Well hello! I hope that anyone and everyone who is reading this is pleasantly stuffed and has had a wonderful time with family and friends. We had a really nice dinner this evening, as usual. Instead of saying what we were thankful for this year, my dad asked what everyone's last meal would be. They were pretty interesting! I said sushi if I was going out, and if I was making it myself, probably sweet potato, tofu and chocolate. I don't know if that's truly what I'd want, but that's the first thing that came to my head.
Mommy Dearest holding my Jack on the rocks:
The Thanksgiving table:
Crudité, one cracker with three cheeses (sharp cheddar, roquefort, camembert), and an olive that I ate before taking this:
I've decided to throw my vanity to the wind and post only horrible pictures of me. But everyone else looks very nice!
Judy oh so skillfully carving the turkey:
From left to right: sticky bun, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, vegetarian stuffing, steamed green beans, Georgie D's famous mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce (that I mixed with pretty much everything). Missing is corn pudding, that I added right after the picture was taken.
Seconds on Brussels sprouts:
The pie spread! Pecans, maple cream, punkin'.
I had two little slivers of pie: pecan and maple cream. I cut the top crusts off; with a regular sized piece of pie, you can shave off about 100 calories by chopping off the crust. I ended up having three little pieces, so that probably equaled out to a normal sized piece.
Another sliver of pecan... I don't know what it is, I never used to like this! It's Ari's favorite, so maybe that's why I enjoy it now.
Daddy-o and George:
The Thanksgiving gang. I don't know what's going on with my sassy smile, but this was the only one that turned out.
I'm pooped! Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekends!
