A Day of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I assume most people are not at home sitting at their computers reading blogs today. But I am, so I thought....."why not write a post"?

As you know, Woody and I are at home today, just the two of us and we are making a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We slept in till 8am, had some tea and instead of going to the gym today (we've gone for the past 8 days straight) we decided to take a walk up to a restaurant we like for breakfast. I know, a bit unconventional to go out for breakfast on Thanksgiving, but we wanted something healthy to start the day and it was a good walk. We didn't make it to our destination because we were side tracked by a new restaurant that had a good crowd, good looking menu, and cheaper prices! I ended up having a great egg white omelet with spinach, a few potatoes (I dished the rest off my plate right away and gave to the waiter - I'd eat them all otherwise), whole wheat toast, a fruit salad, and coffee. The toast was standard diner toast, but the omelet and fruit salad were impressive. The clouds were clearing a bit on our walk home (1mile round trip) and breakfast was good, so it was a great way to start Thanksgiving!

My sister called as we were getting home, and I got to wish my little nephew Happy Thanksgiving as he 'helped' her clean! I'm looking forward to spending Christmas with them, my brother-in-law, and my parents. Even though it means we have to go to Minnesota! (just kidding!)

I've already made our stuffing (with whole wheat bread & apples!!) and about to start the turkey. Then mashed potatoes, Woody is in charge of the kale, and the cranberry sauce is easy (it's from a can!!).

It's great to have good food (and plenty of it) on Thanksgiving, but what is really important is to remember what we are thankful for. I have a lot to be thankful for this year, and every year really, because I am a very lucky woman.

Well, time to start the turkey! I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
