Belated (American) Thanksgiving Recap

Thanks for following along! Today I’m going to give a quick recap of my belated post of our (American) Thanksgiving meal! (With links to the previous posts in case you missed one)

Deviled Eggs

Delicious, but not for everyone. We had quite a few leftovers that we very much enjoyed the next few days.

Makes 24 servings (approximate cost: $0.17 per serving).

Roasted Potatoes with Fresh Thyme

Lesson learned: Potatoes oxidize. Don’t slice them the day before, they’ll look terrible when you finally get around to cooking them. Leave yourself enough time to slice and cook them while you’re cooking.

Makes 3 servings (approximate cost: $0.72 per serving).

Spicy Green Beans with Garlic

One of our favourite side dishes. Works great with fresh or frozen beans.

Makes 3 servings (approximate cost: $0.88 per serving).

Duck Breast with Port Reduction

Makes 3 servings (approximate cost: $11.60 per serving).


Though the meal wasn’t traditional for a Thanksgiving meal, it was enjoyed by all. Canadian Thanksgiving is about a month earlier, and a whole turkey is too much for three people, so we very much enjoyed our smaller meal. There were very few leftovers (a few deviled eggs and a taste of each potatoes and green beans).

Total cost: $43.68 (approximately)

Per person: $14.56 (approximately)
