I’m really down with the cornish hens. There’s just something about eating a whole bird by yourself.
You really could go with a small turkey–leftovers are good. I’d say experiment with something. Spend the whole day cooking and having fun It’s cold out, nothing is open, no one is going anywhere. Open a bottle of red and cook your little brains out. Rent a Bogart movie. Have fun.
My family is doing Thanksgiving and Christmas all at once. (Yeah, I know, tell me about it). Why can’t we just have Thanksgiving at Thanksgiving, I ask, and deal with Christmas at Christmas? But I am just one person sans kiddies, so I have little say.
