One more weekend til Thanksgiving: Will you spend the next 48 hours enjoying a few moments of peace, or planning and prepping? We’re hoping to do a little of both. Check out our plans, and tell us yours:

Figure out what not to make for Thanksgiving dinner.

In a temporary bout of insanity, we thought it might be fun to experiment with JELL-O. How could we forget that could lead to a disgusting dessert — or worse, a revolting main course.

Stock up on vegetables.

We’ll need them for side dishes and our vegetarian entrees.

Learn our Thanksgiving nutritional facts.

If we don’t know how many calories are in a cup of mashed potatoes, how will we know when to cut ourselves off?

Avoid fast food.

Just because chain restaurants have something festive and Thanksgiving-themed on the menu, doesn’t mean we have to try it. Unless it’s salted caramel hot chocolate.

Decide whether or not we’ve got in it us to make our own dinner rolls.

If we do, we’re going to go with some gluten-free rolls. If not, Sarah Lee here we come.

Gear up for some uninterrupted time with relatives.

Hopefully we’ve got a room booked at a hotel — either for us or the in-laws.

Try out a recipe or two.

We might need a practice run for some new Thanksgiving recipes.

Head to a boutique.

We’ve got to get a Thanksgiving hostess gift for next week — might as well make it eco-friendly.

Hit up the video store.

We’re going to need some classic movies for some sanctuary next weekend.

Dust off the cocktail shaker.

Because we all know that if there’s one thing we’re going to need in a week from today, it’s a strong drink.
