This year since it is just hubby and I we decided not to do the huge dinner thing. It doesn't help that hubby is not a real fan of turkey either. He will eat it just to make me happy but it isn't his favorite meal. I decided to let him have a meal he wants this year for Thanksgiving (he just doesn't know it yet.) I am going to make homemade pepperoni rolls and homemade pizza sauce for Thanksgiving.

I know my family in WV will be having a great big turkey dinner but this year our Thanksgiving is going to be Pepperoni Rolls.
I'm sorry. You two can make it a special day just for the two of you. I do understand, though. When you are used to having lots of family around on Holidays, it can definitely be a bummer when they aren't there. But I bet y'all will enjoy your day. Pepperoni rolls are awesome!

I haven't been 'home' for the holidays in 16 yrs, except for last year and that doesn't count food-wise cause I was too sick to get out of bed. My family has always cooked so much food that one long table would be a serving table / buffet. And another 2 long tables set for 20-30 people usually. Huge amount of food, lots of leftovers to divvy up! But for past 13 yrs, I've cooked more 'southern' type food for the holidays since that's what my hubby likes. He has to have: country ham, greens w/ vinegar, blk eyed peas or butter beans, green bean casserole, cornbread, sweet potato pie, pecan pie or cobbler, & sweet tea. Foods foreign to me till we met, lol. Except for cobbler.
Yeah, so no turkey. I love & really miss: roast turkey or pork roast, cranberry sauce (with berries & not canned), pineapple stuffing, potato salad, cucumber salad, 7 layer salad, asparagus w/ hollandaise, red &/or green cabbage, cheese ball, spinach dip, deviled eggs, glazed carrots, turnips, potato dumplings, spaetzle, diff types of bread & rolls. Yum! ...(Bread is my dad's specialty), pumpkin pie, cheesecake, German choc cake, apple strudel, baklava, & also various types of cookies. Every single dish / item always 100% homemade. My hubby turns his nose up at most of my family's recipes. So we just eat what he likes and I don't cook enough for much leftovers cause he won't eat leftovers. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I miss my Mom's homemade bread pudding with whipped heavy cream and her coconut cream pie!

We too are alone in Florida, all the family is up in NH.

Oh my!!! Reading this post just made my mouth water!!! So many great foods! Our Thanksgiving is just my immediate family, but I cook a lot, and we always have tons of leftovers.

Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

And to those of you who can't spend it with your family please don't be too sad,
what matters most is that you have a family to be thankful for. To me holidays
are always a little sad, because I miss family that passed, but I'm very thankful
for hubby and the dogs, even though he will work on Christmas and even though
we can't afford a big dinner or gifts, we have each other, that's all that matters.
Holidays are just calendar days, you know, if we can't celebrate it on one day,
what's stopping us from celebrating it on another?(whenever it is possible)
So cheer up friends, it'll all be ok! Just make sure to call your loved ones
and tell them they are loved and missed.
