One knee, one burner Thanksgiving. This week on Public Radio, they ran an article about how two people cooked everything for the feast with four burners and a stove set to 400 degrees in one day. Big deal. I'm cooking mine at the moment with only one good knee, one working burner and an oven. (New stovetop is being shipped.) We're having turkey breast, fruit salad (a family requirement), stove top dressing, and a store bought pumpkin pie, olives and pickles plus two veggies that my son is cooking at his place. We're still thankful. Anybody else doing something different this year?

You win! But I'm having a grand time preparing the feast and trying to keep my vertigo at bay. Always fun. I just do as much as I can and rest and do some more. So far so good.

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to you also. Don't know if this qualifies but I've been on crutches for the past couple of months and cooking has been a challenge everyday but this turkey business and the prep has opened a whole new avenue for me. My stove has always had just two burners one large and one small as it's a counter top with a side grill.

Being in the UK its not something that I celebrate. Hope your family has a great time and you cope with the minimal kitchen and please what is the stove top dressing? My older daughter has invited us for Christmas and currently has a totally empty room where the kitchen was...(plus a harassed husband and phone calls to her dad asking questions as it was our house and they couldn't turn the water off at the mains the other day).

Stove Top Stuffing is a brand name and I used another brand, but it's dried, broken up bread with stuffing/dressing herbs that comes in a plastic bag. You take a pot and butter and cook your celery and onions, then add a can of chicken stock and bring to a boil. Then you cut the heat off and stir in your bag of bread crumbs and herbs. Voila! It was delish.
