I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and had a lovely time spent with family and loved ones. Now it is DETOX time!!! I am so turkey-ed out. I don’t think I can eat turkey for another year!!! Oh that’s right, I have a whole year until more turkey. Thank goodness!!!
I spent my Thursday cooking all morning for just little ole me and my Hubz. I made the turkey from last weekend and had that refrigerated. But then I added on spicy sausage stuffing with apples and cranberries, a black bean & corn salad, my Hubz made his famous mashed potatoes and I made my pumpkin cheesecake again. We each had one helping of a Thanksgiving meal for lunch! Then everything had to go into the fridge as leftovers. In the evening, we ventured off to my family’s restaurant and spent time there with my siblings and my dad. We ate Japanese BBQ which is a far cry from a traditional Thanksgiving. In fact, my dad didn’t even sit at our table, he was too busy discussing shop-talk about the restaurant. My mom wasn’t in town either. Another sister was away as well. Actually, this is pretty typical of my family so no big deal.
Friday was spent vegematating. On Saturday, my friend and I made some awesome Holiday treats that I always try to make each year to give away to friends. In the past, I’ve made Cinnamon Buns, Cookies and more cookies. This year is a little special and fun! But it’s a surprise!!!
Then in the evening, the UCLA football team got creamed by USC. FIGHT ON!!! Poor UCLA might as well not have played at all. Waste of time and energy. Tsk tsk.
And on Sunday, my friend and I watched……..BREAKING DAWN. I know, I’m a fan, but I’m not a twi-hard fan. Seriously, I’m not! And that Twilight themed party I had last year was forced upon me by another friend! LOL I had no choice!
Overall, it was a great weekend!!!
Okay, enough of the small talk. Let’s get to the winners!!!
