Have a blessed and thankful Thanksgiving, everyone!

Thursday, November 28, 2013

We had ours a day early, due to family conflicts with Ron's daughter. I'll still be cooking a turkey breast for us, today. It was very nice to go with her. I did eat turkey and green beans, and made a nice pumpkin mousse that was sugarless, grainless and organic. Ron and Raud and I ate it. The grandson was nice enough to say he liked it, but they did have real pie, after all, and I can't compete with that! Not trying to. But I thought it came out really good and I don't feel deprived at all, tonight.

The crust was mostly almonds. The mousse was chia and greek yogurt, molasses and stevia, and pumpkin. I was pretty pleased, considering.
The hard part is missing my sister and our holiday breakfasts of leftovers the morning after. Now that was our celebration. We'd have quite a hen fest and it would go late, with lots of turkey and stuffing and gravy. Most of all, I miss her friendship. I'm so very thankful for the blessing of having her in my life.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, and all of your family and loved ones!

Or Happy Thansgivukkah, if you celebrate Hannukah. Have a blessed holiday!

    Jinx... you have echoed feelings of many of us who will be missing loved ones' faces at the gatherings this year. We have gratitude that they were IN our lives, even while we miss them deeply!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving, and glad you had a good day-early family event!

    That really looks good, Sue. I am glad you had a good time together. I miss my sister, too. This is my first Thanksgiving without her. I have been so sad this week, just thinking about her. Her son is cooking Thanksgiving dinner for their family this year. They live three states away. It is just my husband and me. We have been busy making things that are tasty, but low calorie. Looking forward to our meal. I want to do a fancy table just for the two of us. Hugs!
