|Turkey, Indian, Chef|
Thanksgiving week was filled with family food and fun. All of my children were home from college for the holiday. Thanksgiving morning started with a 5K Turkey Trot in downtown Orlando. We decided to run in costume this year and ended up with two pilgrims, a turkey, an Indian and a chef. The Trot was fun, although crowded. We planned on finishing all at the same time for a good photo finish, until my daughter, Caroline, decided she would bolt ahead at the very end to beat us all. She has done this to me once before and she fooled me again! Of course, she thought she was very clever.
This is an event that has become a family tradition and on a day of feasting, it makes you feel good to get some exercise in. We spent the rest of day, cooking then eating a delicious meal. Thanksgiving food is some of my favorite - I love stuffing the most. Our menu included: turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, spinach-broccoli casserole, homemade yeast rolls and pumpkin dump cake. There was a lot of food!
It's hard to believe that I woke up hungry the next morning, but I am glad I did. We headed to keke's, a local cafe, for breakfast.
We headed to the bowling lanes next. I can't remember the last time I hit the lanes and you could tell. It took all I had to earn a score of 99. My forearm was tired and I was a little sore the next day.
We spent the remainder of the weekend playing board games, Guitar Hero and hanging out.
I was sad to see it all end. I am so thankful for my family!
