KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Don’t stress yourself or your budget when it comes to trying to feed extra mouths over the holidays.  Here are some easy tips to get it all done AND stay on budget!

Have a plan:  Make a meal plan.  Let the grocery stores help.  Build your plan around what’s on sale at the stores each week and include ingredients you have in your pantry and kitchen.

Keep it simple:  Make a big pot of soup, pizza bar or potato bar.  They can all be made a head.  You also won’t spend your entire event slaving away in the kitchen!

Let others help:  Make it a potluck gathering.  That way everyone gets in on the cooking … and the cost!
