Potatoes use to be so reasonably priced. Last week I looked at a 10 pound sack of russets for $7.99 say Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!!! Forget about Yukon Golds, New red potatoes, so on. I talked with my produce Market owner and he is going to get me 25 pounds of Russets (I use these for baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, oven baked french fried wedges) any which way, our family loves potatoes. How about you? The cost under $11.00 bucko’s! I’ll have plenty for Thanksgiving as I make several potato dishes. The best part (aside from cost) will be freshness I’ll pick them up the day before Thanksgiving.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Not sure yet? I have been working on the list I am on desserts now. The usual Pumpkin pie, Old fashion Pecan pie, Sweet potato pie, Coconut cream layer cake, brownies. Like I mentioned the list keeps growing. I better stop! Ha!Ha!

Then there are the appetizers, snacks, dips that’s a long list too. I really have to limit myself to four appetizers. 2 types of dips, one cold and one served warm. I’ll make Lil’smokie (sausages) in the slow cooker using a orange marmalade sauce, mini meatballs in mushroom gravy.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Get working on your list if you are hosting your Family and Friends this Thanksgiving! See YOU on Tuesday. cheffie cooks easy 1-2-3.

  1. I don’t know how the government can say we are not in a time of steep inflation. Everything is constantly going up including food and clothing. This will be the first Thanksgiving I will not be with my kids so it will be different but we are going to have Thanksgiving dinner the night before I leave for France. We always do a traditional dinner.


    • Hi, finding ways to beat the inflation (that is evident everywhere I turn) is at times frustrating and challenging however, I am compelled to continue my quest to properly nourish my family and Holidays are very special. I am so happy you will have a traditional dinner the night before. Enjoy your trip to France!!! Cheryl
