I just received my Thanksgiving Food Box from a local church, and decided that I would try and make a complete Turkey Day Dinner for about 8 people from only the food in the box. Here's what they gave me:
And here is the menu I came up with for Thanksgiving Dinner:
Baked Turkey: turkey
Mashed Potatoes: potatoes, butter, and evaporated milk
Stuffing: stuffing mix, celery, and apples
Green Beans: can of green beans
Sweet Potatoes with Sugar and Butter: can of sweet potatoes, sugar, and margarine
White Cheddar Pasta: box of pasta mix
Apple Crumble or Cobbler: apples, flour, sugar, and butter
Chocolate Cake: cake mix and eggs
I think that will do it, and it's plenty of food. Most of these dishes are easy to make, and You can find recipes for most of them online or maybe at Thriftyfun. Happy Thanksgiving!
