Thanksgiving Festivities

I hope everyone had an absolutely wonderful thanksgiving! I did but, sadly, I did not take one picture the entire day. Beginning Wednesday, my mom, dad, 2 sisters, brother and I were all together at home. All of us being so scattered apart because of various education and work, this has become quite the rarity.

Wednesday night we enjoyed a nice family dinner

to which I contributed a spinach salad.

Featuring goat cheese, (I find it doesn’t bother me the way other dairy does) a white balsamic, olive oil and honey dressing, and of course pomegranate arils.

Saturday we all headed out the door around 7:15 to do a 5 mile Turkey Trot with, ya-know, over 17,000 other people. There were so many people there! It’s great to get out and get some exercise before being sedentary and eating too much; guess we’re not the only people who think that. We then spent the rest of the day with lots of family and watched A&M beat UT! Whoop!

All in all, a great thanksgiving; so much to be thankful for!

How was your thanksgiving?

Do you eat turkey on thanksgiving? If so, do you do it because you like it or because it’s tradition.

My family decided that next year we are NOT having turkey or the traditional thanksgiving fare since, while we enjoyed it yesterday, there are other foods we like much better.

Enjoy your Friday!
