Such as it is here. Got the Butterball Turkey thawing, went to the grocery store again today to get the rest of the meal. I panicked a bit because I couldn't find my gravy recipe that I used last year that we liked. Despite living in Saudi Arabia we will have a traditional American Thanksgiving BUT made healthier and using portion control for me at least.
Butterball Turkey roasted
Stuffing/dressing made with whole wheat bread and vegetables
Herbed Turkey gravy that is diabetic friendly
baked plain sweet potatoes
carrots with orange sauce
Peas and pearl onions
home made from scratch cranberry sauce
Ginger Peaches in sugar free jello
Whatever dishes our friend brings.
I didn't get much exercise time in today, I had to go sit at our friends house and wait for maineinence to come to fix the broken a/c. I gave up waiting after an hour and went home. Called back in the afternoon and had to go back over there while it was fixed. Then cleaned up here a bit and got dishes out, food prep lined up, table cloth on, decorations arranged then went and zoomed through the grocery store again.
Wednesday we also have to go to another friends house and clean it out. He left on emergency in August and won't be back. so go through and get his personal stuff to ship back and sell what is left. I looked through a few odds and ends he had which wasn't much, brought home a knife, 2 cup coffee pot, a couple of pans and a cat toy that our boy kitty now loves.
i will get in plenty of exercise on Wednesday running back and forth baking and rockin' to my tunes while I cook.
