Many of us know Thanksgiving to be about abundance. We want to provide our families the ultimate five course meal and ensure that everyone can go back for seconds, with many leftovers to spare. To impress your guests and make use of seasonal ingredients, all without breaking the bank, try delegating different menu items to your guests for a potluck style feast, make your Thanksgiving basics from scratch or save on your ingredients with grocery apps like Zweet that help you build cash back rewards for different items you buy that week. The free app, available for both Apple and Android users is a next generation model where shoppers merely snap a shot of their receipt, upload to Zweet’s mobile app and see savings accumulate in their account within 24 hours. Once they hit the $20 mark, they can request to have a cheque mailed.
This rustic and hearty apple pear crumble is a warm and comforting way to end your Thanksgiving feast without any of the fuss, effort or high cost.
