While shopping at our local co-op grocer last week we decided to get a local organic turkey.
A 15 lb turkey for the 2 of us.
We rallied some family members and like that, it’s on!
What will it take to do a full organic meal for 5? We headed to Whole Foods to find out.
We got all the ingredients to make the following dishes (from scratch!):
Turkey (not from Whole Foods but included in the grand total)
Roasted garlic and herb butter
Green bean casserole (doubled the recipe)
Stuffing (w. ground pork)
Garlic mashed potatoes
Mashed butternut squash (butternuts from the garden)
Chocolate chip cookies
We braced for the bill… I mean, the amount of food we got is enough to feed way more than 5 people!
With the turkey and everything, our fully organic Thanksgiving meal cost us $150 … am I crazy to think that is a respectable number?
I’ll be sure to take some pix 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving to everyone – please try to buy local and keep it non-GMO!
Oh and… while I have your attention, please try to keep it simple on Friday; let’s not give those corporations (who are ruining our happiness) any more of our hard-earned money 🙂
