Halloween is behind us, and now we can finally look ahead to the next great holiday. Thanksgiving gives us all an excuse to eat until we can’t button our pants and fall asleep in front of the TV. What’s not to love?
But cooking a Thanksgiving meal for an entire family is no easy feat, and it’s easy to take the time and money that goes into the meal for granted. So what if you had to pay $30 to your family in order to enjoy the turkey and stuffing?
This was the question posed on Twitter, and people had a lot to say.
Not surprisingly, most people were NOT here for it.

But what would the $30 include? Can you get seconds? Is this a buffet-style, all-you-can-eat deal? What about drinks?

But there were some people — aka the family cooks — who pointed out just how much it costs to make the meal.
Mac & cheese with the good cheeses will set you back a cool $40-50 alone so… Mess around & host a dinner you can’t afford if you want to.— Angela (@TheKitchenista) November 1, 2017
