Today I'm having company over for lunch and making my ever-popular Baked Ziti with Roasted Vegetables and a couple of loaves of French bread.
I've been trying to cook more meals in lieu of going out, but the one meal that I just don't feel like making this year is Thanksgiving dinner.
Last year I cooked a huge dinner and spent the better part of two days baking, cooking and cleaning. All that effort was for five people.
I have some wonderful Thanksgiving recipes. Here's the booklet, in case you'd like to peruse them. I'll definitely get my Thanksgiving mojo back someday, but I'm just not feeling it this year.
Instead, I think we should just go out somewhere. You can find a perfectly good Thanksgiving meal at lots of different places and get every dish you could possibly want without having to wash a single pot or pan.
Then I can just make a nice pumpkin pie or two to have around the house.
What are you planning for Thanksgiving dinner this year?
