Today started off quite cool -2C this morning but that didn't stop me I still got in a 2 mile walk with some hills to climb. I then sat down to put recipes together for thanksgiving. I told my Mom that I would help with the preparing. I actually wanted to make it as healthy and low in calories as possible. We will have to travel four hours by car to get to where my family lives so I need to prepare food for travel as well the last time I shared a sandwich with my husband from one of our quick stops I was sick a half hour later as all the fillers in the sandwich got my stomach going.
I have packed the dogs toys, food and blanket already and will put our things in later tonight. I am looking forward to seeing all the our families and some of our close friends as well.
I now going to make a healthy pumpkin bread that I got off of sparkrecipes and a strawberry jello pie also from spark recipes. Desserts will be down if I don't get to the pie here then I will back it at my Mom's who has probably baked a couple of pumpkin pies already.
I am going to just have a little of everything. It is easy for my to avoid turkey as the their is something in it that doesn't agree with me so I am making ham for those of us that like ham. I am doing it in the slow cooker.
Well I better get going or nothing will get down. Off I go.
