This year we decided to have thanksgiving meal in our home. A very simple meal just the few of us. Our menu for this year thanksgiving:
I was going to brine my turkey but I didn't take it out of the freezer earlier to do so. This time all I did was season my turkey with Salt, Pepper and Lemon Pepper Seasoning then I put chunks of butter between the skin and the meat.
I forgot to buy cranberry and had to make Uncle R to get it front he store
Corn from the can
Also store bought
I'm really proud of my gravy, I usually use gravy from the bottle but this time I actually made it from scratch! I got the oil from the turkey dripping and warmed it up in a pot. Then I added about 1/4 cup of flour (I think is a table spoon of oil to a tablespoon of flour) stir it then add homemade chicken stock. stir until thicken.
Aunt L makes really good stuffing but aunt L was not here for thanksgiving so Uncle R made the stuffing which was really good with breakfast sausage
Stuffing that I made with the liver and gizzards from the turkey which was actually pretty good.
Homemade pumpkin pie
This year I didn't make most of my food from scratch like I would like too. Never the less I was able to make a lot of food even with a 5.5 month old baby at home!
Thank you hubs for cleaning and doing the dishes when we were done. Thank You Uncle R for celebrating a low key thanksgiving with us.
