    Thanksgiving Alone

    Just wanted to give a shoutout to all those people doing the whole Thanksgiving thing alone! I'll be joining you this year.

    On my list:
    • Find a newspaper to checkout which Black Friday stuff I'm gonna buy for myself (already got the gifts I'm giving, thank you Finish Line)
    • Attempt to finish a 1.5 liter bottle of wine by myself
    • Play GTA5
    • Cook my Thanksgiving Dinner for one: Roasted Turkey Thigh with a Baked Potato and Green Beans
    • Watch Football


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 0-2 - .000

    9/22/18 & 9/7/19
    Akron and Iowa State
    CAN'T WAIT!

    Re: Thanksgiving Alone

    You should have bought yourself a pumpkin pie! It's not about the turkey, or the family, or football; it's all about the pie. Just saying!

    Re: Thanksgiving Alone

    I've spent one Thanksgiving alone....I was sick; I sent my kids & their dad off to a friend's place for Thanksgiving, and I made myself chicken noodle soup. Somehow, I think your Thanksgiving alone will pass better than mine did. I hope the games are good ones (video AND football).

    Making myself a pie! Specifically trying to mimic the one I made over the summer that turned out fantastic:

    Re: Thanksgiving Alone

    Been there for several years. I prefered the Gobble Gobble (Wild Turkey) to wine, but its all the same. Have a good one.

    Re: Thanksgiving Alone

    On the Thanksgivings I spend alone, I usually like to work on my Christmas cards, so I can spend a little time with the people I care most about.

    Re: Thanksgiving Alone

    I am alone too. Well not exactly, after 2 hours of mingling with family, I snuck away downstairs and am by myself watching some football with a glass of wine. I assume this will be the best part of my day.
