Well it's Thanksgiving this weekend in Canada and the challenge is to not overeat and overindulge.
To be honest even though my folks come to visit and it's just the three of us, sometimes it feels like I have more company than that. We went to Kelsey's Friday night after i was done work. I ate half a chicken quesadilla and half the dish of fried pita wedges with warm spinach dip. The rest came home.
And today, we had weiner wraps and pumpkin tarts. Tonight we're having turkey breast with no gravy (much to my consternation - I really don't care for turkey without gravy - it's not one of my favourite meats). We're skipping the bread that we normally have and since we're not having mashed potatoes (winces) and having rice instead...
But my main thought is regarding the tarts. I have to have mom's pumpkin pie. Extremely rich and oh so good. But this year I asked her to make tarts instead of pies.
It helps with storing them more easily in the freezer and have a grab and go dessert and it also keeps portion size down. Tart are a little smaller than a wedge of pie and if I have my way with pumpkin pie it's always a big wedge.
So fellow Canucks who are single but spending it with someone, you can still do it and come out just fine :)
