This should be fun! Help me figure out my T-Day schedule (menu inside)

Ok, so I have a tentative plan, but it has never really been my forte. Either Everything is cold by sit down, or I'm way late.

But any way, the menu that I'll be cooking is:

A Brined Holiday Spice Roast Turkey (13 pound)

Bourbon Gravy (from drippings)

Garlic Mashed Potatoes (someone else is making, but will need to be warmed)

Jalepeno Cheddar Corn Souffle Casserole (50 min @ 325)

Brown Butter and Bacon Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Cranberry-Orange Sauce

Praline Sweet Potato Casserole (25 min @ 375)

Scratch-made Green Bean Casserole (15 min @ 475)

Cherry-Apple Stuffing (30 min @ 325)

The dessert (an Orange Spice Chocolate Tart) I will make the day before. The brining and veg prep will be done the day before as well. Our sit-down deadline is 6:00pm. I only have one oven, but I do have a small counter top convection toaster oven also.

Okay, so I think I have a decent timeline thought out, but I want to compare it to what you come up with. Obviously, only having one oven, not everything will be piping hot at the dinner table; that's part of where i need your help (which things need to be hot/will be fine warm/which things will stay warm the longest...etc).

Let me know what you think my timeline should look like.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
