Yes, not your traditional Thanksgiving dinner, smile! However, it is time to start thinking about a cozy Thanksgiving dinner for two people, that’s in case you had to cancel your family gathering this year (like us) simply because of COVID-19. It is all good, the cancellation means the whole family will stay safe and healthy for the whole Holiday Season. Instead, they will have individual cozy family celebrations in their own homes. Remember, there is always next year to make up for this. Smile! BONUS: This meal will take no time to cook.
