Keep your eyes open for the next contest. We want the chance to give away more great prizes to everyone, so keep checking the blog for future giveaways.
Gobble! Gobble! As you think about what you will serve for Thanksgiving, consider the recent information provided by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF). The American Farm Bureau Federation stated that the average cost of the Thanksgiving meal would show a 13% increase, which brings the cost of a meal to feed 10 people to $49.20, a $5.73 increase from the previous average of $43.47. Don’t let the numbers get you down, because the price is still less than $5 a person. If the numbers are alarming, consider cutting back to avoid the leftovers and the extra holiday pounds, invite more people to enjoy the feast with you, or bypass the cooking and volunteer to serve meals at a local charity!
In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we thought it would be fun to classify a Thanksgiving meal. We might as well exercise our brains a little before sitting down to the big feast! Participate and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a chance to win 1 of 4 Starbucks Gift Cards. Post your classifications for the items on our shopping list, suggest other food items, and share your plans for the holiday in the “comments” section.
