|The veggies draining.|
I have such a small kitchen now they had to be
relegated to the sink area for awhile.
After speaking to my parents, I thought to myself, "What should I do for Thanksgiving?" Last year, I had dinner with a friend at a popular restaurant close to where I live. This year, I thought of doing nothing, but then I decided to try to cook myself Thanksgiving dinner.
I buy a rotisserie chicken to eat over the course of 7-10 days every time I go to the grocery store, so I decided to save some of it for Thanksgiving in place of turkey. I bought instant pumpkin soup as clam chowder imported from America costs more than I wanted to pay. I decided I needed some veggies, so I bought a can of beets and a can of mixed veggies, rinsed the can water out, mixed the two, boiled them for a little while, then voila! - a vegetable side-dish.
However, there was one major component I wasn't sure I could pull off. One thing I missed a lot last year and started to miss again this year when I realized Thanksgiving was around the corner was my mom's amazing stuffing!
