We had a very nice time.
I got up and got my turkey in the oven. Then I cleaned up around the house before getting dressed. We had done so much prep work on Wednesday that I really didn't have as much to do as in the past.
The meal turned out wonderful. My sister-in-law made a dish that is custom in her family and a couple that came brought a yummy pie and side dish.
I had a small spoonful of everything. I almost took a picture of my plate to share with you, but I didn't want to make everyone else feel uncomfortable. There was about 2-3 small bites of everything. It was enough to leave me just over satisfied and little enough that I knew I hadn't overdone it. I also chose to drink water with my meal instead of soda so as to not fill up on carbonation.
What a great feeling!!
I had a small piece of French Silk Pie with my coffee for dessert and that was fine also.
The only area I kind of "messed up" in was the crackers and cheese ball with the relish tray.
I LOVE green olives and ate a few too many crackers with cream cheese ball topped with olives.
They began to make me feel sick. Ugh.... but I knew I hadn't overeaten throughout the day, so I could recover from the snacks easily.
So, that's it. My honest post about how I ate. I feel I did fine.
Could I have eaten better? Yes, I could've stayed away from the hors d'oeuvres. That's what I will change for the future.
Am I proud of my other choices? Yes. My plate was by no means piled high with food and I didn't go back for seconds.
All in all, I made some good choices and I learned from other choices. I enjoyed wonderful time with our friends and family. We played games and talked a lot and it was a great day!
I hope you all had a wonderful day and enjoy some more rest and recreation during this long weekend.
