Food Coma

The bad news is, it did rain pretty much throughout the day on our Wednesday Thanksgiving. The good news is Deb's friends helped move the grill under the overhang and so we got the grilled fish. With about 15 of Deb's friends, we enjoyed wine, salmon and all the other white trash, carb-filled sides. We had mashed potatoes, spoon corn bread, stuffing, and green bean casserole. We also had steamed broccoli to bring a little balance. To be fair, the stuffing had no butter and we use 1/2 the soup and twice the beans in the green bean casserole. The salmon has a great zin sauce and is grilled so that's probably pretty healthy. The mashed potatoes do have butter but are made with 2% milk.

The company brings dessert and we had pumpkin cheese cake, gingerbread men, orange glazed cinnamon rolls, and pumpkin pie w/ ice cream. And of course, there was a lot of good wine. We ate and drank late into the night. On Thanksgiving day we stayed in and ate leftovers. We were very thankful for good food and good friends.
