Easy Thanksgiving Dinner for Two

Thanksgiving Cornish Hen

Happy Thanksgiving!  Eric and I will be celebrating with my family, but from ages 18-25 I was single and on my own for Thanksgiving.  Sometimes I’d go to a restaurant with another single friend.  Sometimes I’d be invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with a friend and her husband.  A couple times I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for a few other single friends.  One thing everyone seemed to agree on was that there’s no point in cooking the HUGE Thanksgiving recipes for just 1-4 people.  It’s too much food, time, and expense.  So I thought I’d share a collection of recent recipes I’ve posted that are perfectly sized for a newlywed (or retired) couple, a few single friends, or cooking for yourself.  They’re also EXTREMELY affordable.  The entire meal you see below is under $5 a serving!

These are easy mashed potatoes and I will definitely be making them often.
