Mind Over Matter. . .

Friday, November 26, 2010

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!!

    There were 9 of us ,including a family friend,
    We ate before 5 pm.Our friend helped with the turkey,he put bacon around
    the turkey so the turkey would taste moist,not dry.Came out delicious!
    We had mashed potatoes and gravy and there was corn on the cob that had to be used up!
    I made yams with brown sugar and marshmallows,turns out I was the only one
    eating it!My daughter made her green bean casserole!**Yummy**Plus,there was 2 different kinds of stuffing too.There were rolls and pies and ice cream!**We got stuffed!**
    And we sat around the table and prayed and also said what we were thankful for.

    I did good. I did have bigger portion for lunch but mostly had vegetables on my plate and white meat skinless chicken. It was so hard to eat only one piece of that sweet potato gooey butter cake but oh well. I'm still alive and didn't gain a pound from what I ate. It's good I didn't cook sweet potato pie. I was still in a birthday celebration mode but this is the Season that I love and I really appreciate EVERYTHING that Jesus did for us on that Cross! Thank You Jesus! You are a great mother and I know your food is always the bomb!! So I guess my son has a high metabolism too. Skinny self! lol
    Have a great Sunday!!!

    Hi Dee... sounds like you had a nice day... my son and I spent it together. I cooked 2 Cornish hens, sweet potatoes/apples & pecans, dressing & string bean casserole (...the recipe on the soup can) & garlic bread (homemade) for dessert we had sugar-free chocolate pudding/whipped cream... I didn't count any calories, I just tried to exercise portion control. Starting my program again this evening w/exercise!

    Have a wonderful weekend!... ~ Dee emoticon

    Great story, Dee!!! Happy holidays sweetie. How blessed we are. I had a lovely holiday too, having my loved ones over here. A pretty small celebration, only 10 people, lots of help so it worked out great. My niece lives far away; she was able to make it with her kids and new beau.
