I’ll never forget arriving at my grandma’s house on Thanksgiving. Even before we got out of the car, I could already imagine the fragrant smells that would be coming from her kitchen. My grandma was one of the best cooks ever and my mouth still waters every time I think of the food she made. I’d go running up the front steps to the porch, not even pausing for a quick ride on her porch swing like I’d usually do. Running into the house, my grandma and my parents would all yell out in unison, “Don’t let the screen door slam”, but of course, I’d let the screen door slam each and every time.
The only problem with this whole scenario? The seemingly endless wait until dinner was actually served. I think it was really only about half an hour but it felt like forever. I’m pretty sure no one appreciated my continuous chorus of “Is it ready yet?” over and over again. Sound familiar? I’ve got a solution. Put together a selection of free Thanksgiving printables, add some crayons or markers, and you’ve bought yourself some time to get dinner finished and on the table!
