A wonderful day with wonderful food

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 šŸ™‚

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.

  1. I’m so glad you liked the cupcakes! They are at the perfect sweetness level for me too, the icing on cupcakes is usually way too sweet that the cupcake itself gets overwhelmed. Happy belated T-day!

  2. ooo that pie is gorgeous! Thanks for the shout out!
