A Disposable, Yet Still Very Festive, Thanksgiving Feast

In an effort to make this Thanksgiving as easy-peasy as possible I purchased Thanksgiving themed paper plates from the Dollar Store on which to serve the Turkey Dinner that I purchased from the deli counter of our local supermarket. By the way, our turkey dinner also serves between 6-8.



These are not ordinary paper plates. They are poly coated paper plates. In addition, they are not ordinary poly coated paper plates. They are 10.5 inch poly coated paper plates, which is a full inch and a half larger than an ordinary nine inch paper plate.




An ordinary nine inch paper plate compared to a 10.5 inch poly coated paper plate.

The two Hershey w/Almond candy bars, which, by the way, were purchased for twenty five cents each at the local Family Dollar store, are not included in the purchase price of either the ordinary nine inch paper plates or the 10.5 poly coated paper plates, they are only pictured to give perspective.

There are eight 10.5 inch poly coated paper plates for a dollar, which means there will be plenty of plates left over for a week of leftover dinners, and, or, snacks.

Jesus Christ!
10.5 poly coated!!

I'm not positive, but I think that puts to shame anything our 99 Cent Store has to offer.
