I really enjoyed our dinner, a mix of gourmet new things my adult children tried, and the traditional turkey, crescent rolls, etc. With so many vegetarians in the family, it's tricky, but they made some wonderful crepes for a main dish, a delicious mushroom gravy that made me not even miss meat gravy, four different vegetables...
Even dressing, which I did, is easy to make vegetarian and it came out really well. It's Amelia Bedelia style cooking...a little of this and a little of that. One of them said "The dressing is amazing!" I'm glad they liked it.
So what does all this have to do with losing weight? I ate just enough to feel good, and no more. No stuffed feelings this year! But I enjoyed a big feast of flavors and textures!
God has truly blessed us this Thanksgiving, and I am grateful for the time with all my family.
