Hey everybody! I’ve really enjoyed this 4 day weekend and it’s not over yet. Sunday’s always seem long and I love them.
Thanksgiving morning I woke up and did 6 miles on the treadmill. It was an AWESOME workout. I was sweating out of my elbows which I love. Then it was off to eat! I did good until dessert time 🙂 I really didn’t over eat dessert it’s just that my body isn’t used to real sugar anymore. I had banana pudding and pumpkin bread. Odd since there were brownies and dark chocolate chip cookies there as well. It was so nice to see my family especially my mom and sis.
Friday I was up early to check out online specials. You won’t find me out on Black Friday…EVER! I got my dad new pots and pans as requested. He is easy to shop for. I just say dad what do you need for Christmas. It’s either a hug, socks or something like that. This year it’s new pots and pans. I know he wants the Walmart version but I got something a little more sturdy. Mom wants a Shuffle(since she saw mine) or a decline bench with a leg extension(since she saw mine). I know these are things she wouldn’t use BUT I just think of all the stuff her and dad bought Rachel and I when we were little.
I’m addicted to this game: http://games.yahoo.com/game/text-twist
I made my first pumpkin pie. Of all the things my family forgot to make??? My mom made a pumpkin cake but Mike mentioned he didn’t have any pie so I made him one yesterday 🙂
Mike said this was the best pie he’s ever had! No, really..my hubs is VERY honest so if it wasn’t he wouldn’t have said anything. I’m pretty awesome when it comes to baking.
Recipe I used. It actually makes 2 pies.
I’m awesome unless i’m making my own recipes. Remember the Rotel Chicken? I made an Aprilized version. It was made with no salt added tomatoes, no sodium chicken broth and some Mrs. Dash seasoning. It’s still better than my broiled chicken breasts but it wasn’t the same 😉 Sodium rocks unless you have a body like mine and wake up looking swollen.
