OMG I’m stuffed! I can barely move after eating a very filling and delicious Thanks Giving dinner.
Yes it’s Thanks Giving weekend here in Canada and it’s one of my favorite holidays. Hey .. any holiday where you get to eat turkey is a great one isn’t it? Yum!
Since it was just Chris and I for Thanks Giving dinner this evening I decided to cook a turkey breast rather than a whole turkey. While the turkey breast was roasting in the oven I made:
- Mashed potatoes – I always add a tablespoon of Herb and Garlic Philadelphia cream cheese to the mashed potatoes as it makes them delicious.
- Stuffing – I cheat and use Stove Top Stuffing. Hey it’s good!
- Cranberry Jelly – another cheat, I used canned.
The only thing we didn’t have was dessert. I haven’t been feeling all that well lately so I certainly wasn’t up to making a pie from scratch and I forgot to add a Pumpkin pie (and light whipped cream) to the grocery list. So no pie – no dessert. Oh well, at least that saves me from having to look up thebest weight loss pill after this meal … or does it! I sure am stuffed and I feel like I gained five pounds!
Nah! There’s no way I ate five pounds of food! It sure feels like it though!
I hope that all of my fellow Canadian visitors had a great Thanks Giving weekend and a great meal to top it off too! My U.S. friends will have to wait a few more weeks for their turkey!
