Thanksgiving Dinner

Hey everyone! I’m back for round 2. After I posted this morning I made one heck of a wicked breakfast; 100_6572

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sunrise blend with quinoa
  • cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • currants
  • cashew butter
  • maple flakes


This was SO good….dessert-like, really.

After visiting out at the farm, we came home to a quick lunch. I made a sandwich with a WW Arnold Thin, Monterey Jack cheese, the last of the ambercup squash and a 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters. On the side was the apple that I didn’t eat yesterday with cinnamon sprinkled on; 100_6574

Then I baked up some Pumpkin Coconut Chocolate Chip Bars; 100_6575

These bars are stellar and VERY easy to make!

I spent the afternoon watching a cheesy cheerleading movie with DD before getting ready to head over to my parents place for dinner. As usual, Mom put on a great Thanksgiving Day spread. Here’s my plate; 100_6577

Turkey & gravy, sausage stuffing, a WW bun with some butter, sweet potatoes and pecan green beans. DS ploughed through a turkey leg. The bone was as big as his forearm! 100_6578

Dessert was a beautiful piece of pumpkin pie with a dollop of Cool Whip on top; 100_6581

This is pretty much what I looked like after eating all this food; 100_6580

That’s my parents ancient cat, Sinjin. She’s something like 17yrs old!

I had a small piece of my Green & Blacks Maya chocolate bar when we got home, but that’s it for tonight. The Amazing Race just finished and I think I’ll watch Criminal Minds before hitting the sack. Here’s to hoping you all had a lovely Sunday!

Bye for now!!
