When family and friends roll in for the big Thanksgiving dinner, it’s sometimes hard to gauge how much food you’ll need to keep your guests full and happy. That’s where the handy Guest-imator comes in, developed by Save The Food. Plug in the number of eaters you expect, make some menu choices, and voila! There’s your custom list of quantities needed, whether you’re a meat eater or vegetarian. You can even select the amount of leftovers you want for post-feast noshing.

Speaking of leftovers—keep an eye out for a delicious Shepherd’s Pie recipe we’ll share on  Facebook in the next few days!
