Thanksgiving Fall Dishes

I am going to take a break from gardening for a few weeks to play along with Simply Sugar and Gluten Free for her Holiday Food Fest.

Her host Tasty Eats at Home is featuring Thanksgiving and Fall Dishes and I thought it was a perfect way to plan my Thanksgiving menu this year:

Thanksgiving Menu

Herb Roasted Turkey
Apple Cranberry Pecan Dressing
Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Cranberry sauce
Honey Molasses Dinner Rolls

Servings: 12

Serving size: 1/12 of a menu.
Percent daily values based on the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) for a 2000 calorie diet.
Nutrition information calculated from menu items.

Menu Type

Author: Susan Ewing

I can't do anything about the the nutrition however, I can do something about the price. Here are the original costs:

Menu Cost: $50.80
Menu Serving Cost: $4.23

Now, take away the price of the turkey and potatoes that I got for free and viola:

Menu Cost: $31.35 (on sale)
Menu Serving Cost: $2.61 (on sale)

You can even get it down to $25 with coupons (which are everywhere this time of year) for the greens beans, soup, stuffing and cranberry sauce. That's right...$25 for Thanksgiving for 12. You can't beat that with a stick!

Looks like a delicious menu! You're more organized than I am - I still am not sure what all I plan on making. (we usually do semi-pot-luck, I just make some of the "main" dishes) Thanks for linking up!
