Thanksgiving Meal for 2-4 persons

Everything made from scratch except the pumpkin pie which I bought at Sprouts.  This was about 5 lb. worth of turkey breast and it is good for 2-4 persons (4-6 persons in our case).  Cranberries sauce for my girls and cranberries salsa for me.  Creamy mashed potatoes top with melted Kerrygold butter and chopped scallions.  My banana oats buns and easy crunchy green beans.  Turkey gravy, short-cut method (turkey dripping, chicken stock and thicken with potato starch).

Nothing beat the moist and juicy turkey with gravy!  This was my first ever Thanksgiving turkey meal, I never did the whole meal before, just baked a turkey before but that turkey had the turkey smell that I disliked.  I am not sure whether it is just the breast this time instead of the whole turkey or in the brine I added ginger and then when baking I added lemon in the cavity or what, but this roasted turkey breast didn't have the turkey smell.

Thanksgiving meal for 2-4 persons is not hard at all, took me under 4 hours without help.  Turkey breast is the way to go for small family.
