Thanksgiving is a very special day for me, and it’s probably my favorite holiday of the year. We celebrate Thanksgiving pretty much the same way every year, and that’s just how I like it. 🙂 Nothing brings me more joy than getting together with my Florida family (and I sure miss my Texas family!), cooking, laughing, telling stories and sharing a great meal. This day always serves as a reminder of what’s really important in my life, and to not take those things for granted.
Today I’m roasting a huge 26-pound turkey, and I’m also making the stuffing, biscuits, gravy and mashed potatoes. Last night Lisa made what looks like an absolutely delicious cheesecake with a homemade crust, and she also whipped up her famous gourmet cranberries. Lisa’s parents are bringing red wine, which we will certainly put to good use. 🙂
Have a great day! Oh, and if you’re stressing about eating too much or blowing your diet, stop it. It’s one day. Enjoy.
