Anyone budgeting for a big (or small) meal?

No, we're lucky enough that both our parents still have dinner. All we have to do is bring a side. I usually make pumpkin pie or one and scalloped corn for the other.

Not budgeting for a full meal, thank goodness.

We're going to a friend's house so I'm going to plan a few desserts and a couple of sides to bring. Should be a blast!

No, but we have to include the road trip to GA in our November budget ($100 should be more than enough).

we ordered an angel food Tday box. The only things it doesn't have are a turkey and my bread stuffing ( it does have cornbread dressing-my late mil and gma both made good cornbread dressing. I just don't have the knack for it)
We may not even be staying here for Tday.
anon for this one

In our house the leftovers feed us for lunch and dinner for at least a few days or longer so maybe the expense isn't as bad as we think is is!
