Wowee! Is it me or did this 4 day weekend fly by? Between volunteering, Turkey Trot, and eating too much I am ready to get back into the grind. Don’t get me wrong, I love holidays but by the end of the weekend it seems like I overdid myself and need some reality in my life. This including a good workout. I woke up today feeling a little under the weather, but am determined to pump myself with some wheatgrass shots, vitamins, and lots of hot tea. I will NOT get sick! Here are some pictures from my Thanksgiving. As always, it was a great time cooking, chatting and enjoying time with family. There was an excess of veggies (obviously)- my cousin made the coconut shrimp, and a delicious butternut squash/quinoa dish (recipe to come). I made a beet salad, veggie saute, mushroom gravy, brussel sprouts annnnd pumpkin cheesecake. It was amazing. Believe it or not, there was even a Turkey! I hope you all had a great holiday, ate too much and are ready to get back into Monday! Another opportunity for a great week.
It’s already Friday! I feel like this week flew by- and before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving! The weather people are forecasting some rain for the weekend which means boots, scarves and sweaters. My Favorite – not to mention it’s about time! Fall has finally arrived in California. I will be celebrating a friends birthday tomorrow, and I also need to figure out what I am making/eating on Thanksgiving. I do know that I will be making some delicious made from scratch Pumpkin Cheesecake for the fam bam. Definitely not on the newtritionsavvy side- but well worth it for Thanksgiving day! (See- I do splurge once in a while). Hope you all have a great weekend..get a workout in, cook, bake and simply take a second to relax. You deserve it! See you Monday.
