Fat Friday

 

No, I am not doing any Black Friday shopping. It is almost 10 pm Thanksgiving night and my family just left. That’s 10 hours of non-stop talking and eating. 

 

thanksgiving desserts

 

I am talked out and pooped!  This dessert table full of goodies is missing 3 pies and a large birthday cake (we also celebrated 3 birthdays.)  No one was allowed to leave without a big doggie bag! 

 

Loved it...had fun...everything went well!  I don’t want to see mashed potatoes for a year!

Good morning Kathy Streib - now what to do with all those leftovers.  Fortunately, we left them all at my daughters in laws in Pennsylvania.

I was so exhausted by the time I got my Thanksgiving dinner on the table that I wasn't really hungry.  However, I woke up around 3:00 am this morning, and heated up a plate, and it tastes so good!

Kathy,

We are going out for lunch today to one of our favorites places, Ace Hardware for dirt, lightbulbs, etc, and the Harbor for Ahi tuna which is plentiful this week for dinner...No stores, no bargains, just enjoying a sunny day, before the expected rain...A

No shopping for me here, either. I'm using today to catch up with odds and ends at home, and then meet a friend at Baker Beach for a Festival of Light and Gratitude.

Hi Kathy,
I'm pretty proud of my eating discipline yesterday.     I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I'm content to stay home and watch some college basketball and our college football Civil War game while working at the computer.

Michael Jacobs it took me no time at all to fall asleep last night!  

Sharon Lee Thank you. I guess you know you had a good time when you're exhausted. 

Wayne Martin when I looked back at what I ate, I realized that I didn't eat that much either.

Donald Urschalitz if it was the Garden's Mall, I can't blame them. Haven't been in a few years but I loved it. 

Very good Brian England I haven't even looked on Amazon!

Raymond Henson that actually sounds good! I've never made them but will get Larry to try to make them!!!

Grant Schneider I even bought a bunch of covered dishes for people to take home leftovers and I still have lots of leftovers. 

Myrl Jeffcoat I'm usually that way when I prepare a meal...I lose interest in eating it. But I do love the leftovers. 

Kris Collis, Associate Broker I can't wait to have my leftovers tomorrow!

Nina Hollander oh yes...that's why I bought little plastic-covered dishes for everyone to take something home in. 

Barbara Todaro Larry and I had soup tonight. I had no interest in anything more.

Beth Atalay I did in my younger days but I have no interest now. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel We have an Ace Hardware about 5 minutes from home!!! We go there often as well as 2 other Ace Hardware stores 15 to 20 minutes away. They all have different gift and houseware areas as well and it's fun hanging out there while Larry looks for more "boring" things.
