GRESHAM, Ore --A Gresham mother of five has come up with a Thanksgiving menu that amounts to just $3 a person.

It s well below the national average of $4.50 a serving.

You want to focus on simple, in season ingredients and shop the discount stores like Grocery Outlet, recommended Angela Davis.

She s the woman behind the popular website Frugal Living Northwest.

Turkey is a good bargain but at $1.00 to $1.50 a guest it will be the most expensive thing on my menu, said Davis.

Her other menu items include Harvest Apple Stuffing at 49 cents a serving and Green Bean Casserole at 44 cents a person.

For dessert she relies on frozen pumpkin pie, it costs just $3 a package and it tastes great, she added.

Angela believes you can satisfy your guests for $3 a meal and thinks they might enjoy knowing how little you had to spend.

Of course I m going to brag about it! It s an accomplishment, she concluded with a laugh.
