Thanksgiving Day Eats

Happy weekend friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I am not one for Black Friday shopping at all, but I did score on a few online baby gear deals, and somehow, my husband and I did end up at the mall yesterday, not to shop, but to see the Hunger Games. I would say we sufficiently experienced the Black Friday buzz!

I wanted to recap my Thanksgiving Day eats because they were amazing. Remember how I told you I tend to get full really fast? Well that didn’t stop me from enjoying two Thanksgivings, one at my husband’s dad’s house and one at my sister’s! I was ridiculously full by the end of the night I could barely breathe. It was definitely worth it though!

Thanksgiving lunch at my father-in-law’s was delicious. I enjoyed all the veggie sides, including butternut squash, green bean casserole, turnip and cheese casserole, mashed potatoes, and vegetarian stuffing. I ate every bite and went back for more.

Now, at my sister’s later in the evening, I picked at a ton of different foods.  She put on quite the spread!  Her mother-in-law made samosas (potato turnovers), and I couldn’t resist snapping a pic of this one.  It looks like a turkey, right?

I also had some unpictured seven-layer dip, chips, and spanakopita.

The dinner buffet included roasted carrots,

And that’s just the vegetarian stuff!  Of course, there was turkey and stuffing.

While I don’t love to post pics of meat here on the blog, I couldn’t help but snap pics of my two nephews enjoying their drumsticks!

and lemon cookies!

I had a bit of everything, and by the end of the night, I thought I was going to explode!  I am sure Baby B enjoyed it though!

Yesterday, I kept my eats pretty simple (to fight the food hangover feeling), but today, I am back to feeling normal!  It was a great day, but honestly, I can’t wait until next year when there will be a special little peanut sitting at the table too!

What was the best food to cross your lips on Thanksgiving?
