After our recent relocation to the West Coast, MP and I had decided not to take the trip back East for the Thanksgiving holiday. As a result, we opted to have our own Thanksgiving (just the two of us) here in Santa Clara. Last Sunday we did all our shopping and the menu looked something like this:
Turkey, of course
Darlene’s Crockpot Stuffing®
Sweet Potato Mash
and MP’s favorite — Hot Rolls.
Apple Pie w/ Vanilla Ice Cream
Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream
With the exception of a minor snafu with the Turkey (not knowing how long to cook it for, and without a meat thermometer things got a little dicey), everything went according to plan. After all was said and done, the dinner table was set and everything was delicious. Looking at the picture, it’s hard to imagine that all this food was for just two people — but it was. And boy do we have leftovers.
I guess that’s what Thanksgiving is for, though, right? More Thanksgiving photos
