Happy Friday my lovely foodie friends!
This past week was a fun one for me. Even though we have struggled a bit with that awful cold that seems to be going around (it hangs on and doesn't want to go away!), Kevin and I had a "Mini Thanksgiving".
I have always hosted Thanksgiving at my house since, well since I can remember cooking Thanksgiving dinners! But this year my son's girlfriend's grandmother is going to host both families in her home, so I have been feeling a bit lost. That was when I decided to do a "Mini Thanksgiving".
Unfortunately the kids couldn't make it. Between being called in to work, and being sick, it ended up being just Kevin and I. But it was OK. We had a nice quiet "Thanksgiving" dinner, and a TON of Turkey sandwiches over the next few days.
I have posted a few of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes, with more to come. As well as some great ways to use up those turkey (and side dish) leftovers.
It was actually kind of nice to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for two. No stress, no hurry, just a kitchen that smelled wonderful and some great food. I may do it again!!
