Although I have to admit, my daughter cooked 90% of the meal! Oh JOY! Can you believe it? A daughter who can make an entire Thanksgiving dinner including 2 homemade pumpkin pies and cranberry sauce from scratch - meaning she started with berries and sugar. A truly proud moment in a mother's life!
And today, well today we are feasting on variations of turkey, which will inevitably answer the yearly question of "Turkey is so delicious, why don't we make it more often?" that is always posed as hungry feasters savor their first bite of turkey and stuffing.
Two days later, as one sits at the morning breakfast table pondering the turkey omelet, that sits on the table in front of us, we nod our heads in understanding and mutter... "Oh Yeah, That's Why"
***On another note, I have been scouring the Internet and all of the Black Friday sales hoping to find the perfect bargain on 1 pair skis, 2 snowboards, some cross country skis or maybe snowshoes, and all the boots, poles, gloves and other paraphernalia that one needs in the snow. This year will be our first winter in our little cabin in the mountains, and the winter activities are an integral part of my 2008 diet plan. Did you know that cross country skiing burns up to 800 calories an hour? Size 8 (OK 10) here I come!
***On a final note, one of the reasons I have not yet found even a pair of ear muffs, is that I was distracted my email which kept turning up even more fabulous offers for things that were not 1 pair skis, 2 snowboards, some cross country skis or maybe snowshoes, or all the boots, poles, gloves and other paraphernalia that one needs in the snow.
One of the offers that kept me busy for an hour and a half was this EXTRA 50% Off + $2.99 shipping coupon (coupon code: FRIENDS77 ) from Designer Linens Outlet. You can either sign up for the newsletter and get the code, or just use mine! Pretty awesome deal if you ask me!
The other offers were from my favorite designer rag site Yoox, they have some fun offers: Free Shipping, an Extra 20% Off and the ubiquitous Holiday Gift Guide.
Don't spend all your money today though, because after Black Friday comes Cyber Monday...that's when it's time to roll up your sleeves and get serious.
