It always depends on what’s going on at work – some years we get to leave early, and some days its just a regular day.  I’ll just have to wait and see!

I realized this morning I’ve done nothing to prepare for Thanksgiving tomorrow!  Haven’t made my pies, brined my turkey or anything.  Luckily there will only be five of us, so I am not worried – I’ll get it all done.

Tonight I am going to make Nicole’s crustless pumpkin pie.  Only 162 calories a slice!  Because I am also making my full metal jacket pecan pie.

Here is my recipe for a perfect pie crust.  Um, it only has 1.5 sticks of butter for two pie crusts!

Yesterday’s breakfast – McDonald’s sausage biscuit and a sliced apple.

I have to say, I am kind of getting a bit sick of running 5k’s every day – only four more to do before the end of my 21 day challenge!  Check out my time yesterday!!


So fricken close!  I’ll get to my goal before Sunday – only have to shave 7 seconds off. Smile with tongue out

I had Tony’s leftover Chinese for lunch – I promise there were veggies and sliced beef on the bottom of all these noodles.  After this picture was taken, I had to spice it up with some sriracha though.

Yep, I added a snowman to my picture using – it’s almost time to bring out my snowmen!!  I am sure Tony is so excited that it’s snowman season – #not!

I had leftover pot roast and made open faced beef sandwiches – half a kaiser roll topped with 3 ounces of thinly sliced roast beef, topped with baby swiss and put under the broiler.  On the side was German potato salad and then I topped each sammie with 1/4 cup of gravy.  While this looks like ass, it was really good!

I have to scoot – we have a birthday at our office and I have to stop and pick up bagels on my way to work.  Fingers crossed we get to leave early!

Question of the Day: How many people will be at your Thanksgiving table?

I won’t be blogging until Friday – I hope you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!
