It’s time to menu plan for…Thanksgiving! It’s a day of over-eating indulgence but it doesn’t have to be over-spending. Rather than doing a menu plan for the whole week, I came up with a plan for the one dinner we’re all focused on.
Not only are all the Thanksgiving favorites still on sale, they are the best I’ve seen the whole month! The prices listed are for my local Shaw’s grocery store. BUT, I’m in Boston, super expensive, so it’s probably at least the same where you live or maybe even less! Shaw’s is a chain of the Super-Valu stores.
I have linked all the recipes to ones found on Food Network. I think we can agree it is the one-stop site for all things Thanksgiving! Also, @FoodNetwork started following me on Twitter this week, which I’m still thrilled about! So, this is my “Thanks” on Thanksgiving for the follow!
