Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! While I didn’t feel “totally into it” as I mentioned last week it still was a great weekend filled with food, workouts, family/friend time, and catching up on some organization.

On Wednesday evening I did ALL the baking…

Salted Caramel Apple, Pumpkin and Chocolate Pecan Pie

On Thursday morning I ran a Turkey Trot with my friend. I was so tired from staying up late from baking but I got my act together and did it!

Great course and great company!

After lounging, watching the parade and dog show, I made the dips, then got ready for our company to come.

I made an avocado feta dip and a pumpkin bean dip as well as a cheese plate.

We all enjoyed the dips for a few hours then I helped my Dad with all the final touches of dinner.

My plate πŸ™‚

Then with full bellies we watched Elf as part of our tradition every year! In the middle of the movie I snuck off to get dessert ready.

I made homemade whipped cream for the pies. SO good and so easy with the Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Then we dug into the pies. I had to sample each of them of course. This plate put the full belly over the edge.

The next day was Christmas decorating day for us.

The rest of the weekend was getting together with friends, taking a sweaty spin class, food shopping, a run, relaxing and crossing some things off the to-do list. It was a great weekend filled with all of my favorite things. Although I may not have felt so “in it” I still enjoyed it! πŸ™‚
