Thanksgiving Continues?

November 27, 2010

I thought Thursday was Thanksgiving but yesterday felt like a holiday too and I for one was not complaining.

I watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade EVERY year but this year I was running a race so the parade was taped and watched a day late.  Turns out I was very okay with it because it made it feel like Thanksgiving wasn’t over.

By the way, remember how I refered to Black Friday shoppers as “crazies”?  Yeah, I was one of those crazies last year and Joey was one this year.  He got up at 3 AM to snag a new tv and even though he was in line at Target 45 minutes before it opened he still didn’t get the tv.  I learned my lesson last year and stayed in bed.

We woke up, cooked some food (I was hungry so I guess I didn’t overdo it yesterday!), picked up some starbucks and dined in bed while watching the parade.

Soy because I have a bit of a cold and milk doesn’t help.

Macchiato for Joey.

Doesn’t our carpet make a nice backdrop?

Lazy oatmeal = banana whipped oats + sprinkle of granola and maple syrup.  Plain and simple but delish.

At noon I finally dragged myself out of bed but only because there was promise of leftovers and fresh out of the oven Great Harvest bread at my parents’.

In other words I was the epitome of lazy yesterday.

I had a taste of everything and it was just as good the second time around!  The stuffing is officially gone 😦  Can’t wait to see it again for Christmas. 

The bread is gluten free and pretty darn tasty.  I was excited to identify the flax seeds inside 🙂

Got a massage after lunch (told you I was lazy today!) then went home and lounged about.

Dinner was leftovers of our minestrone soup, which looks more like stew now that the liquid has had time to absorb.

We ate this on Wednesday night and while it was delicious I definitely woke up at 4 in the morning and HAD to go eat a snack.  I was so hungry I thought I was going to die.

Sure looks pretty though.

Pumpkin Muffin from Great Harvest is calling my name, see ya!

    My Mom and I have gone out on Black Friday for 10 years now. Our plan is to not have a plan. We make a list of stores we want to go to, but have the attitude of “if we can get what we want, we get it, if it’s gone, oh well.” We left the house at 3:45, hit all the stores we wanted, had a great breakfast, came home to nap, went out again and I got a lot of good stuff! The longest line was 1/2 hour at Old Navy.

      Sounds like you two know how to do it right! Hope you got some good stuff.

    I feel like Thanksgiving is a holiday specifically designed for people to indulge their lazy side. So unlike x-mas which is always go, go, go! I like the contrast between the two. 🙂

    I’ve decided to make another stuffing tomorrow night since I didn’t get enough of it 😉
