Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! For breakfast this morning I had a scone from Whole Foods, with some jam, chocolate dreams, and cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Steve picked up this scone a few days ago, and I'm not sure what flavor it was.

I also had a glass of light chocolate Silk soy milk.

After breakfast we went to the gym. I ran 4 miles on the treadmill and then did some bench press exercises. For lunch I had an individual packet of Annie's mac and cheese with some Morningstar crumbles and peas.

I didn't take pictures of the food I ate for dinner, but I did take some pictures of the preparation of the first Thanksgiving we hosted.
This morning I made a 100% Whole Wheat bread in my breadmaker. It was very good. I think I might see what other flavors of bread mix Bob's Red Mill makes.

This is my tofurky before it cooked in the slow cooker. Steve actually prepared all the additions (onions, carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, and some veggie broth).

Here are a few pictures of our dining room. I bought the napkins and placemats at Target and the tablecloth from Bed Bath and Beyond.

My mom brought this hummus. It was cranberry fig. She found it at Sam's Club and it was amazing!! If you can find this, I highly encourage you to try it. I'm sure it is just seasonal.

Vegetarians please shut your eyes.
Steve was very proud of his first turkey, so he made me take a picture. I have not eaten meat for 14 years, so I did not try this turkey. However, I am proud of the wonderful meal my husband made.

This is a little spread of snacks my mom brought with the hummus.

I made pumpkin pie (put I didn't take a picture) and apple crumble. This dessert had walnuts in it, so I may submit it as the BSI of the week. I'll post the recipe either way, but not tonight, I'm beat.

My husband also made an amazing vegetarian stuffing and mashed potatoes. Our friends brought an amazing salad with homemade dressing. I had one plate of dinner and some dessert. I also snacked on some chips and hummus before dinner.
I'm going to relax. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!
