Process Essay Examples Recipes For Thanksgiving

1. Location, Location, Location... Doesn't Matter

The one thing I've learned over my years of spring break trips is that where you go ultimately doesn't matter. Traveling with people you love is all you need, and the rest will fall into place. Commercial places like Myrtle Beach are going to be naturally more expensive, so visit a lesser known beach (or no beach at all) because it'll be cheaper and less crowded.

2. Family and Friends Discount

Family is great, friends are better, so why not exploit them for a place to stay? Once you figure out whom you want to travel with, check to see if any of your travel companions have connections to places you could stay over spring break. Using those connections are often cheaper and more reliable than using commercial means.

3. Food for Thought

Spring break is the time to get caught up on sleep, not do anything remotely productive, and eat like there is no tomorrow. However, sleep and not doing anything is free (most the time), but food is not. The quickest way to blow through your spring break budget is by going out to eat too much. While it can be tempting to hit up all the local dives, it's important not to get carried away when treating yourself. When you are packing prior to the trip, go through your own pantry and find any snacks that you already have. Upon your arrival, plan out your meals with whomever you traveled with, only eating out maybe two or three times over the course of your trip. Remember, sharing is caring. Whoever you traveled with, share things to make the trip cheaper and build poor college kid camaraderie.

5. Great Value, Great Life

This advice applies to most of life, but off-brand items at the grocery store are perfectly fine as compared to name brand items. Those beautifully bland labels are cheap and... well, that's basically it. So there is no reason that your cabinets at spring break aren't packed with off-brand foods. Those combined with cooking meals make for a much more cost-effective spring break.

6. Drinks To Make Your Head Hurt, Not Your Wallet

Since I am not of age, my good friend Charlie will be writing this section.

"First off, get off your craft beer high horse. It may have that pun you thought was funny for five seconds, but it costs ten times more than Rolling Rock. If you are partying on a budget, find some Milwaukee brews and get drunk.

Second, mixes are cheap, and they are made so that you don't have have to taste that three-dollar vodka you poured into it. Remember that you're just trying to forget about that midterm you definitely failed. Also, don't bring your bottles to the beach, that's how you get slapped with fines and ruin your day. Get those solo cups or that thermos that says "I <3 mom" and slap that full of Pina Colada or Tequila.

Hope this helps. I'm giving the computer back to Logan now. I tried not to curse, so if you want to hear this in your voice, just add an expletive every other word."

7. Guys Afternoon In (GAI)

You traveled with them, so spend some time with them. Even more than spending time with them, don't throw money down the toilet by going to various tourist traps like putt-putt, aquariums, or theme parks. Instead, hangout with your friends by playing games together, sitting outside and talking, or walking to nearby holes-in-the-wall. Those local, hidden hotspots will provide a much better time than any of those tourist traps that just want your money in exchange for a mediocre experience.

How to Prepare a Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate our joys with friends and family. Unfortunately, if you are the person designated to cooking the holiday dinner, the joys can turn into complete and total fear. I'll never forget the first time I made Thanksgiving dinner for twenty family members and friends. I waited until the last minute to start and the dinner ended in a complete disaster. In the years following that failure, I have learned that preparing a Thanksgiving dinner is easy...if you plan ahead.

Eventually the day arrives when you are selected to prepare the Thanksgiving dinner. Don't panic. With a few hours of planning, your dinner can be a complete success. The key to pulling off a successful…show more content…

I believe that the menu is where your success will be ensured. Take your time and consider all your guests. Be sure to be aware if someone is allergic to a specific meat or spice. Also, you probably know what your family's traditions are, so plan accordingly. If your family's tradition includes turkey and ham, try to keep to tradition as tradition makes everything go smoother. You can also add side dishes to enhance the meal and try to start new traditions.

Most Thanksgiving holiday meals include the traditional turkey, ham and prime rib. If you are having a large dinner party, I would suggest making all three. Preparing three different main dishes can be difficult, but as I mentioned above, planning is everything. Remember, if you have a small oven, you can always cook the ham a day in advance, roast the turkey on Thanksgiving Day and save the prime rib for the barbeque grill while the turkey is cooking.

The next step in meal planning is planning the side dishes. Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Stuffing, Yams, Green Bean Casserole, Chili Casserole, Ambrosia, Dinner Rolls, Cranberry Sauce, Deviled Eggs and an olive tray are our traditional dishes. Many of these dishes can be prepared in advance so you have time to enjoy your guests.

The final planning stage of the dinner will be dessert. Thanksgiving Day just isn't the same without the pies and desserts. My daughters are usually the ones in charge of dessert. Not only does relying
