    Just curious because I'm sitting here waiting for some of Thanksgiving Dinner to digest so that I can go eat some more, lol. But for the past 9 months I've been really healthy and lost a lot of weight, so this Thanksgiving has made me realize how much I mess but old stuff, but at the same time how much I don't like it now that I'm not used to it--that might not make sense but you now what I mean.

    But anyway, this is what I had:

    Turkey
    Cornbread Stuffing
    Jellied Cranberry Sauce
    Crescent Rolls
    1 Broccoli Floret and 1 Cauliflower Floret (gotta say I had my veggies, haha)
    Apple Pie


    What about you guys??

    Vegetarian pizza.

    I had "thanksgiving dinner" on the 17th (a Mexican holiday): turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and numerous other side dishes at an English teachers potluck.

    My uncle took me, my boyfriend and aunt to a chinese restaurant. We had chicken, tofu and flat noodle. It was so good but then my bf got headache from the MSG icon_smile.gif

    That was our thanksgiving dinner.

    Deep fried turkey, ham, tamales, potatos, sweet potatoes, rolls, stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce... even more I can't remember. oh, and I brought the pumpkin cheesecake.

    I love Thanksgiving because its one of the few times of the year I cook purely out of pleasure and since I cook it all I never overeat, because frankly, after all that work the last thing you want to do is eat it. LOL

    Anyway, here is my menu:

    Maple Butter Glazed Turkey
    Apple-Sausage Stuffing
    Sweet Potato Souffle
    Garlic-Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes
    Broccoli in Cheese Sauce
    Roasted Carrots with Parmesan Cheese
    Rolls
    Cranberry Sauce
    Pumpkin Pie
    Apple-Pecan Tart

    My guests loved it.

    Gym early tomorrow morning to work off these calories.

    Far too much.

    Turkey
    garlic mashed potatoes
    stuffing
    ?? a Finnish rutabaga dish
    stewed carrots
    green beans and bacon
    gravy
    cranberry sauce
    rolls, appetizers, wine
    pecan/apple pie ala mode

    Everyone has left and I've just loaded the second dishwasher load.
    I'm afraid that if I try to bend my body in any way, it might burst from the pressure.

    OK - the list may make you question this - but I actually stayed in my calorie limits today. Here's the list of dishes I made (though I didn't have both of the pies):

    Turkey
    Cranberry Walnut Stuffing
    Parmesan Chestnut Spinach
    Sweet Potatoes
    Cranberry Sauce (with apples, oranges, and basil)
    Devilled Eggs
    Gravy
    Pumpking Apple Butter Pie
    German Chocolate Pie

    I ate a bit of everything; turkey, mashed tators & gravy, tuna cass, gr. bean cass, stuffing, rolls, veggies, candied yams, apple pie, and pumpkin cheesecake. I'm pretty sure that I'm forgetting about a dish or two though.

    If you're smart, you'll reach those suckers down a little lower and give me something nice to think about. icon_redface.gif

    Lets just say there was a lot of food, I hate a lot of food, and just like I said before

    "I'll end up passed on on the living room floor as rest of family watches a movie"

    It happens ever year and everyone knew it would happen again.

    my sister cooked the food this year, it was her first time cooking for thanksgiving. I patted her on her prago belly to thank her for the food.

    about a hundred thousand bajillion calories- i feel like a fatass. icon_sad.gif
    everything was hand-made from scratch- highest quality ingredients- family's full of great cooks so i couldn't resist anything, and it doesn't help that i have the inhuman ability to keep eating ad infinum if i set myself to the task...

    apetizers during the day:
    cheese and crackers, pinaple macadamia dip, jumbo shrimp, dark chocolate non-parells, lttle mini hotdog things, asorted fruit, wine, and my weight in mulled apple cider lol...

    the entrees:
    turkey (dark meat) with gravy, corn pudding, sweet potatoes, cornbread with butter, grandmom's polish sauerkraut with brown sugar and fried bacon, more wine.... there was a lot more to choose from but i just filled up on my favorites lol...

    dessert:
    hot pumpkin pie with cold whipped cream, key-lime pie, and this pumpkin dessert i can't describe with nuts in it. and coffee.

    now im in a food coma..........

    For breakfast my boyfriend made me eggs, toast, oj, and sausages.

    Dinner was cold ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes/gravy, vegetables, and rolls. I only had one plate. Small stomach.

    Then pecan pie for dessert.

    And lots of wine and beer.

    Yum. No food coma this year. Then we watched Sordid Lives

    I fixed myself a 3-egg, onion, mushroom, sausage and smoked cheddar omlet at 10am.

    I snacked on sweet and zesty pickles, olives, carrots and celery until lunch was served at 1pm.

    Lunch:
    Turkey,
    home-made rolls,
    mash-potatoes and gravy,
    stuffing,
    baked sweet potatoes,
    sweet potato cass.,
    cranberry jello,
    broccoli,
    lemon aid/sweet tea,

    Desert:
    Gingerbread Triffle
    pumpkin pie
    Pecan Pie

    Dinner:

    Turkey Ciabata sandwich

    I did have some seconds at lunch, but never hit the food coma stage.

    I was probably not outside of my calorie limit either. I have a resting metabolic rate of 2150. While I haven't worked out today, I did a 60 minute spin class yesterday which burned at least 750 cals, plus 20 minutes lifting weights.

    I could stand to gain 10 lbs of muscle. I need to eat more because I think I'm not keeping some of my muscle gains because I just haven't been taking in enough calories to offset my cardio workouts.

    unfortunately I was unable to go home for Thanksgiving for my mom's cooking, but luckily a classmate invited me over for dinner with his wife and kids. the food and company both were great. we had the usual: turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, corn, cranberries, veggies, fruit salad, pies.....and on and on!

    I hear those taste a bit like crow... which isn't that much different from turkey, I guess?
