Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate it!

For us it's just another day but I will think of all of you with your families and turkeys and too much pie, or whatever you are doing to celebrate, and I will eat chocolate in your honour. (I'll eat chocolate anyway so it might as well be in your honour.)

I wonder what it feels like to have two major feasts within just one month of each other. I have enough trouble sorting out Christmas.

What does it feel like?

Like a weather balloon with too much air in it. After gorging oneself there is a feeling of euphoria - mixed with guilt - mixed with extreme well-being - and more guilt.

Thanks for the well-wishes. Enjoy your chocolate.

Wishing you lots of euphoria and no guilt at all!

I could handle the double feast...

We feasted yesterday. Since our family is all over the place and there were just four of us here, we went to Gadsby's Tavern in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Pretty cool place - it's looked much the same since George Washington and Thomas Jefferson dined there in the late 1700s (you know how Americans are - we think that makes it REALLY old!)

They had the whole colonial thing going on yesterday- served only foods that would've been served during a feast back in the day, in that regions (we had peanuts and dried cranberries in our lettuce, in the salad course, kinda cool).

And yeah, we ate until we hurt. Weird holiday traditon, but there ya go.

Beautiful pic, FH!

McK, as long as no one was asking me to cook!

Robin, it sounds wonderful. 1700s is old even by UK standards! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

(Picture was a random surfing the net looking for something free find.)

That sounds like a cool tradition, Robin!

Had a very nice, relaxing Thanksgiving in which I TOOK THE DAY OFF.
