Now, I'm looking for ideas for a Thanksgiving feast for just one or two...I'll be spending T-day with my mother, while the rest of my family runs off to various points north and south!

You could still do the "traditional," just downsize it. Get a turkey breast instead of an entire turkey, or even turkey filets. Maybe have an untraditional dessert (i.e., not pumpkin pie) that you and your mother both like.

And wine.  ;D

Unless you have to drive afterward. ...  :-\

So far, what I've seen of the American family Thanksgiving tradition is the Del Mars, the Twists, and this one.....   

Maybe I shouldn't be so sorry we don't have T-giving in Sweden.....   ::)    ;D

I'm guessing you don't have deep-fried turkey, either. That's something to be thankful for!  ;D

Or...a Turducken!

Turducken
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A turducken is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed into a de-boned turkey. The word turducken is a portmanteau of turkey, duck, and chicken or hen.

Those are some good ideas, friend! I'm going with a slightly nontraditional dessert...I'm making mincemeat pie, from scratch! We'll have a whole turkey, though, since the leftovers freeze well and are so economical right now. I'm also contacting our church to see if there are any single people who'd like to come join us.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Mince pie is good. Don't forget to add a little brandy before you warm it up to serve it.  8)

That's a lovely idea! Happy Thanksgiving!
