Gourmet Thanksgiving Leftovers

If you want to maximize your Thanksgiving meal, find a few creative ways to use your leftovers. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.

Save Your Thanksgiving from Bad Weather, Bad Food, Big Business

Thanksgiving might not feel like the most appetizing time to start thinking about the safety and health of the food supply. But maybe out harvest festival is the perfect time to consider it -- and to consider what it would cost to give your family a kinder, healthier Thanksgiving Day feast.

Christmas Dinner by the Numbers

The holidays are a time for nostalgia -- and stuffing your stomach to the brim. So why not combine the two by taking inventory of a typical Christmas dinner, from eggnog to fruitcake, and comparing today's prices -- and, in some instances, portions -- to those of yesteryear?

Remember to Thank Canada for Your Thanksgiving Dinner

When it comes to eating locally, it's hard to beat the original Thanksgiving dinner. Today's holiday diners have far more options than the Pilgrims, and the string beans, sweet potatoes, cranberries and such on your table may come from abroad -- but they probably didn't have to come too far.

Gas Prices Around the Globe: The Highs and the Lows

With U.S. gas prices near historic highs, Americans are anxious about the cost of filling up. But we still feel far less pain at the pump than drivers in many other developed nations. On the flip side, if you drive in the right world cities, you can still pay less than $1 a gallon.

Record Wholesale Turkey Prices May Just Be the Beginning

Wholesale turkey prices are currently hovering around $1.09 per pound, the highest they've ever reached. Several factors are behind the record, but perhaps the biggest one comes from Washington, in the form of Federal Reserve monetary policy.

Cranberry Harvest Less Bountiful than Expected

The Agriculture Department had predicted that U.S. cranberry production would rise 6% this year for the second-largest harvest on record. But the 2010 crop came in 5% below 2009. Still, things are going well for Ocean Spray, the largest U.S. co-op of cranberry growers.
