Well, it's official. I am hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year. Big B's family (my mother, father, and one sister in-law) will be joining us for what will hopefully be a wonderful, yet inexpensive feast. I've decided that I am going to set a goal of $30 for the entire dinner...and I mean the ENTIRE dinner (including festive decorations). Think I can do it? I KNOW I can.
How does one prepare for such? I've already started scanning magazines, cookbooks, grocery ads, coupon sites, etc. This weekend I will prepare an excel spreadsheet with what I'm going to buy, how much it costs, and what coupons I have for those items. Ok, well maybe not a real excel spreadsheet since my printer is out of ink and it would cost me $30 just to replace the ink ;-) But I digress...
As you know, I've already purchased my turkey, which was only $5. I think with that great start, I am well on my way to accomplishing this goal. I will update you on what happens.
Wish me luck, and if you have any great cost effective dishes that you would love to share, send them on.
Cheers and Blessings,
