Gobble Gobble!

So why, one might ask, would someone go to all the trouble of making all of this...


...for just the two of us? (Dudes, I made the cranberry sauce. I even used real pumpkin for the pie!)

(Though in the interest of full disclosure, I bought frozen pie shells. Even I have my limits. And pie pastry hates me.)

Anyway. Back to the issue at hand. Why would one go through all that effort - not to mention dirty dishes - for 2 people?

This is why:



Toast with chicken and gravy. The ultimate in left-over comfort food. And it's raining today, and I made this for my lunch while cooking up a vat of chicken stock. A holiday Monday just doesn't get much better than that! (Well, in the fall, anyway. I can think of better things to be doing in the summer, involving gin, tonic, and a lake, to start...but for the fall, this will do quite nicely!)

I've also got a couple more wee knitting projects finished up, but no pics for you, sorry to say. My baby sis reminded me that family members young and not-so-young alike visit here on a regular basis, and let's be honest - at this point, the knitting's for Christmas. No point in posting spoilers!

Back to work-a-day life tomorrow. And the election, of course. Is it just me, or does this one seem kind of blase? I could wax all philosophical about it - and just may, tomorrow, if the mood strikes. All the options being as gimpy as they are, though, I don't know that it wouldn't just be a bitch-fest. Which isn't where I want to spend my energy today!

Happy Turkey Day!

(Though really, that would be just as appropriate tomorrow...sigh!)

I've made fab Thanksgiving dinners for two before - it's definitely worth it. Though there was one Thanksgiving where we were supposed to travel, weather prevented it, and the smallest turkey I could find was nearly 16 pounds. 2 people and 16 pounds of turkey. And 2 pies. We ate well for ages!

looks SMASHING! and I agree the turkey buns are the real reason why...

What if I promise not to look?

Nom.

You should stop that. I'm hungry.

I love toast and gravy. And my kids all gag when I eat it. Glad to know there is someone in the world besides my mother and I that love it!
