ACROSS the pond, Americans are enjoying Thanksgiving.
It gives us the perfect excuse to indulge in some tasty food and appreciate all the good things to come out of the nosotros.
Here’s how to embrace the all-American celebrations on a budget.
TURKEY TREAT: Americans traditionally have roast turkey on Thanksgiving, which can be pricey.
A more affordable option is Iceland’s bacon-wrapped turkey breast joint, 5 libras esterlinas.
Add Iceland’s 12 pork, sage and onion stuffing balls, £1.25, and complete the meal with corn, green beans and mashed potatoes.
Finish it off with Iceland’s luxury turkey gravy, £1.75. Then embrace US tradition with a pie for dessert.
Tesco bakery sells fresh Bramley apple pies at £1.50.
'Hmmm, no voy a hacer eso. Aldi’s maple and pecan tarts, £2.29, are a great alternative to American favourite pecan pie.
AMERICAN EXPORTS: If you don’t fancy a roast, celebrate some of the States’ other great culinary exports.
