Reasonable Thanksgiving dinner

Any suggestions for a couple on a tight budget for a reasonably good Thanksgiving dinner? Is $20 or less pushing it?

To go containers

Last time I was there they did not have them, but I guess I will try again since I need a couple of other things there.

Red potatoes

Sometimes when I cook with red potatoes in soups and stews they fall apart or get mushy, sometimes they don't. What gives? I don't want them to get mushy.

To go containers

Where can I get to go containers like one gets at restaurants. I need those that can be microwaved, not those meltable foam ones.

Texas Muffin Tin

I am looking for the muffin tin to make muffins wide like they have at Costco. Is the Texas Muffin Tin the one? I can't seem to find any to look at locally.

Rice Pudding

I made my first rice pudding today. It said to rinse the rice before cooking. I forgot and it turned out fine. Why rinse it?

Has Anyone Ordered from Omaha Steaks?

I have had them and they are terrible. Try Frontier Meats...www.frontiermeats.com. I bought some of the filets and they were great. They even link you to Groupon, etc specials from their site. I got mine in 2 days from ordering.

Vacuum Sealing

I LOVE my Food Saver! It saves me money and time consistently. Does anyone have experience using one to freeze fresh sliced deli cold cuts? It would be great if it works to take advantage of the buy one, get one pound free special.

What is your favorite store bought cookie ?

Yes, Hydrox beat Oreos to shame! Also Keebler used to make a chocolate filled chocolate sandwich cookie. When in high school, that was my only reason for going grocery shopping!

Homemade TV dinners

I would like to make homemade "TV" dinners for freezing for later dining. Does anyone know where I can buy those microwave plastic dishes/trays that one gets frozen dinners in? Anyone know a source?

My partner loves Ritter Sport with Cornflakes. I have not been able to find it. Does anyone know anyone in Dallas that sells it?

Better Than Boullion Query

Been to their site, but the shipping is more than the product. Emailed them and they have not responded.

Better Than Boullion Query

Has anyone seen Better Than Bouillon Chili Base in the Dallas area? Who has the best selection of this companies products. I have found a couple at Kroger and none of their gravies.

Hake

Costco has Hake Loins on special. I have never cooked Hake. What kind of fish is Hake...taste, firmness, preparation, etc.

Red potatoes

Is there a difference in red skinned potatoes? Sometimes in soups I make the potatoes turn to mush after refrigeration and sometimes they hold together nicely for further serving.

Costo frozen fish

I was not raised to eat fish. I am trying to learn to like various preparations. I have tried Costco's fish sticks, Tortilla Crusted Tilapia, Basil Pesto Tilapia, Southwest Chipotle Cod. I have liked them all. I prefer mild fish. What other Costco frozen fish can you recommend? Please confine your response to Costco, thanks.

Whirl Cooking Oil in Dallas

I like to use Whirl for occasional frying and sautéing. Sam's has stopped carrying it in the stores I have visited. Does anyone know where I can get it in this area and not have to own a restaurant?

Buttermilk breading of CFS

What's your opinion of using buttermilk for CFS? Maybe half buttermilk/half sweet milk?

Supertaster

Chow is slowly going down the garbage disposer. Cancelling Supetaster pretty much nails the last nail in your coffin for me!
