We were on our own for Thanksgiving. Both sons were out of town. My husband does not like turkey or sweet (honeyed) ham. I do love turkey.
We got 2lbs of peppered turkey breast, 2lbs of peppered ham, and 2lbs of peppered brisket. My husband LOVES brisket. We cut all the meat in 2 halves and put the second halves in the freezer for Christmas day.
I also got a frozen green bean casserole with red peppers and onion mixed in with a cheese sauce, and a frozen mashed cauliflower casserole. We also got pecan and pumpkin pies. That gave us enough food for Thanksgiving day and the whole weekend through Monday.
We thought about all that we were thankful for: the people who enrich our lives, our quiet lives, and all the support that God provides us every day. We have all we need and truly count our blessings.
Now, however, I need to focus on healthy living again. I am not weighing in. I got on the scale at the nephrologist on Monday, December 2nd, and my weight was the same as at my last weigh-in at home. So I guess I can also be thankful that all the indulging has not done too much damage. I may have gained back what I lost right before the holiday, but since I did not weigh myself then either, that is a moot point. So thankfulness it is. And some fresh motivation.
