Fun fact: Mackus invented stove top instant stuffing

I’m going out to dinner this year as well. Family is all over. Couldn’t get together for various reasons. It’s going to be...weird.

Did that last year it was, okay. I was skeptical. Doing it again this year too. When we have a larger family one day, or all our family is going to be together, we'll be hosting again because nothing beats all the homemade goodness. But for like four of us, it gets the job done.

Just finished dinner, escaped to the living room to watch the rest of the early game beside a wood burning fireplace at my folks house. Drinking some red wine. Might take a nap in a bit. Love this holiday.


History will repeat itself today.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Last year I smoked a 15lb bird and put an 11lb one in the crock pot.  The crock pot one was so much better.  

 

Throw a few slices of bacon on top, garlic salt and that's it.  I wish they made a 12 or 14qt pot so I could get a bigger turkey in there but its so good and so easy.  

 

Making a drink for the ladies this year called (no shit) wet pussy.  Its mostly vodka and peach schnapps, but also it has cranberry juice so its thanksgiving adjacent.  

 

I'll be sipping my apple/cinnamon infused whiskey.  Cheers mate.

So an odd Thanksgiving coming to be sure.  

Always a time to appreciate what you have, and those around you. 

Thank-you.

I’ll likely be completely alone all day. At least I’ll have the Ravens game. May cook up a turkey just for some semblance of normalcy.

Appreciate it but I’ll be fine. If a buddy has a small amount of people over and is watching the Ravens I may join

Just the 5 of us. If it doesn’t rain we might watch football in the neighbors driveway with a fire pit.

Menu (for two):

 

Baked turkey breast, oiled and seasoned "Scarborough Fair" style (plus a little garlic salt)

Mashed potatoes (not flakes)

Stuffing (technically dressing, I guess)

Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce

Mushroom gravy

Cranberry sauce

Sweet Hawaiian crescent rolls

Pumpkin pie

Pecan pie

Sparkling apple cider

Egg nog (non-alcoholic)

 

Maybe moonshine later?

 

I think that's it.

Wait, there's a "Holidays" thing now? Must have missed that. I wondered why there was no thread off which to tag.

Mega-upside to today - not having to drive around for six hours or have any hosting duties. Glorious. I'll take a pared-down number of side dishes for that.
