I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and some extra time off to spend with family and friends.
We had an easy, low key Thanksgiving. We started the day off by spontaneously deciding to run a local 5k Turkey Trot as a family. We had a great time and the kids surprised me with how much their endurance has improved. Of course, there was most definitely lots of whining and complaining during that 3.1 miles. They are six years old after all! I ran/walked mostly with my son as he took off at the start line. Ron stuck with our daughter. She ended up getting 3rd place in her age group. She was quite excited about that. Until she learned she didn’t get a prize for it. Boo!
Four days off from work, blogging and overall being lazy went by way too fast. But I had a great time so that’s all that matters. Edited to add: I just noticed that I titled this with the wrong date. Hahaha! I had my fill of turkey, mashed potatoes, roasted side dishes, dips and pumpkin pie. In fact, I made my first ever pumpkin pie. Actually it was a Pecan Streusel Pumpkin Pie with Maple Whipped Cream and it was ah.maz.ing. I used Frontier Co-op Vietnamese Cinnamon and I swear it takes every recipe to the next level. I will be making that again for sure.
Now it’s back to the regular grind. Or at least semi regular because the Holiday season is in full force now. I always say I’m going to start Christmas shopping in October so I’ll be done before Thanksgiving. Well guess what? It didn’t happen again this year. Lol!
A good place to start to make it feel like it’s back to normal eating is with meal planning.
