I was going to make reservations for today and then no menu i researched got my atention at least not to pay over 40$ and also make me wait for a table, then the rush and everything i wanted to avoid.
With no shame I will admit I went to Whole Foods around 1pm, stopped by the buffet and served myself some Pulled Turkey, mushroom gravy, cheesy mashed potatoes, corn casserole, bites of Tofu, Sage Whole Wheat Stuffing, bought also a piece of Gruyere cheese and a Challah. To go I got a mini apple pie and vanilla ice cream so when I got home just watched Charlie Brown while whipping the cream to put on top of my oven-reheated Whole Foods Apple Pie.
I decided to take the afternoon to work on an old recipe and no regrets, a Mushroom-Chicken-Cream Cheese Empanadas that worked beautifully, it was worthy.
I'm curious for others like me with an unusual Thanksgiving Day experience.
Happy Thanksgiving Day.
