Have yourself a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Last year Offbeat Homie BobbityBets and her newlywed partner had what they called a "Charlie Brown Thanksgiving."

This is our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. We couldn't afford to fly home from South Carolina to California to be with family and couldn't afford a major feast either, so we did our Thanksgiving Charlie Brown-style! It was a sweet way to start our lifetime of holiday celebrations together.

So, like the Peanuts gang in A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, they dined on this amazing menu:

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving 3

  • Two slices of buttered toast
  • Pretzel sticks
  • A handful of popcorn
  • And jelly beans!

Now THAT is a Megan-simple Thanksgiving meal. I'm totally keeping this on the back-burner for the year my chef friends get sick of me mooching off their amazing Thanksgiving meals.

Also, have a happy Thanksgiving no matter where you are, who you are (or are not) with, and whatever you're nomming on.
