Thanksgiving Dinner For Two By Homemade In The Kitchen
From Sarah : I have only recently discovered tis blog. It’s not a new one, just new to me.
Hi there! I’m Carla, a 30-some single woman learning how to adult alone. No kids, no boyfriend/husband/boy toy. Just me. Which means I can eat what I want (like leftover Chinese food for breakfast) and never have to share my food.
You’re probably wondering why I’m talking about recipes for two. Truth is I’m lazy and eat the leftovers for lunch the next day #keepingitreal. Currently I live in Pittsburgh where I was born and raised. Follow me on @citylifeadventures to get a better look at the city I call home.
Not hosting a huge Thanksgiving this year? You’re in luck because here is your ultimate guide to Thanksgiving Dinner For Two! Menu includes recipes for two and small batch recipes of your favorite Thanksgiving dish.
Everyone deserves a plate of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and gravy for the holidays.
I got you. I’ve been scaling down recipes for years. And it’s about time I put it all together as a comprehensive menu for cooking Thanksgiving For Two.
This isn’t meant to be a full menu; rather, I’m giving you choices to pick and choose. It’s like one of those build your own adventures books but with food!
Thanksgiving dinner is practically synonymous with turkey, but when it’s only two of you, roasting a whole turkey is way too much food; the smallest whole turkey is about 10 pounds if you’re lucky.
However you can still have your turkey and eat it too by serving smaller pieces, such as turkey breast, turkey legs, or even turkey wings.
Love the presentation of roasting a whole bird complete with stuffing? Cook a Cornish hen, which are much smaller. One hen is plenty for two people, although if you have your heart set on leftover chicken salad, you can always roast two.
This is only the beginning. Check the post out.
