Costco's Mini Turkey Dinner Is Perfect For A Low-Key Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is going to be pretty different this year for most of us. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the CDC is recommending we not travel for the holiday and limit our celebrations to the people within our own homes (via CDC). For many, this is enough of a reason to skip the labor-intensive Thanksgiving meal and make something a little more low-key. However, Costco has an even better idea: a pre-made mini Thanksgiving dinner for just $2.99 per pound! (via Instagram). 

The whole meal includes turkey, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and gravy, and the total price is in the $25 to $30 range. The comments on social media are widely positive, with many people either recommending the meal from previous experience or sharing it with family members in preparation for the holiday. One person even commented that the ready meal would be her backup plan, "in case I go into labor" (via Instagram). But this isn't the only option available at Costco this holiday season. 

Even more Costco options for a quick and easy Thanksgiving

We all have that one dish that defines the Thanksgiving holiday, and a pandemic is no reason to deprive ourselves of that favorite dish. In fact, quite the opposite, we could all use something tasty to be grateful for this year. Luckily, Costco has you covered in that department as well, with its pre-made Thanksgiving sides in the deli section (via She Knows). This way you don't have to make the side dishes you don't really care about, and can instead fill up on buttery mashed potatoes at just $1.99 a pound or mashed sweet potatoes for $1.79 per pound (via Instagram). 

Not wasting calories on superfluous sides also means there's more room left for dessert, which you can also grab at Costco! You may have already seen their pies on sale, but Instagrammer @costcodeals recently spotted the fan-favorite pumpkin cheesecake, which will set you back $14.99 (via Instagram).
