I found this series of three Thanksgiving menus in a 1952 Woman's Day magazine and I thought it would be fun to share one a week until Thanksgiving.
All of the menus are based around a turkey and gravy, but the sides accommodate your holiday meal budget, from low to high.
This "moderate" menu includes:
-french fruit cup
-whole cranberry sauce
-holiday sweet potatoes
-lettuce hearts with blue-cheese dressing
-pumpkin chiffon pie
In 1952 this cost about $1.35 per person, which would be $11.93 in today's money according to an inflation calculator.
Stay tunned for the "cost cutting" menu next week!
