I just won’t be bothered with cooking and carving a turkey when it’s just the two of us. And Mrs J won’t eat much. I made a lot of a few things because that’s how I tend. My gravy this year was killer and was plenty for today but I’ll be looking for more before I eat my way to the bottom of the dressing pan. I also made a jumbo pan of green bean casserole because we like it just fine.
You can tell it’s a holiday dinner because I put the sides into proper serving dishes rather than leaving them in the pans they cooked in, the mac ‘n cheese notwithstanding. I think the dressing needed a touch more liquid and the green beans a tad less. The sticky sweet potatoes were just right, as was the cranberry sauce.
