Light Breakfast

In preparation for the third of my four Thanksgiving meals I will be consuming at my work’s potluck lunch today, I decided to keep breakfast nice and light.

Monday's Breakfast

I enjoyed a cup of Chobani Greek yogurt topped with homemade cranberry relish. The mix of tart and sweet flavors made this breakfast yum-tastic.

Too Much Turkey?

Is is possible to get sick of Thanksgiving meals? I am on my third Thanksgiving meal in four days and I’m already hurtin’ a little bit. I don’t want to get sick of turkey and other staples by the time the big day arrives! Fortunately I think there’s something to be said for your own family’s home-cookin’. 😉 No one makes better stuffing than my mama!

One thing I am really liked about the various Thanksgiving meal’s I’ve enjoyed is seeing what other people bring. It’s so interesting to see what dishes people consider mandatory in their Thanksgiving meal. My family always has turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, peas (and maybe green beans), cranberry sauce, stuffing, rolls with butter and pumpkin pie.

I know people that would be appalled that my Thanksgiving does not include sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, baked macaroni and cheese or pecan pie.

What do you HAVE to have on Thanksgiving?

I need stuffing on Thanksgiving. Also, as weird as it is, I need peas, too. My dad and I always make little “pea pockets” in our mashed potatoes before stirring them in and topping everything (and I mean everything) with gravy. I can’t imagine a Thanksgiving meal without my peas!

  1. I totally agree on having mom’s cooking! We go to my in-laws first, and they don’t make anything from scratch, so I hate eating there before my parents. I have to have stuffing! Love it!!

  2. Get well soon!!

  3. stuffing and cranberry sauce is a MUST…i truly eat these foods this one day of the year and they MUST be consumed with my meal!! I am making homemade cranberry sauce!! 🙂

    enjoy your potluck lunch!!

  4. Stuffing is my favorite too! We’re eating at a restaurant this year so I’m just hoping their stuffing can compete with my mom’s!

  5. Green bean casserole is a MUST for me. I love it! All your Thanksgiving look tasty!

  6. It sounds a lot like our Christmas dinner, we have Turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes, sprouts, gravy etc. We also have a Christmas dinner at work, but that’s more like a buffet. I love Christmas dinners but I think if I had them too often I’d get sick of them.
