Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the fall bounty with family and friends. It’s not a time to worry about whether we cooked enough mashed potatoes or if the gravy boat is about to run dry. Just answer a few simple questions and our custom calculator will help make sure you have plenty of turkey to go around.
Cooking for large groups isn’t an exact science. Our calculator makes a few assumptions that you should keep in mind when supplying your answers.
- Kids count as half an adult, so if you have a growing teenager you’ll probably want to count him as an adult regardless of whether or not he gets to sit at the “big table” this year.
- We planned our drinks based on a 2- or 3-hour event. If Thanksgiving lasts all day at your house, you may want to select heavy drinkers even if Aunt Ida gets tipsy on a single glass of wine.
- Our dessert calculations assume that your pie serves 8. If you prefer cobbler or cupcakes, any recipe that serves 8 can be used as a straight substitution.
