Thanksgiving Dinner for Two

Thanksgiving Dinner for Two

This is day 13 of '15 days to Thanksgiving' and I am wrapping up my 15 days recipe feast tomorrow. Today, sharing with you few of my favorite Thanksgiving-Dinner-for-two meal options.

Sometimes, you wanna have great dinner at home for thanksgiving, but, do not want to work a lot! In such cases, I often set my oven to work!!! One of my favorite ways to pre-prep and keep everything ready, then just make my oven work like a chef for me ;).

I love when oven is doing most of the heavy work. No more perching on the stove with a spatula in hand! You will still have to assemble, pre-prep of course since we are talking about home-cooked meal not Stouffle's frozen entree ;).

I have included one homemade bread - Rosemary Focaccia, in the menu. If that seems like extra work for you, you can skip or buy bread from local bakery. But I have to stay, homemade bread will freeze pretty well. I am talking about making today and then enjoying for at-least two more weekday dinner nights. How does that sound?

The drink I have added is complimentary. Feel free to replace with a glass of good wine, or a drink of your choice.

This roasted dinner menu is perfect to serve 2-4 people. You can always serve two and keep two portions for the lunch next day!

Enjoy your easy thanksgiving dinner for two and happy cooking!

Peach and Almond Galette

My first introduction to "Galette" was in French Pastry Cafe, a few years ago. This french cafe made these gorgeous looking, free-form, flaky, and rustic fruit tarts with a thin layer of fruit on the top. I always loved'em for flaky and buttery crust - totally indulgent in taste, yet had fresh and sweet bi...

Penne al Forno

You might have made or seen lots of baked (al Forno) pasta recipes but this one is very special recipe from my kitchen. My little secret is home made white sauce and no cheese topping. Creamy white sauce made with just flour, butter and milk makes this pasta so creamy and delicious. I usually layer some c...

Basic Rosemary Focaccia Bread

I love Italian style breads, warm freshly baked, dusted with pink salt flakes, dipped in olive oil, herbs, and balsamic dipping sauce... Yum! Isn't it? (and I am enjoying a slice right now while posting this recipe). I have to admit that making bread at home is very satisfying experience and I often try va...

Roasted Red and Golden beets with walnuts crusted goat cheese and a refreshing dressing. The tang of goat cheese, crunchy roasted walnuts, sweet roasted beets makes this salad keep going for seconds. It is full of color and loaded with flavor. Gluten free, can be vegan. Also sharing tips on how to cook and...

Roasted Chicken alla Limoncello

When I planned to roast some chicken for Sunday supper, I added a twist on my favorite roasted lemon chicken with limoncello and orange marmalade, and buttery-aromatic fennel. Sweet of marmalade, fennel met savory spices and citrus with sharp notes of limencello........ The result was a savory, aromatic, s...

San Diego Mule

Mule cocktails are my favorite among mixed drinks category. I love the refreshing citrus with strong spicy hint of ginger in ginger beer. Mule cocktails became my favorite when I first had Moscow Mule in a local San Diego pub.For all mule cocktail fans, I am sharing my version of this ginger-citrus refresh...
