My sister invited us to her house for Thanksgiving. On Saturday, I was shocked when I opened an email from her asking for money for our Thanksgiving dinner. She is charging $12 for adults and $16 for children. My sister says she is charging more for the children because they waste more food. I thought the $40 invoice for my husband, myself and my child were a joke until I called my sister and she was serious. I told her that it is wrong to invite someone to your home for the holidays and then charge them for the meal. She disagrees. Our family will be staying home this Thanksgiving unless my sister changes her mind. Is she wrong for charging us? Who’s right – me or her?

Daily Dish: The TSA is advising people traveling with Thanksgiving food dishes to pack them in their checked baggage. Cranberry sauce, creamy dips, spreads, gift baskets that contain liquid, mustard, salsa, jams and salad dressings should all be packed.
The TSA tells ABC, “Anything that presents a potential threat is looked at as a prohibited item. Items that have high concentrations of liquids fit that category. We have to err on the side of caution. The rule of thumb should be, if it’s questionable, you should ship them or bake or buy them on the opposite end of your trip. When the turkey goes through the x-ray machine, if there were an explosive in the cavity, we would see it. TSA workers are not permitted to eat perishable items left behind. Any food items are disposed of, just like bottles of water.”

I knew that if I wasn’t engaged by the time I saw her, it would be a weekend of more nagging hell. I knew that if I wasn’t engaged by the time I saw her, it would be a weekend of more nagging hell.
