We cooked. We ate. We had leftovers.
Sounds about right? Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This year our goal was to not go overboard with our menu and avoid having a freezer full of leftovers. Mission accomplished! We knew we would have fewer people than in previous years so we downsized the turkey... and how wonderful it was to brine and roast an eleven pound turkey! We scaled back the sides too; especially the fresh veggies. They just don't taste as good when reheated and that means it stays in the refrigerator while we pretend it's not eventually going in the trash.
And our other wins? No plastic plates, utensils or cups!! Well, it really wasn't difficult since we had less than ten people, but we're bragging about it anyway.
Now on to Christmas.....
