Just because you maybe a family of two or three doesn’t mean you can’t have a nice thanksgiving dinner. Once we moved away from our family it was only my husband and myself for thanksgiving and I didn’t feel like cooking a huge turkey for you the two of us. I was lucky to find out they had split turkey breast so it was perfect for just our size family. Try out our apple cider turkey gravy and herb bread dressing to go along with your dinner.
