College kids coming home the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, but one has to head back to school Thursday evening (marching band, home football game on Thursday!). He didn't ask, sweet kid, but I'd like to give him the taste of Thanksgiving dinner which he loves Tuesday or Wednesday night, then send him back to school with leftovers. I'm thinking turkey breast, instead of a whole turkey, and I suppose just smaller portions of the usual sides.
Who has a fabulous way to prepare a turkey breast that would give me some drippings to make gravy? I suppose I'm also looking for advice on just scaling down the huge Thanksgiving spread for a regular weeknight meal for 5, keeping in mind that the rest of the family will have the huge dinner two nights later?
