely isn’t easy to do! The Meleagris gallopavo was first domesticated by the Aztecs around the year 1100 A.D, and, coincidentally, is extremely hard to cook. Try putting some Rosemary and Thyme under the breast skin, and be sure to check out a few other tips to ensure a delectable main course. And involve your new husband as much as possible.  Don’t do all the work yourself. At the very least, take him in as the turkey carver.

Too lazy to cook? Don’t worry. Many food stores sell ready-to-go Thanksgiving dishes. If you live in the Manhattan area, be sure to consider these marketplaces. Or, you can choose to see what your favorite celebrity couples made for Turkey Day last year! Get inspired!

After the meal, when all waistbands at the table are comfortably tight, be sure to have a dessert prepared. If you want to stay traditional, be sure to have the all-american pumpkin pie waiting in the oven. For those who don’t have a taste for pumpkin pie, try having an assortment of cookies, brownies, and ice cream on standby.
