HAPPY (BELATED) THANKSGIVING!!!
I hope you all had a wonderful, food-filled and enjoyable day – mine was definitely (d) all of the above. It started out yesterday morning at 8am with a DELICIOUS bowl of Pumpkin Oatmeal!
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup water + 1/3 cup organic skim milk
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
drizzle of agave
cinnamon, nutmeg + ginger
small handful almonds + walnuts
sprinkle of Kashi GoLean Crunch
1 small spoonful PB
The best part? I got Mama Everythingtarian hooked on pumpkin oatmeal. Turkey day success.
The rest of the morning looked a little something like this…
A lil’ Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, cookin’ Paula Deen-style with sticks of buttah, lunch (Mary’s crack, hummus, Italian veggies, cottage cheese, carrots + sunflower seed salad along with apples + PB) and setting the Thanksgiving table (which was done by sissy #4).
Then at 5:30pm, we sat down to feast!!!
Here is my plate of goodness…
glass of organic malbec
sweet potatoes (with brown sugar + mallows)
green bean casserole
Sissy #3’s homemade Pumpkin Bread
Twas’ the perfect amount of food (plus a couple more bites of stuffing + GB casserole + yams). The fam cleaned up quick, watched “The Office” (repeat of Jim + Pam’s wedding = LOVE) then played more games.
We are a game-playing family…today’s face-off: CRANIUM!!!!
Post-win para moi, we all enjoyed dessert. Believe it or not, I don’t love pumpkin pie. Which in theory, makes no sense. I heart pumpkin. For some reason though, I don’t love the pie form. However, I do J’ADORE my mom’s apple crisp. So that it was…Apple Crisp with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!
Then we parked it back on the couch to watch Love Actually. I actually LOVE that movie :).
So…what am I thankful for on this holiday?
More than anything, these crazy people who happen to be my family and who I happen to love very, very much.
