Moderately


Wednesday, November 27, 2013

My daughter had plans to go elsewhere for Thanksgiving dinner. However, the dinner changed into a brunch because of work schedules of some of the people involved. So then my daughter and grandkids had no plans for a turkey dinner. What could I do? Well, I guess there are lots of things I could do, but I decided to make the turkey dinner. It will be a small gathering. My niece is cooking for her in-laws so my sister and a lot of family are going there.

In the past I've written about cooking BIG and eating moderately. This year it will be more cooking moderately and, I hope, eating moderately, too!

I'm thankful I can do it!!!

And moderation is the spice of life (or was it variety- I like moderation because that lets you do, try, taste, experience anything- but in moderation.)

    And I am sure you will make it the healthiest dinner they have ever had, using Sparkpeople's smart substitutions for popular dishes (love the cauliflower for mashed potatoes, that is so radical)
Enjoy your surprise evening with family!

    Guess this whole week has been about "being there" for others! You are a fairy godmother, Marsha... and you have the wings to prove it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    The words "Thanksgiving" and "moderation" are used together much in America, but WE can do it! Ha!

    emoticon What a wonderful event, Thanksgiving at gramma's! A healthy one, too. How wonderful that you have the skills to make it about connection with people and not numbing out with food! Exquisite gift to a mother of children not to have to prepare Thanksgiving alone so the kids can have the experience. It just all sounds wonderful.
