Thanksgiving Dinner (2017)

Thanksgiving dinner; roast turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce

Serves 2 (with leftovers)

We never let just the two of us prevent us from celebrating holidays with good food. And over the last 20 years food producers have been making it even easier for two people to have holiday dinners. As an example, you can now conveniently purchase parts of a turkey such as half breasts or thighs at any supermarket or butcher. It's no longer necessary to buy a 14 lb. turkey, if you can find one that small, for 2 people and suffer leftovers for the next two weeks.

And for those who don't even want the hassle of cooking (we have never felt that cooking was a hassle) you can purchase freshly prepared, complete Thanksgiving dinners from most large supermarkets, many even provide throw away plates and cutlery!

Over the years the amount of food that we make for holiday dinners have been getting smaller and smaller. There are three reasons for that. The first is that we don't eat as much as we used to. Second, we don't stuff ourselves to the point of bursting like we used to and third, we have gotten smarter in our old age, we don't dispose of as much food as we used to.
