Thanksgiving will be here soon and successfully pulling off a Thanksgiving feast on a budget is not as difficult as you may think. The key is picking inexpensive recipes that are big on taste. This year I am hosting family and friends for Thanksgiving dinner and wanted to share my frugal but fancy-tasting Thanksgiving menu.
This classic Thanksgiving dessert, Creamy Pumpkin Pie takes only 5 mins to prep!
Ask your guests to bring their favorite holiday dish to the meal and give them some direction as to what type of dish they can bring: perhaps an appetizer, side or dessert. Then you only have to complement what people are bringing, and round out the menu with a few additional dishes.
And don’t forget to prep ahead and cook as many dishes as you can in advance, that way you will be able to enjoy the celebration with all the friends and family you are hosting.
