I went grocery shopping last night and its so expensive buying all the things you need. I'm not even hosting but I'm bringing a pecan pie, green bean dish, and a wine sangria slush to my in-laws house. I had to buy everything I needed last night to make only a couple recipes and it really adds up. I guess it would be nice if I had everything stockpiled but I don't because we just moved. But even if I did have a stockpile, would I really have chopped pecans and slivered almonds? Probably not because they would be eaten so quickly in my house. I also bought a couple turkeys to give to two friends who helped us move. I feel funny giving friends cash but I'm okay with giving gifts or food. One friend has a turkey fryer so we will probably deep fry the turkey that we're giving him at our house. Maybe I could pick up a bottle of booze for each of the friends to go with the turkey. I know that they don't expect anything but I just want them to know how much we appreciate all of their help.
Would you be okay with getting a turkey for helping a friend move?
