Thanksgiving preparations are extra easy this year. For Thanksgiving, it's just me and my sister--she doesn't really like turkey, so we're having chicken pot pie instead and the recipe I use is the best when it's frozen first, so I made the mini pot pies a few weeks ago and just have to pop them in the oven. We have a tradition of crockpot meals for Thanksgiving, so I'm trying a new crockpot mac and cheese recipe that requires minimal effort. All that leaves for me to do tomorrow is some easy bacon asparagus wraps.
I got turkey toys for Barley, Rye, and their cousin Maddux and we thought we were all set. Then our friends at Chewy.com sent us a package of Merrick's Thanksgiving Day Dinner! Now that Foster Pup Sal is in his forever home, wet food is just a special treat here--and I can't think of a better occasion for a special treat than Thanksgiving.
Rye isn't a picky eater, but she's a distracted eater, so I let her be our official taste tester for these cans ahead of time. Rye likes her food, but if Soth walks by the room or a car starts outside or I open a door or she catches sight of a toy, she'll wander away from her bowl mid-meal to play instead.
Thanksgiving Day Dinner has great ingredients like Deboned Turkey, Turkey Broth, Chicken, Sweet Potato, Carrots, Green Beans, Apples, and Peas to name a few--lots of great fall ingredients (and a little overlap to what my sister and I will be eating in pot pie!).
Rye was happy to dig in when I offered her a spoonful, so I think she's going to be thrilled when she sees some on top of her breakfast tomorrow morning. Barley and Maddux live to eat, so I know they'll be happy with a little something special later in the day, too.
We hope that all of you have a day filled with family and good food! Happy Thanksgiving!
