Help Me Rock Thanksgiving for Two!

Good Questions

Q: Due to busy work schedules and out-of-town family, it looks like my husband and I will be having a Thanksgiving dinner alone this year. It seems silly to spend all day cooking a huge meal for two people, but we don't want the day to feel non-special.

Any suggestions on how to rock Thanksgiving for two?

Editor: We've looked at this from a couple angles already this Thanksgiving season (see: solo Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving for two in Tokyo), but we wanted to see if anyone had any good advice specifically for Sara.

Any thoughts?
