If you are like me you already have it planned and half bought.
In tip #4 i advised you to go shopping. No worries if you didn't.
This is another thing that usually makes it to the last minute list.
So if you are anything like me you want perfection.
As though it would not be the best meal unless every tradition
was followed. Even if you cannot find the things you want,
you can always make do. Promise it still will be amazing !!
Make the things you know your family will enjoy.
You do not have to have a turkey.
A holiday meal can be anything you want it to be.
This year we will have a turkey but only because i
was able to get one for low cost back in the beginning of October.
The rest of my menu will be family favorites. ( it doesn't change often)
Pineapple glazed Turkey
Twice baked Mac n Cheese
Mashed Potatoes with Homemade Gravy
Corn on the Cob
Homemade Apple Pie with Ice Cream
If you are on a very tight budget
shop for your holiday meal with what's on sale.
Because stores know everyone is buying
turkeys, hams and things like that
most other meats go on sale.
