The Holiday food damage control has yet to begin.
My favorite is stuffing with lots of gravy followed by the sweet potatoes. I'm not a huge fan of the marshmallows on top of potatoes, so I try to dig deep to avoid that. I also skipped the roll for a second helping of my two favorites. I do like turkey but it's all about the stuffing for me.
We had three pies. The kid each made a pie, Celina a chocolate praline pie and Logan made pumpkin. Claudette made the sweet potato which is always my favorite. If I had to choose between pie and stuffing and could only have one, I'd take the stuffing. Its so good, I already ate my lunch of gravy and stuffing at 10am.
Good thing I made it to the gym on Thanksgiving morning. I ran 6 miles and it took forever! It was also a lot harder to do then I recall. Back to starting over on the cross ramp with pumping it back up to where I left off on the incline and resistance. I'm almost there.
I was up super early at 4am and by 6am I was headed out the door for some Early Bird Black Friday shopping. Old Navy, Walmart and Kohls. Three hours later I headed for home. I had no plan in mind for shopping but got a few good deals. Found some gifts to get a start on Christmas shopping. I even found myself some leggings, a holiday shiny tank top, 3 pairs of earning and a new gray sweater. I definitely could go back to bed now that I'm full of stuffing.
We have enough snow to do some cross country skiing. I'm doing to do a little more shopping with the kids first, then I'm heading out to ski for my exercise today. No running or the gym. Just going to enjoy the change of exercise.
I also wanted to share a good healthy lunch I made yesterday. I wanted to try broccoli slaw and knew it would be good with some lite ranch dressing. I tried to go easy on the dressing since that's where the calories add up. It's 25 calories for 1-1/2 cups of the slaw, 80 calories for 2 Table spoons of lite ranch dressing. Delicious and a good option to eat for a side or main meal.
