Your count is probably correct. I couldn't find anything online, but I can tell you that it is very high. Real Southern cooking is very rich and high in calories. Think Paula Dean pre diabetes announcement.
I went to Cracker Barrell, got their Thanksgiving dinner. I "banked" some calories and raced an 8k in the morning. I work out to a total of 2,500 calories (minimum) a week and I have a VERY physical job. So I get to eat between 1,500 and 1,800 calories a day. I did not find much nutrition info on Cracker Barrell but it looks like the estimate needs to be on the high side. I estimate that Thanksgiving plate, with the pie, to be 1,300 calories.
I went over with the Thanksgiving dinner, was very careful just to have a little bit of everything but the calories add up fast. But that s OK, 'cuz today I get back on track. I think its the first time I went over, had a little bit of flan and small pie.....it all adds up.
Today is another day, so not to worry. Surprising we may not have gained , just didn't loose.

Sadly, it can easily total a full days worth of calories.
I wouldn't stress about it too much. Start fresh tomorrow and get right back on the wagon :)
Hey, just wondering if anyone knows how many calories the Cracker Barrel thanksgiving dinner has, I've been trying to calculate it individually. But the count seems high for the meal. I mean it was my only meal today and I went over calorie intake!? So I'm wondering if someone has a figure I could compare mine to. I guess I could have taken some home, but it didn't seem like that much on the plate. Anyway, hope every one is having a great Thanksgiving.
