As we get closer and closer to Thanksgiving I started to wonder….. Should I make a traditional dinner for Frank and I or something a bit smaller since it is just the two of us. My decision??? I’m going with a few easy items:

3. Salad (you know we need something at least semi-veggie)
4. Pumpkin Pie with tons and tons of Cool Whip
While I will be cheating by buying the pumpkin pie and Cool Whip… well and I guess cheating with the fact that I’m also going to use a spiral cut ham that comes with its own glaze mix… plus ok I’ll give you a bagged salad mix and bottled salad dressing…. but I’m making the Macaroni and Cheese from the recipe I’ve linked to. So this means I’m cooking!!!
I’ve made the recipe before and had good luck with it so new tradition it is:
