As a child my family took turns hosting Thanksgiving with my Connecticut cousins. It was a big cacophony of a holiday and I hated every minute. These days my sisters and mother are a bit far-flung (London, Doha, and Naples, Florida), however, I am okay to be celebrating with just my own family unit this year.
Simple is the motto today. I am using a turkey recipe from the NYT’s, making only a little bit of stuffing (none of us really want or need it), and an apple crumble in lieu of a pie.
Tomorrow and this weekend we will see friends and start the holiday swirl, so, I’m thankful that today it’s just us.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
