Um, really? How is Thanksgiving just two and a half weeks away? It seems just like yesterday I was celebrating Easter by making these cool tye-dyed eggs. But the fact is IT is just a couple of weeks away! To help you get ready I will be celebrating Thanksgiving all this week on Kitchen Concoctions. I will share some useful recipes and tips to hep give you some T-day inspiration!
First up is an article I wrote for meal planning/recipe site Food on the Table, about hosting Thanksgiving on a budget. I have also included a tasty and easy stuffing recipe (really you would never know this was doctored packaged stuffing mix) that would be perfect for Thanksgiving or any chicken or pork dish on a busy weeknight!
· Plan early- Three weeks before Thanksgiving plan your menu. Gather the recipes you will be using and take an inventory of your pantry. Keep a running list of ingredients needed and watch for them to go on sale. Keep things simple and stick with tried and true traditional dishes. To help reduce costs, consider making assignments to dinner guests to bring beverages, side dishes and desserts.
