I’m just curious how much HO folks spent on Thanksgiving. No judgements here (at least from me, and I hope from other posters). I’m talking “all in” costs for the meal - not travel, not per person, not excluding left overs . . . just all in.
I spent $300 (for what ended up being 9 people)
For me that was all the food (appetizers, meal, desserts), wine, plastic (don’t even ask) plates/silverware, everything. It was more than I normally would spend because I had to buy spices, sugar, flour, plastic service items, foil pans, etc, etc, etc - which I would normally have had on hand at home (or used real dishes and baking pans).
I’m curious because I read all these “the average cost for a thanksgiving meal” and I always think to myself . . . how do they do it for that much. I always make way too much food and have leftovers but I want it that way too. (I also know what I spent this year because I was traveling and had to do all my shopping in 2 trips on one day - local grocery chain and WF).
Anyone else up for sharing?
Average cost for 10 people in 2019 . . . . . just under $50
