A friend of mine had heard we are having our family dinner for Thanksgiving at my house and made the comment that she could never afford to feed so many people. I told her it was easy on the budget, if you plan ahead.

I got this recipe from a friend some time ago and have made it countless times. It's a request from my grown children and their wives.


Now they are serving it to their friends and getting rave reviews as well.

One way to make Thanksgiving expenses less painful in the wallet is, say a month to 6 weeks before the big day, gather your recipes, assemble a grocery list, and start buying non perishables every week. On the last week, you should only have to buy the turkey, fresh vegetables and any dairy products.
