I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Good luck to all the Turkey trotters out there racing today – what a great, healthy way to start off a day of indulgence!
I’m headed to Maine today to celebrate with my boyfriend and his family. Ian’s been raving about how good of a Thanksgiving meal his Mom cooks for quite some time, so I’m really looking forward to a great meal! I’m blessed with a lot of great things, but am most thankful for all the amazing people I have in my life.
Today will actually be my second Thanksgiving this year. A group of friends that live in the area decided we should do a “friends Thanksgiving” ahead of time so we could celebrate together before everyone headed off in different directions on the actual holiday. The food was amazing – check out the spread in the pic! We went with most of the traditional staples for dinner, and dessert consisted of pecan pie, pumpkin cheesecake and a peanut butter pie.
It was a great get-together and fun to get in the spirit ahead of time. We also lucked out and got to enjoy a mid-60s November day on our Thanksgiving allowing us to hang out with beers on the back deck – not a usual Thanksgiving occurrence, especially for someone who grew up in Syracuse!
