WIAW #33

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on November 28,2012

Hello, Everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!  I am sharing my meals from Thanksgiving day.  We had a very low-key holiday at my parents house. My mom and sister did most of the cooking. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (7:30am)

Since the kitchen was already busy, we ran out to Starbucks to pick-up coffee for everyone. And we brought pastries from one of our favorite bakeries. I had a very tasty pastry that was sort a combination of a sugar donut and a croissant.

AM Snacks (11:00am)

Unpictured – I think we ate so quickly, I completely forgot to take a picture. 🙂

 We snacked on homemade guacamole (my husband’s specialty) and chips.

Dinner (4:00pm)

For Thanksgiving dinner I had turkey with gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, brussels sprouts, asparagus, sweet potatoes and rolls.  There were other dishes I skipped, my mom cooked for about 20 people but we are a small family of 5. 🙂

Dessert (7:00pm)

Pumpkin pie, of course. My sister made the pie and it was very tasty.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals!

    You and Fred ate well! 🙂

  6. I have to admit that up until a year ago, my favorite part of holiday meals was always the carbs 🙂 Now I enjoy eating the turkey, meat, etc. But before I would always load up on the rolls, corn and mashed potatoes! Then my dessert place was always equal, if not larger than my main course.

    I love how you all sit down at the table together. I can’t remember the last time that I sat down at a table for Thanksgiving. At my grandma’s house the dining room table is used to serve the food, and because there are so many of us (25 or more) we all just scatter around the house. My dad and uncle usually take the living room, so that’s where our side of the family always sit!
