This Thanksgiving was a little different but one that was a definitely good change. Each of our kids or their spouses prepared desserts &/or dishes to contribute to the family meal, so it was nice not to have to prepare an entire meal myself for a family of 18. We had deep fried turkey, roasted turkey & ham as well as all the fixings to go with it. I did well with limited myself to the high calorie dishes like dressing, potato salad & sweet potato casserole but also had a good amount of veggies like tomatoes, cukes, collards & butter beans as well as a taste of cranberry sauce. There was an assortment of desserts as well, but I did well in limiting myself to only a bit of a couple of different ones.
All in all, this was great dinner with family & much improved in my stacking on track compared to Thanksgiving a year ago.
