Only make what you like. AND you can eat in your jammies!!
Not in my jammies, but an old beat up comfy hoodie and jeans. Lol
The turkey will be done around 3.
Stuffing, gravy, Brussels sprouts, cranberry salad and pumpkin pie.
I considered making deviled eggs this morning but nahhh.
Caught some of the parade.
Talked to the kids and grandies.
They've all had a change of plans too.
Jeff is at his friend Jon's place to eat and watch football.
Ty and his fiancee and the girls are sticking close to home as her Mother is at Toledo hospital on a vent with covid.

Ironman, love the looks of that salad!!

We don't eat until the evening, around 7:00. I've got the special dishes out, the table set and ice packs on the breast of the fresh Butterball turkey. Made the stuffing yesterday. Green beans are blanched, mushrooms sauteed in butter, and those two things will be reheated, tossed together, and topped with the fried onion rings (essentially a green bean casserole without the gunky mushroom soup). "Simply potatoes" (IMO, every bit as good as homemade). I'll make gravy from the turkey drippings, one of the very few times I ever make gravy. Relishes are the traditional olives, celery and cranberry jelly. If anyone wants dessert (no one ever does), I made Toll House cookies.

Tables and dishes look lovely, everyone!

Doc, you could have fed a neighborhood! I suspect Peep could have, too!

Thank you.
You always say that. I don't make that much. Lots of variety in small amounts. I actually only make enough for dinner and one additional meal for 4 people. If there is any turkey left I make some soup. This year I had a pretty small turkey. I only saved the breast, legs and wings. The rest went out, we don't like thighs and I made stock from a couple roasted wings before Thanksgiving, so I don't need the bones. Not many leftovers.
