I did actually sleep in this morning. Until 3:30am with the cat lying on my chest.
I put the turkey brine that had finally cooled down to room temperature in the fridge. I'll be brining it tonight. I had a little breakfast and did a little cleaning.
Then I did some circuit training.. Jari Love Get Ripped 1000 (because you're supposed to be able to burn up to 1000 calories and hour...yeah...right). It was a pretty good workout and I did sweat a lot, but only burned about 250 calories according to my heart rate monitor. I think part of the problem is they get the actual calories burned performing the strength exercises while the heart rate monitor can't do that.
I baked the Sparkling Cranberry Gems in a fall shapes cookie pan. The first batch I didn't put enough dough in the spaces so they didn't get very good shapes. The second batch worked much better:
For dinner tonight we'll be having some salmon burgers with sweet potato waffle fries and whatever vegetable I pull out of the freezer.
Tomorrow, after I do my day 2 of B210K, starts the real cooking: stuffing, gravy, turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes. It should be fine, I've got helpers (no, not the cat...she's not very helpful).
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
