I love Thanksgiving, probably for a different reason than most. Our Thanksgiving is almost always spent just the two of us although some years we've also participated in Meals on Wheels. It's so nice to enjoy the day cooking, seeing movies, and this year we can even take a walk on the beach. We spend Thanksgiving alone because the very next month is Christmas and that's when we'll be flying home to the COLD midwest crossing our fingers it doesn't snow or ice us into spending the night at the airport.
We usually cook OUR Thanksgiving favorites and always include turkey, dressing, corn, pototoes and gravy, and green bean casserole. Don't forget the canned cranberry sauce and pumpkin or pecan pie. Sounds like an awful lot for two now that I typed it out! We usually are eating leftovers for two weeks.
What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? Is it a recipe/dish, seeing relatives, or even the booze & football?
Also, if you have a favorite recipe that you think might go with a more coastal/southern Turkey Day that you could share I'd love to try it out!
