Post Thanksgiving

Friday, November 27, 2020

Since there was only four of us, we broke with our usual traditional dinner. I proposed that we try some new things and had more of a southern style dinner. There was no pumpkin pie., no apple pie.

Yikes! I looked up the calories on the pie we did have, It was called a Scarlett Pie filled with pears, apples, figs and cranberries with a walnut crumb topping. It served six at 550 calories per serving. Say What???? Good thing I determined it could serve eight, but that still came in at 412 calories. What surprised me the most was my fellow diners did not mound their mealtime plates.
Yes I still over did it calories, but was not over stuffed. I'm still thinking about that pie.

I'm not that fond of trying to do all my Christmas shopping online. I find it takes me longer and get less exercise.

❤️ Grateful -
For a lovely Thanksgiving.
Heat and eat meals.
For all the workers at the grocery store.
For those workers that prepped and cooked our dinner.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying your weekend.
(Wonders when the Christmas Shopping season begins in Canada.)

    That pie sounds totally worth the calories!!

    And as for on-line Christmas shopping: I've done mine and spent less time AND less money: really paring it down this year. It seems to fit the tenor of the times . . .

    Belated Thanksgiving wishes! We also enjoyed a just the four of us celebration. Totally different menu. Kinda nice, missing turkey leftovers. Ha! Packing in earnest, the end is in sight. The timing of this wasn’t necessarily ours. Earlier retirement and Cobra medical cost of $1200 each month, for years, nudged us to a smaller place and mortgage. We cut it in half...along with insurance, taxes, utilities. We tried to push the closing here to after Christmas, but our buyer was adamant about closing on the 15th. Since she was willing to $10,000 above our list price and we sold the first day...well, we’re packing & moving. Tons of work. I’m almost giddy when I think about upkeep on a smaller place...then exhaustion sets in. Ha!

    Be well, wrapping you in hugs and too many good thoughts to count!
