With Chris having to work today, I decided to cook us a mini-feast yesterday. I figured it would be nice to prepare my first turkey when there weren't any guests or real pressure to make it perfect, and it turns out making Thanksgiving dinner isn't that hard.
I'll admit, I did cheat a little on the cranberry sauce and rolls (both pre-made), and since it was just the two of us I only made the staples. But it all tasted "just like Mom makes."
We're both so thankful for our wonderful family and friends and wish everyone a great turkey day. Hopefully, in some small way, seeing us here enjoying our own Thanksgiving dinner will make it feel like we're there with all of you!
I used to sit in the cube behind you. Then I didn't. And then we fell in love.
