Well Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!! I hope your day went well!
Let's see, I have my whole family over! I'll go over the list:
My mom, Step dad, both Sisters and 2 nephews.
Sean's Sister, brother in-law and niece
Room mate and her cousin
Adoptive little brother
Sean's Friend Shawn.
This is plus, Me, Sean and my two kids... a grand total of : 17 peoples here to eat!
We had a crap load of food want to see??:
OK, so you wonder how does someone who just had this surgery cook and host a Thanksgiving dinner? I did it easy. I got up and cooked. I knew I couldn't eat 90% of what was being served, so I made sure what I could eat tasted great! I was in charge of the meat and potatoes! So we had Rosemary and Thyme turkey with honey/brown sugar ham. And garlic mashed potatoes.
I ate about 2oz of turkey and 2 oz of ham. (not at the same time....)And about 6bites of potatoes. So I had 3bites with each set of meat. I had about a good 45min between my "plates" and after2 hours I ate a small scoop of my "pudding pie" Sean made for me.
The pie was no sugar added French vanilla pudding and a graham cracker crust made with splenda. I was quite happy!
Here is all of us:
We had a great time and after all the fun I went out black Friday shopping to Toys R Us, Walmart, Target and back to walmart! I got everything I wanted, stuff for my mom too. So it was a all and all great Thanks giving!!!
We put up our tree now and start this holiday season!
OK, so just to also update you I'm down 25lbs since the surgery!
