I truly had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. It was definitely the most different thanksgiving I’ve ever had since I was away from my family, but it was good nonetheless. I got to spend the day with my amazing boyfriend and his wonderful family. We had our feast around 2:00 and munched the rest of the day. At first I was skeptical of this idea, I didn’t know if I’d be in the mood to eat “dinner” food in the afternoon, but being prepared that it was going to be a mid-day feast I was more than ready by the time the food was served. Everything was delicious and then I had the rest of the day to relax, digest, and eat some desserts 🙂
The pictures above are my baking creations. The top left is a very ugly apple pie that I made for Chris just using a traditional, non-healthy recipe. I have been dying to make these cupcakes ever since I saw them on Peanut Butter Boy’s site, and so I thought why not make them for thanksgiving? They aren’t very traditional, but they combine my three favorite foods ever: banana, peanut butter, & chocolate, so they were heaven in my eyes. They turned out delicious in my opinion, not too sweet which is just how I wanted them.
I’m happy to say I think I did really well yesterday. It is the first thanksgiving since I’ve been at my final goal weight and I’m happy to say that I did not overdue it to the point of sickness. I enjoyed the holiday and treated myself, but not to the point of being ill- yay!
Well I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving & we all have a TON to be thankful for. I feel so lucky and have so much to be grateful for, and I was really thinking about it yesterday.
Now I’m in the mood for Christmas, woo hoo! It is probably madness out there today on black Friday, but hopefully the store I work at won’t be too insane by the time I work (4:00). It probably still will be though.
