Thanksgiving for Two

So…Thanksgiving this year… I have Thursday and Friday off, Mr. T only has Thursday off. My family is getting together on Saturday to do Thanksgiving. No clue about Mr. T’s family. If they aren’t doing anything on Thanksgiving day…I’d still like to have a Thanksgiving dinner!

I stumbled across this article from BuzzFeed: 24 Perfect Thanksgiving Recipes For Two. They aren’t all my cup of tea, but there are some potential winners in there…

To keep things simple I’d probably just do canned green beans. Mr. T has his favorite brand that nothing else ever comes close to besting, anyway, so that will make my life easier. I don’t think we’d need anything else. When there are a lot of people bringing a lot of different foods I tend to get little tastes of lots of things…when it’s just two people eating I hate to make a lot because so much gets wasted. I hate leftovers. I’ll eat them! But I don’t have to like it. 8P

Oh, and dessert… Honestly, I’d say frozen cobbler and ice cream. Easy peasy, AND delicious!
