These days my oncologist tells me to try to get at least 2400 calories a day. I haven't lost any more weight, but haven't gained either.
Where am I going with this? Oh, food! I love eating, but I don't consider myself a foodie. I rarely try new foods. I haven't been to too many fancy restaurants - although it's on my bucket list and my brother and his wife are helping me get out to a few. I haven't even been to a food truck yet!
Which brings me to Thanksgiving. I do love to sit down and examine what I am thankful for. I do love NFL football. But what I really love is being around good people and good food!!
I had a wonderful Thanksgiving - twice!! I had to make up for my poor appetite on Thanksgiving 2014. My first Thanksgiving was early, around 1pm at a dear friend's house. We had chicken, green bean casserole, crescent rolls, mashed potatoes and dessert. We ate on the couch. It was simple, and it was wonderful.
Later, around 6pm, I ate with my family. My talented sister in law had a beautiful table set up.
The Panthers were on TV. They served turkey, ham, stuffing, pecan crusted sweet potato pie, brussel sprouts with bacon, marshmallow topped sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, rolls, salad, macaroni and cheese balls, cranberry sauce, potatoes au gratin, and at least 3 other things I am forgetting. For dessert there was apple cheesecake, apple pie, chocolate pie and acorns.
It was not simple, but it was also wonderful.
I write about these details because I don't want to forget either meal!
What did you eat for Thanksgiving?
