It helps to know what to look for when you visit the grocery store. Here is a list of all the lovely produce that is in season in November. Print it out and take it with you on your next shopping trip.

You might notice that many of the fruits and vegetables that are in season for November were also in season for October. This is because nature doesn’t follow the same calendar that we do. Each type of produce has its own growing season. Most do not match up to the end of a particular month. The good news is that you get another month to enjoy your favorite Fall fruits and vegetables!

The produce to pay attention to the most this month are the ones that are typically served in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Sweet potatoes are one of the classic sides at Thanksgiving. Many people serve them with slightly toasted marshmallows on top.

You will also need some “regular” potatoes if you would like to serve “made from scratch” mashed potatoes this year. The texture and flavor can be so much nicer than what you get from the boxed kind.

Pumpkins, of course, are a key ingredient in pumpkin pie. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, you could make a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert instead. You could make a batch of pumpkin flavored cookies if you want a simple dessert that includes a traditional Thanksgiving flavor.

Let’s not forget the cranberries! Wouldn’t it be nice to serve fresh cranberries instead of the kind that comes from a can? Do you miss the cranberry bliss bars from Starbucks? Food.com has a nice “copycat” recipe for you.

Apples are another great fall favorite. Many families serve an apple pie as an alternative to pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. Of course, there will be people who want a slice of apple pie and a slice of pumpkin pie as well!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
