thanksgiving recovery

Thanksgiving, the holiday of eating. It's no surprise that it has always been my favorite holiday. But because of J-Cat's surgery the other day and a difficult recovery, we've decided that a quiet Thanksgiving at home with the kitties would be the best for both of our psyches. It's been a long long long week...

But a Thanksgiving for 2 humans and 2 felines does not mean a couple of frozen turkey dinners. I'm doing my best to find that compromise between hitting all our favorites and not going overboard. So, here's the menu plan, and all of the new recipes will be posted in the coming days:

Roast Chicken with Lemons (Yeah, they don't make 3-lb turkeys. And, to be honest, neither of us really likes turkey anyway.)
Chicken Gravy
Classic Bread Stuffing
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Roasted Delicata Squash
Cranberry Cornbread
Fresh Cranberry Sauce with Golden Raisins
Nutmeg-Maple Cream Pie

What, is that too much for two?

Happy Thanksgiving to you both! And wishing a good recovery to J-Cat!

Your menu sounds amazing. I'm going to have a virtual piece of that pie...
