Our Thanksgiving this year was pretty uneventful- to say the least.

We usually host a big crowd of family and friends- and this year- it just so happened that everyone had somewhere else to be.

So just the 3 of us for Thanksgiving.

We were lazy.

We didn't even plan.

Not. one. single. plan.

Well- I take that back. We did decide on a menu and went to the store and got all of our food to cook.

But that was about it.

We woke up Thursday morning- had breakfast. Sat on the couch. Played in our PJs. Relaxed.

It was actually pretty nice.

Then when we got ready- we put on actual clothes and started cooking up our feast. Even though it was just the 3 of us- we still cooked like everyone was coming over.

Turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole, green chili cheesy potatoes, collard green, rolls, cheesy green bean bake, gravy and cranberry sauce, pumpkin roll and chocolate banana bread pudding. We don't mess around.


I even forgot to take pictures of everything. But here is our turkey cooking.

That's the Big Easy- it's a oil- less turkey fryer. Cooks infrared- or some sci-fi stuff like that. Weird right? but ohhhh sooo good!

And K helped us make dessert- by cleaning the mixing bowls

and then we put on our comfy clothes- snuggled up on the couch- watched Megamind- and did nothing. It was great.

We will be all nice and rested to have everyone back in the house next year!
