November 25th, 2011

I made a feast for dinner last night - 22 lb. turkey, stuffing, cranny cran crans, mashed potatoes, gravy and yams.
Just the three of us.
No greens.
No veggies.
No pies.
Pretty much just the meat n potatoes (and the yams just for me).
And then it dawned on me… I basically made a huge cache of sandwich fixin’s for the week. Gawd I love being a grown-up.

Turkey pattern by my friend Vanessa and can be found here.

    Your dinner sounds perfect. I made pies this year and now I am stuck with them! I just had pumpkin pie for breakfast. Well, it does contain all the things I need- fruit, dairy, protein, fiber, Vitamin C. I’ll just pretend that it’s not only good but good for me. ;)
    I have that turkey pattern set aside to make for Emma for her birthday next year. She’ll be 2- a great age for fake food!
