$30 serves 8 a Healthy Holiday Dinner

November 8th, 2010

Thanksgiving is a couple weeks away. Last year we figured out a Thanksgiving menu that serves 8 people for $30. I looked it over and I think it is still a good idea—healthy food that doesn’t break the budget. The turkey is roasted—not fried, the food is homemade so it isn’t loaded with sodium like many of the  convenience foods, the vegetables and fruits are prepared letting the natural flavors shine rather than be smothered, and we have skipped the crust on the pie and gone right to the ‘good for you’ pumpkin filling.

Check out the turkey dinner recipes and see how we figured the costs.
