Use Your Halloween Pumpkin
Instead of purchasing squash use that pumpkin that going to rot outside. especially if it's been carved.
Watch for Sales
Watch the grocery store ads for sales and don't forget to check for coupons in the paper. Some fresh veggies can be blanched and frozen for later use. Some things in cans can be bought ahead of time. I buy cranberries and freeze them. If you are hosting, always ask that others bring something with them: beverage, dessert, pre dinner veggie platter, snacks or a side dish. Have fun and remember to enjoy Thanksgiving with those around you.
