Whenever Thanksgiving dinner comes to a close and I've eaten my fill of delicious turkey and sides, I wonder why the meal graces our table only once a year. When you're only cooking for 2 people the meal doesn't require the same pageantry, but it is still delicious. So what's my excuse?
Well, when Whole Foods had a sale on whole turkey breasts, I decided it was high time I realize my dream. On a particularly cloudy Monday I cooked up my turkey breast basted with my standard herb butter.
Roasted with carrots, potatoes, and green beans and served with gravy and a mushroom and onion bread pudding (stuffing stand-in) inspired by a guest post from Kathy.
The meal was just what I needed on a chilly spring day, and reminded me of one of my favorite holiday dinners.
As is the tradition, we enjoyed turkey sandwiches and leftovers for a few days - and we were thankful.
Tell me, what is your favorite holiday meal? Do you roast turkey after Thanksgiving?
