We ended up ordering Thanksgiving dinner from a favorite local restaurant — picked it up today. Have to say, I am shocked at how stingy the portions are — it was billed as a Thanksgiving feast for two with plenty of leftovers for making turkey sandwiches, but there's only maybe 8oz of turkey in four slices. And though there are two desserts, the pumpkin pie is in what looks like an egg tart pan (maybe 3"?) and is somehow intended for sharing. I actually messaged them to make sure we had everything, I thought maybe something got mixed up.

I can't bear the thought of complaining given how hard things are for restaurants right now, but it's really making what I thought would be a nice treat (fancy meal! no cooking!) feel like yet another 2020 letdown.
