I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have so many posts lined up for you this week and so I wanted to get my Thanksgiving recap in before they all take over. Plus, I’m still in my Christmas pajamas, drinking coffee, and in the mood to blog before church.
I know you guys are probably getting sick of hearing about these oatmeal cream pies, but I made them again for the party!
Our friend Lyndsey made these incredible cute and delicious caramel latte cupcakes! She’s super talented.
These girls are the best 🙂 & trouble makers for sure.
I think Thanksgiving is Grumples favorite day of the year. He was up before me on Thanksgiving day, which is rare!
Coffee and the Macy’s day parade <3
He has this massive grill that could feed an entire restaurant. They don’t just make simple egg + bread french toast. They order specialty bread and then stuff it with apple cinnamon and cheese. It’s the craziest combination but the best tasting thing you’ll ever have for breakfast.
NOM NOM NOM.
Eggs and bacon for me! I tried to stay away from the carbs so I could be hungry for dinner. I did have a couple bites of the french toast. I couldn’t resist!
After breakfast, I needed to get out for some exercise. I took Grumples for a three mile walk .
I’ve never been a turkey person…but this turkey…was…out. of. this. WORLD! He infused it with all kinds of spices and apple seasoning. It was moist and juicy. I just wanted to eat the whole thing!
Pre dinner salad 🙂 The only veggies I was eating on Thanksgiving.
We had potatoes and gravy, eggplant parm, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, green bean casserole, corn, ham, and dinner rolls.
We headed to the movies to go see “Creed.” I HATE boxing or fighting movies. I don’t even watch the fights on T.V. I’ll close my eyes the entire time. It just makes me sick, BUT, this movie was actually really good.
The day after Thanksgiving is all about Christmas decorations!
I had a salad for lunch with leftover turkey and chunks of seafood tortellini on top.
After we decorated, I sat down to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes go 12-0! YEAH BABY!
Later in the evening, we all headed uptown to watch the Hornets play.
Phyllis and I had some delicious margaritas!
After the game, we headed to Fitzgerald for appetizers and then the Wine Bar in Baxter village. I’m OBSESSED with that wine bar. It has cute fire places outside and it’s adorable inside. Don’t order their bread because it’s soooooooo addicting. You won’t be able to put it down.
Now that almost all of my sickness symptoms are gone, it’s time to get back out there and run. I was a little nervous since it’s been a week and a half, but it ended up being one of the best runs ever. I felt AMAZING! Not an ache or pain at all. I think the break and all that turkey benefited me for sure. Plus, I need to get the two pounds I gained over the weekend to drop off.
Last night, I watched the Notre dame game and had some salad and pizza. Mainly salad 😉
Three questions for you!!
- Did you go black Friday shopping? If so, what deals did you snag?
- How was your Thanksgiving?
- What do you do with all of your Thanksgiving leftovers?
