One Pot Thanksgiving

In a small NYC kitchen, it's not easy to prepare a big Thanksgiving meal. And they sure don't breed turkeys for two - I simply cannot store all the leftovers in a small 22 inch fridge.

This year I elected to do a small chicken, but not in the oven. Bird, stuffing, gravy, and even a few dried cranberries all go in the crock pot and cook for 6-7 hours on low.

Because I can't not mess with a recipe, I've made some changes. I've doubled the amount of stuffing (and everything that goes into it) because I want the cooker to be 1/2 to 2/3 full - that's how they work best. I like one pot meals, but don't often make them. GF loves mashies, so I'll cook those up separately with some asparagus on the side.

So in 7 hours or so we'll know whether we're ordering Indian food instead of having chicken.
