Thanksgiving Menu 2012

This year we are headed to my in-laws for Thanksgiving day and then hosting my family at our home the weekend after. We're very fortunate to celebrate with both of our families and I'm sure y'all know I love having so many reasons to cook delicious meals! This is our first year hosting Thanksgiving and I'm really excited to prepare a meal for my family in our new home. What are your plans this holiday?

Each recipe should serve at least 8 people so cut them in half or pick and choose dishes to prepare depending on the size of your get together.

Typically the sales ads reset on Wednesdays each week. With Thanksgiving falling on Thursday, most ads will run through 11/22. The best deal I have seen on turkeys this week is at Food Lion for $.49/lb with additional $35 purchase. If anyone has seen a better one, please leave a comment and I'll update.

I want to let each and every one of you know that I'm so thankful to you for reading Coupon Kitchen! This little hobby of mine has come to be a big part of my life and it wouldn't be possible without all of your support. I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been thinking about making a sweet potato gratin this week too! I have some sage in the fridge that I want to use up before it goes bad. :) I hope you like the mushroom gravy!
