Thanksgiving Menu 2012

Hello Everyone. Today I bring you my Thanksgiving menu for this years Thanksgiving. Which is this Thursday. This year I'm having a small one. It's just going to be my parents, sister, hubby and me. Last year I had over 12 people over at my house who I cook for. Also it was my first year hosting Thanksgiving. I will tell you I love hosting Christmas over Thanksgiving due to it seem easier for me to cook a ham then a turkey. Last year it felt like the turkey took 8 year to cook in the roaster. This year I'm going to cook the turkey in the oven. So we will see how that will go.  Also this year I will have pot holder to use instead of dish towels. Hubby pick these roster pot holder up at the dollar store. They were two for a dollar. He got two pack of them. So lets hope 4 will be good. If not out will come the Easter pot holders. Now on to what we will be eating this up coming Thursday.

1. Turkey
2. Yams with marshmallows
3. Stuffing~ I will not be eating this because I don't like it
5. Deviled Eggs
6. Cranberries Sauce~ Another thing I will not be eating
7. 5 in 1 salad
8. Green beans~ My dad make's this for Thanksgiving and Christmas
9. Pumpkin Pie
10. Mashed Potatoes with Gravy
11.  Asparagus
12. Cracker and Chesse~ before dinner
Also the best part of this dinner is the fact the turkey cost me .15 cents. Kroger was run a sale on there turkeys. If you brought 10.00 in food you get the turkey for .69 cent a pound. The turkey we picked up is a 21.95lb and normal would cost 34.90. So we brought 10 dollars in food. For Thanksgiving and the week. So after the .69 cent a pound the turkey came down to 15.15. Well my parent went to the casino a few weeks ago and they were handing out 15.00 coupons out for any brand of turkey and ham. Since they are coming to my house for thanksgiving. They gave me the coupon. So after you take the 15 off the 15.15 price. You have a turkey for .15 cents. This so made my day yesterday. Over all yesterday I saved a total of 99.75 in coupons and sale. A friend of my wrote on Facebook that I'm the woman.
