all will be home made, and it’s a ton of work. Hope to make the kids help this year.
There is just two of us at home this year. This is the first time in 20 years I haven't gone to help feed the less fortunate. It was a nice run.
Whole turkey breast stuffed underneath and under the flap. I made the stuffing from scratch yesterday. Four quarts of it. I buttered down and spiced the breast and then stuffed it this morning. Just popped it in the oven. Going to eat at 2:30pm.

Seriously, your menu sounds fabulous!
I'm back on my own for holidays now, so I ordered a family meal from Denny's which I will pick up after work today. I'll make a green bean casserole to go with it if I have all the stuff at home, and treat the dogs to a bite of whatever is safe for them.
I don't mind leftovers, so it won't go to waste.
Here's the menu
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
Definitely not a deep fried turkey:
turkey too. But I guarantee the chicken doesn’t last as long as the turkey, it always goes first.
