Keeping Organized for a Three-Day Chag

Whenever we have a three-day chag, I always prepare too much food and end up forgetting to set some of the items out. I did the same thing this year for RH. Do you have tips on keeping everything organized? I’m already worried about the next two.

Susie’s reply:

Writing menus are a must.  This will assure that you do not over-plan, over-cook or over-look.  I always make one meal a smorgasbord of leftovers- an “all-star” review of sorts. Planning carefully days in advance and not being overly ambitious on new menu items will keep even the least experienced host from making mistakes.

Thanks – and please keep the questions coming!
