I agree with the other posters. Buy a smaller sized Turkey (after all, you don't need a week of leftovers). Then make mashed potatoes (from a box or from scratch they are pretty cheap), cranberry sauce (canned is great for less than $1.00). Buy the stuffing mixes they have on sale for $1.00 or so and just kick it up with a handful of craisins or roasted pine nuts. Or leave it as is, most people like them. Then, Buy a few fresh sweet potatoes and green beans and cook these yourself. You can also get broccoli, frozen corn, or frozen glazed carrots. Get boxed macaroni and cheese. All you have to do is add a little extra of your own cheese then put it into a buttered pan and top with unseasoned bread crumbs, butter, and some more cheese (grated) and it will taste great. Biscuits or cornbread are both great and are cheap get Pillsbury Grands or Jiffy. You can get frozen pies or make your own. Most stores sell pies for about $7.00 each, but you can probably get a frozen one on sale for less. Remember, you can make all of the inexpensive things taste better by adding some fresh herbs and a few fresh ingredients. Have your guests bring the wine and appetizers. You can probably feed 4-8 people for under $50.00. The most important thing is to have fun with the family. Happy Thanksgiving!
