Turkey for Two

Go forth children. Go forth and shop! While the stores are mobbed with the minions in their holiday shopping frenzy I’ll be home cooking a turkey. Yes…you heard that right…a turkey!

Since the two of us spend Thanksgiving with the neighbors we don’t have any leftovers. I know most folks dread leftovers but I love ’em. Yep! I love leftovers for turkey sandwiches, turkey tetrazzini, turkey casserole…even rendering that carcass into turkey stock. There’s nothing better than a turkey to give me an excuse to spend more time in the kitchen. So I’m cookin’ me a turkey!

While that turkey is cooking, if the weather permits, I’ll take the dog out for a run and maybe get the lights on the house. If not…I’ll watch some football…start decorating the house…maybe wrap a few gifts. Either way it will be a day spent in the spirit of the season.

The best part of the day will be sitting down to a cozy Thanksgiving dinner with Mark…just Mark. No neighbors, no family, no interruptions…just Mark.

This is our Thanksgiving dinner!
