I am very happy to report a most successful Thanksgiving holiday experience. I had the opportunity to celebrate twice. Once on Thursday and the following Saturday.
Thursday I went to my youngest sister’s house to celebrate with her and another sister’s family. The house was full of my lovely nieces and nephews. Most of all I was able to visit with my mother that resides with one of my sisters.
We enjoyed feasting on deep fried Turkey and Ham. Of course all the usual suspects where there. HA! Yes I did make a couple for the occasion. Why? Why ask why!
I played a little one on one basket ball with one of my older nephews. How did I do. Well considering I have not thrown a hoop in over 20 years ………….. well let’s just say I got stomped! Hahahaha!!!!!
All in all I had a great time and look forward to spending more time with my family during Christmas.
Now let me see. Yes! I did mention a second Thanks giving celebration. I sure did. This time it was at my house. Poor Dear Wife had to work on Thanksgiving Day. So like a good hubby I planned a celebration on that following Saturday. I cook a traditional oven roasted Turkey slathered in butter and herbs. Which herbs? Well I am pretty easy. So I just used rosemary and thyme. Oh yeah some kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Yes, and some traditional sides like: cornbread dressing, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole and a homemade Macadamia White Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake. Ohhh almost forgot the rolls and cranberry chutney.
Yes I can make these things and not be tempted. This is what the “real world” eats and it is what it is. I never plan on not making these things in the future. Unless that is my whole household turns Zero Carb. Let me tellya: It Isn’t Happening. Not in my lifetime. No Sir. No Sir Indeed!
Anyhow we had a guest from out of the country and I picked up my Mom. Everyone raved about the food and we all had a great time.
Our out of the country guest and his wife stayed the night and the next day treated us to breakfast. I found a nice little restaurant nearby and enjoyed an 8 oz flatiron steak with three over easy eggs with a side of bacon. The meal was not bad considering that the steak was overcook. Flatiron steak is very forgiving when overcooked. It is still pretty tender. It has to do with the cut of beef.
Good food, Great company………… what more could I want?
Have a great (ZC) Day my Zero Carb Friends and Family. Live Long, Stay Strong and Always Battle On!!!
