I can't believe Thanksgiving is only two days away! B and I have both been traveling a lot in the past few months, so we decided to stay out west for the holiday this year. Since we have a football game to watch in the afternoon (hook 'em horns!), we decided to have a small Thanksgiving meal just the two of us (three, i guess, if you include Mack!), so I've been busy the past couple of days preparing a a menu and shopping for our "Thanksgiving for Two" meal.
Here's what's on the menu, and before you start asking your self how in the world we are ever going to eat this much, don't worry. I've halved all of the recipes, and have collected a few recipes to use up all the leftover turkey :)
Our "Thanksgiving for Two" Menu
Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip
Turkey with Homemade Gravy
(I'm doing a dry brine on the turkey and basting it with an herb butter)
Chorizo & Cornbread Dressing
Wild Rice with Mushrooms
Green Bean Casserole with Crispy Shallots
Sweet Potato Gratin
And, B is making an apple pie for dessert!
Yum. I'm getting hungry (and exhausted!) just looking at this menu! I'll let you know how everything turns out, and I'll post my favorite recipe!
How are you all spending your Thanksgiving, and what's on your menu?
