If you don't already have your Thanksgiving menu planned, now is the time to pull it all together. Thankfully, we have had so many good deals on traditional holiday foods that it should be easy to provide a bountiful feast for a reasonable cost.
Please share your Thanksgiving menu or favorite dish! Feel free to include links to recipes as well.
Following is our Thanksgiving menu. We will have 6 people for our Thanksgiving Day meal (including 2 grandparents) and an additional 5 people joining us for dessert later in the evening.
Buffalo chicken dip (using chicken on sale for $1.99/lb recently)
Herb & Garlic Greek yogurt dip (Heluva dip .50 with sale and coupon)
Veggies and Wheat Thins for dipping in to the dips
House of Raeford Whole turkey, 14 lbs (these are .47/lb at Lowes Foods right now) with gravy
Brisket (not frugal but my dad made a special request)
