So Good Day Sparkfam! Its a sunny but brisk day here in Chicago & no Black Friday for the kid, I stayed in & cooked a decent size breakfast. Now its back to reality after having to cook p a storm for the last 3days but I actually didn't feel rushed like I normally do. That's why I started early like my mom used to do. She baked cakes & pies all weekend. Then do stuffing, yamilo, greens & potato salad. I would prepared the ham Wednesday night & the turkey would bake Thursday morning. So I have been cookin since Tuesday baking pies, stuffing & then did greens & more yams on Wednesday. I baked the ham, chicken thighs & made the macaroni & cheese Thursday morning while hubby deep fried the turkey. I wanted to eat around 3pm but I ended up making pancakes & bacon for breakfast. We were starving but I wanted to wait until dinner time but no dice. So we ate at 5pm. Then we laid around & then around 7pm got ready to go to my daughter. We got in my car first but it was sounding so bad we turned around & drove my hubby's car. We almost didn't go but I know she was feeling melancholy today & wanted to cheer her up. So she was so happy to have us she made plates for us. UGH!! I had a good size plate & was feeling really decent by the time I got to her place but how could I disappoint my baby. So I woman up & ate the plate, it was definitely mind over matter. So we left around 11pm when most people were doing their clean up we were still visiting. lol But my boys can eat a ton of food they have a high metabolism not like this old broad. lol I still got a turkey bump going on from stuffing cake & sweet potato pie. I need some Red Vines to get me away from all of this senseless eating. I need some sweets & BAD!!!! S.O.S.
So what do you eat yesterday or today that it was a mind of matter situation?!!
God bless & TGIF!!
