I Went Shopping for Thanksgiving at Trader Joe's & This Is How Much It Cost - Shopping
From The Kitchn - November 8, 2017

Trader Joe's is a lot of people's favorite supermarket. Its specialty itemslike cookie butter and cultured, salted French butter (the best thing that ever happened to toast)are beloved. But Trader Joe's is more than just a place to buy quirky snacks. It's also a great place to stock up on inexpensive staples for everyday dinners and holidays alike.

To see how Trader Joe's stacks up to other stores, I went to one in Chicago on a Saturday afternoon and priced out all the ingredients necessary to make a complete Thanksgiving dinner.

Here's What Thanksgiving Costs at Trader Joe's

The Menu

I went shopping for the ingredients to prepare a classic Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green bean casserole, and cranberry sauce, using these five recipes. The menu does not include drinks, desserts, or rolls. This menu serves eight people, and you will need an eight- to 10-pound turkey.
