Yesterday was the big turkey day. I cooked turkey, dressing, mashed potatos, gravy, cranberries, yams, red cabbage salad (hot) brussel sprouts, brocolli, salad, fresh buns and we bought pumpkin pie. But I can truly say I ate turkey, brussel sprouts, red cabbage, salad and two ryvita crackers with a bit of cottage cheese on them and an orange for dessert. Wow! the pride I feel carries a lot of momentum. I want to feel that again, Everyone looked stunned after supper and the guys fell asleep. I cleaned up and was trying to get a rumoli game going but it was a bust. No problem, I was finally able to get some time alone and read. It had been a good day for exercise as well because there was a lot of work involved with all that cooking and I put the screws in three sheets of tin as well. Every time someone would try to get me to join in the big eating fest I would say"I signed a contract" and it was true. Charlie also was supportive in this as I kind of read him the riot act about helping me fulfill my obligation to the local clinic. All in all it was a good day. What I missed the most if anything was the cranberry sauce. I do love turkey heaped with cranerry sauce. Usually I just cook them with splenda and eat them with a good conscience but I had put sugar in them because of others so I left them alone. It was okay!!!!
