Someone crown model and imminent cookbook author Chrissy Teigen with the title of Queen of Thanksgiving already. She is basically to Thanksgiving what Santa is to Christmas, what Cupid is to Valentine’s Day, what the Easter Bunny is to Easter — you get the picture. Girlfriend is making over 10 different kinds of sides for her holiday feast, in addition to a mouthwatering-sounding ham + turkey. Needless to say, in order to pull of such a feat, you need a lot of prep.


Chrissy took to her Instagram last night to share her number one Thanksgiving tip: prepare as much as you can the day before. She posted this photo of herself showing off two sweet potato pie crusts that are sure to be some tasty desserts when the day is through along with the caption: “It begins! Officially up in the mountains, working on whatever I can get in before tomorrow! Sweet potato pie crusts o baby.”

Can we just say drool? We can’t wait to see what she whips up. And for those of you who are slaving away in the kitchen today (*raise hand*), take Chrissy’s advice next year (or for the holidays) and try to get whatever you can done the day before!

Happy Thanksgiving, all!
