OHHH my goodness. Too… much… food. I’ll just begin with that, because that is what I will remember most from this Thanksgiving!
But to start off, I worked out in the morning and did:
15 minutes of abs
30 minutes of intervals (1 minute running 2 minutes walking)
A 5k running!
So though I didn’t do the Turkey Trot… I still got in my 5k plus more! I think I ran a total of 4.2 miles and walked 1.5. I feel pretty awesome!
After working out, I went to my aunts house for Thanksgiving Dinner #1
Everything was good… but my favorite thing was the Jalapeno Poppers that were brought! Oh. my. goodness. Yum!
I think I scarfed lunch down way to fast… because within seconds I feel like I was already at my favorite part: Dessert
I only had a little bite of the chocolate pie… but my real favorites were my own Pumpkin Crunch Cake and my cousin’s Sweet Potato Cake. Oh my goodness I love them so much. I’m a sucker for desserts!
After spending time with the family, I headed over to Spencer’s for Thanksgiving #2, the Cowboy’s game, and the UT v A&M game.
I of course… had more dessert… who do you think I am??
I showed the picture of the whole thing in the post before… but this is the beautiful view of my Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars. These were good. I think both my desserts were a hit which makes me happy and boosts my baking ego 😛
I pretty much love the Petty family by the way….
It was a really great Thanksgiving! And instead of my writing the recipes down to all the food I made in the last two days…. Since that is “Recipe Overload”… Here are the links to the recipes with changes that I made:
-I used olive oil instead of canola
–I substituted 2 cups water for 2 cups chicken broth
–I only did about a 1.5 cups of turkey but it ended up being a perfect amount
I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of regular
Caramel Apple Cheesecake
I used fat free cream cheese for this one.
– I used nonfat evaporated milk
– I used half the amount of butter the first time I made it… but for some reason had to use more the second time. Use something with a pour spout to pour it and you probably wont have to use as much
