      TODAY, Paige Says –
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and if you need a little help in the “turkey” department, I have a few great south Charlotte suggestions for you …
Are you looking to save a little money this Thanksgiving ?  If so, just head over to Trader Joe’s at Piper Station ( and you will be surprised with their yummy and affordable options for a fabulous turkey day …
For under $25.00 (yes, it IS true !) you can feed up to four people .  Try their turkey breast, cranberry relish, or sweet potato pie .  Add a light white wine for under $6.99 a bottle .  Toast to the good times and good deals !
Ok, you don’t want to cook but want everyone to think that you did?  No problem … just call or visit The Fresh Market at Carmel Commons ( or 704.541.1882) for a beautiful and ready-to-serve Thanksgiving spread !  You can order a fully-cooked, ready-to-serve 10-12 lb turkey for $3.49 a pound .  These turkeys are raised in the Pennsylvania Amish country and are fed a vegetarian diet that is free of animal by-products .  They are always fresh, never frozen and area raised naturally without antibiotics .
And don’t forget the side dishes … they have many to choose from :  sweet potato souffle, stuffing, cranberry relish, corn souffle – and the list goes on and on !  The dessert choices are amazing … Try the yummy carrot cake or the decadent pecan pie … two of my personal favorites !  Stop by, give them a call, or order online …but hurry !
If cooking IS your forte then head on over to your neighborhood Harris Teeter (have you noticed – they’re everywhere ! ) and shop to your heart’s desire ( .  Here you will find EVERYTHING and I do mean everything that you need to make your Thanksgiving dinner a big success.  Their fresh Butterball turkeys are $1.49 a pound and frozen are a budget-friendly $2.69 if you don’t have to cook for an army !  There are fresh, canned, and frozen cranberries … Ingredients to make even the most exotic dishes or your traditional favorites .  Even if you are cooking into the night (hope not !), the Harris Teeter at Stonecrest is open 24 hours !
However you spend your Thanksgiving Day, I wish you many blessings with family and friends …
