I'm asking because I'm wondering how "needy" people would need to no be able to roast a turkey and have a few side dishes.

I figure it could be done for the cost of a carton of cigarettes.

Edit: replaced brand name with cigarettes

$43.67 enough for 10-12 people.

$200 for 7 people

Hmm, not sure exactly, but for the basics for the wife an I it is more than $80. That's without a lot of the traditional side dishes.

$0.00 I have everything at the house already.

12 bucks on a bottle of wine and whatever a green bean casserole costs. Heading to Mom's for the rest of dinner.

Not much this year, kind of a potluck style. Just making the Turkey and Stuffing, so under $20.00

All I've been asked to bring is a green bean casserole.

So, like $5?

I bought a 13 lb turkey at Winco for $.68/lb.

And a bag of bake-n-serv rolls. The rest of it is being brought to our house, it's a potluck with assignments.

Well, since I came down with the flu the last few days, I will be staying home in bed.

So nothing.

Nothing. I will be out of the country. Work pays the bills and the FSA.

Not much since I am only bringing cranberry sauce (my wife makes it with a box of jello, fresh cranberries, and crushed pineapple. It is like crack ) and pumpkin pie to my family thanksgiving.

Since I went broke remodeling my kitchen I have been going to the Cuban cantinas...$26 a week and I throw food away...they are offering ham, rice and potatoes by weight
Link Posted: 11/21/2012 5:12:42 AM EST
Couple of hundred bucks on booze

Think the food was about $50 for a fresh turkey and all the trimmings.

Under 75 bucks for 10 people including a few bottles of wine, some beers. Scratch cooking is the way to go.
That's bacon wrapped turkey, home smoked ham, a few pies, a cake, lots of sides and veggies. I'm doing the meats, my wife and MIL are doing the rest.

22lb turkey: ~$15 (with purchase of $40 worth of other items... those items were not T-Day related)

otherwise, the Turkey would have been $50

19lb Farmer John Gold Wrap Ham: $50

Ingredients for side dishes: ~$80 (dressing, potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, etc.)

Drinks: ~$80 (wine & booze, no sodas)

Looks to be ~$225 for food to feed 22-24 people.

However, I need to buy more folding chairs this year to accomodate the group, and might also pick up another table: ~$50 chairs, ~100 table.

$50 or so for 10-12 people (mostly children). Most stores have a sale on turkeys ($5). Mash potatos, sweet potatos, home made rolls, home made pumpkin pies, stuffing, cranberry sauce, fruit salad, garden salad...... it really doesn't cost all that much money.

I had no idea peanut oil was so expensive. $50 for 4.5 gallons.
Link Posted: 11/21/2012 5:31:13 AM EST

Cost of gas to and from Dallas for time with the family.
Link Posted: 11/21/2012 5:32:40 AM EST
Under $60 with the green beans we grew ourselves and the turkey/etc. bought on sale. Feeding 13 here.

$85 if you include the family sized jug 'O Kraken I bought for after.

Which is why I'll never fry a turkey.

I'm not spending anything on food save the sweet potatoes and marshmallows my gf wanted; we're going to my parent's house
Now, we plan on doing some shopping in the evening...we'll see how we spend there

Link Posted: 11/21/2012 5:50:06 AM EST
Does this count what I spend on Black Friday?

Because that might make it a little more ridiculous.
