Preparing Thanksgiving dinner can take a lot of work, even more so for a person with arthritis. Preparing a whole Thanksgiving dinner can seem hopeless to some with arthritis, because it can be difficult to get everything done in time and still have time to rest your aching joints. So my tip this week is something we do in my own family to make it less stressful. Sit down and write out your menu, then assign one food item to each guest to bring. Such as, maybe have one guest bring a pumpkin pie and have another bring a green bean casserole. Or you can even talk to each of your guests and just let them tell you what they would like to bring. That way all you have to worry about is the turkey and the little things.
