So far, our Thanksgiving vacation has been wonderfully relaxing. In addition to finishing Santa's Garden, I've done some laundry, watched entirely too many movies/TV shows on DVD, and I made a delicious dinner on Thursday! I found a recipe for spinach-and-herb stuffed turkey breast that I wanted to try, and it was verrrrrrrry tasty. And of course I made the traditional green bean casserole and sweet potatoes, plus my mom's cranberry-orange salad that I love (And DH doesn't like, but that's ok, more for me!). I topped it off with pumpkin parfaits -- just pie filling made with Splenda swirled with lite cool whip and layered with crumbled cinnamon graham crackers. Really good, and pretty low-cal, as Thanksgiving desserts go!
My back is feeling better, so I think it will back to the gym with me on Monday. But for now I shall enjoy lolling about for just a bit longer, pick at the turkey carcass, and start on Judith's RR square.... *grin*
