Buy a flower arrangement from the grocery store. Amazing what some beautiful flowers can do to add a bit of cheer.

Reminders of what is simple, beautiful and pure. How incredible Creation is. The little things that often go unnoticed. Allow yourself to truly enjoy them.

I'll just put the Flower Arrangement channel on Pluto TV and look at it for a while.

G, your menu sounds good, except for the mashed potatoes which is my favorite comfort food.

Homemade is so worth the minor extra effort.

For one person, just a large baking potato will suffice.

Just peel the skin, chop into cubes and boil for about 15 minutes until fork soft/tender.

Mash and mix with melted butter, maybe a little warm milk, salt and pepper. Add sour cream, bacon bits, cheese, anything that appeals to you.

Holidays alone can be a gift. You have the space you need to reflect and receive messages from god.

why do people keep saying how easy it to make mashed potatoes...but then have a giant list of all the shit you have to go through to make them...

...and then after all that work, I have to hope I did it right.

Cook the weed in butter and then add the butter to your potatoes. Best potatoes for Thanksgiving solo style.

I can't even remember the last time I had turkey.
was probably 15 years ago, maybe more
 Quoting: QCluminati


wow? nothing at all for Thanksgiving day?
Or just don't like turkey?
 Quoting: Gypo O'Leary


I'm sick of turkey, and would rather have chicken.
Going to the ex's house for dinner. I wish I could meet
a nice senior woman that would like to start some new traditions.

Re: I Live alone and have no friends - Thanksgiving Style
This is a fact I deal with.

For example, I don't think I've said anything to another person since Saturday morning.

Anyway...I'm thinking of buying a turkey, cooking it, just for myself.

On Wednesday, I would make a cheesecake from scratch for myself.
Then on Thursday, I will
-Julienne some green beans, and make a mushroom gbean casserole.
-make some dinner rolls from those pull apart cardboard things
-Mike Evans mashed potatoes that I can microwave
-stuff and dress a smaller 5-7lbs Turkey and cook it in an electric roaster.

I bought a 12 dollar bottle of Hungarian white wine that I will drink.

I will watch football games alone.

I don't have much to give thanks for...but I believe in maintaining my dignity as I go to the grave.
 Quoting: Gypo O'Leary



Thanksgiving at 12:01am I will drive to work and work til 7am.
I will then drive home and try and get some food in me (probably left over tacos) and try and get some sleep only to wake up Thanksgiving afternoon and drive back into work at 6pm to work the rest of Thanksgiving Evening into Friday morning at 7am. Rinse and repeat Friday and Saturday.

Be thankful you're able to enjoy a peaceful day off and what sounds to be like a fine meal.

I'm envious.

You have much to be thankful for. You have a roof over your head and plenty of food and clothing. You have peace. You really could get some friends but you choose not to. And that’s ok. Make sure you look nice also. Make a big effort. You are your own best friend really.

Find a local bar that does Thanksgiving. Lots of folks in your situation will be there. I moved to a city by myself and I did this. Found some frens.

i thought that was more families heading out to a restaurant meal, but i'll look into it.
