For me, Thanksgiving dinner varies by the year, since sometimes I eat with others, and sometimes alone. I usually cook an entire holiday meal regardless, even if I eat elsewhere, so that I can eat leftovers for days. Sometimes I will buy a whole turkey and cook it, and other times I will cook just a turkey breast, but turkey is always on the menu. This year, I purchased a turkey breast. I've got that and a squash. I'll be making stuffing and already have the cranberry sauce, which I never made from scratch. I do use Craisins in other things, but I've never cooked cranberries from scratch. I'm also going to make some sort of rolls and mashed potatoes and gravy, but I'll wait to make the gravy until after the meat is cooked, because I'll be making it from scratch. Is there a particular menu you prepare every year? Do you cook the meal yourself? If so, do you have help? Does someone else do the cooking? It doesn't feel like the holidays if I don't do at least some of the cooking and have leftovers to enjoy in the ensuing days.
