By , dealnews contributor

Thanksgiving is coming, which of course means the good (Black Friday) and the bad (fruitcake) are on their way, too. And with 15 days to go until November 22, there's not much time to get ready for the feast that kicks off the holiday season. But never fear! Today's roundup features deals on recipes, dinnerware, and even your whole Thanksgiving Day meal.

  1. Martha Stewart Living Radio Thanksgiving Hotline Recipes 2011 Cookbook
    Vendor: Sirius XM
    Price: Free

    Is It Worth It?: This Editors' Choice deal is the next best thing to having Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, and Mario Batali over for Thanksgiving. In what's becoming a holiday tradition, Martha Stewart offers this PDF download of her 73-page cookbook for free. Recipes run the gamut from Lagasse's Butternut Squash Lasagna to Charlie Palmer's Prosciutto-Crusted Asparagus. As for an edible fruitcake? Some challenges are beyond even the master chefs.

  2. Costco Deluxe Thanksgiving Turkey Feast

    Price: $149.99 with free shipping

    Is It Worth It?: Don't feel like cooking this Turkey Day? You can always leave it up to the pros at Costco, as this fully-cooked feast feeds 12 to 14 people and includes a 14-lb. turkey, sage-seasoned cornbread stuffing with mushrooms, green beans with almonds and sautéed onions, maple-glazed sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes with garlic confit, turkey gravy, cranberry orange sauce, and cinnamon apple cobbler with streusel oat topping. Meanwhile, notice the conspicuous lack of fruitcake on this menu, and make a note of it.

    Vendor: True Value

    Is It Worth It?: Fruitcake aside, not having enough table or counter space, can ruin a holiday meal. Pick up this Editors' Choice folding table to avoid the debacle. Plus, when the holidays are over, this table folds in half for easy storage and is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Made of rugged steel tube frame with a powder coated finish, this table sits 29" high and folds to 4-3/4" wide.

Available in Cream White, this 54-piece set is oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe and includes settings for six. So set out the dinner plates, entrée plates, bowls, sauce dishes, cups and saucers, plus the large serving bowl, casserole dish, and more on that folding table and bon appetit!

  5. Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids 24-Piece Food Storage Set
    Vendor: Ace Hardware
    Price: $9.99 with free in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $9

    Is It Worth It?: Thanksgiving food is fun to eat, but what do you do with all those leftovers? This set includes two 1/2-cup, two 1-1/4-cup, two 2-cup, two 3-cup, two 5-cup, and two 7-cup square containers, all with lids. The lids snap to each other and the bases of the containers for easy storing, too. And if you need more room for leftovers, Walmart offers the Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids 28-Piece Food Storage Set for $12.97 with free site-to-store pick-up. (Shipping is also available for $1.97.) It comes with two additional 1/2-cup containers with lids. No room for the fruitcake? Consider storing it in the car trunk as a handy spare tire.
