Vintage Thanksgiving Menu - A Moderate Price Feast


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
-mushroom bisque
-celery
-paprika wafers
-green olives
-whole cranberry sauce
-roast turkey
-giblet gravy
-savory stuffing
-holiday sweet potatoes
-creamed onions
-green beans
-lettuce hearts with blue-cheese dressing
-clover-leaf rolls
-butter
-pumpkin chiffon pie
-coffee


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!
