If your pants are tight...

... you did Thanksgiving right! Amen.

We had 2 Thanksgivings... got ourselves invited to friends on Thursday and went to Lee's folks on Friday. The 1st dinner, which Lee discusses on his blog, left us utterly full for 8 hours. I could not eat pie. I took one bite and I felt like that John Cleese/Monty Python sketch... "it's wafer thin..." We figure the fullness was due to the butter, sour cream, bacon fat, lard... and those were only the fats we KNEW about. I'm sure I personally ate the equivalent of a full stick of butter. Or two.

I did NOT have to unbutton my pants, thankfully. I DID have heartburn 2 nights in a row. Guess which nights! Ha ha. And Lee was up super late Thursday because of 2 Cokes and 2 cappuccinos.

















I made 4 pies for Friday. 2 pumpkin and 2 apple/raspberry. I do not care for pumpkin pie, but ended up with and extra one to take home. Have been chipping away at the rest of the apple/raspberry. Pie is good for breakfast, right? Fruit? (I made apple/raspberry because I did not have enough apples for 2 pies, as I was only going to make one, but what the heck, it's Thanksgiving, so I made it 2 with a bag of frozen raspberries I had. Delicious, btw.)

Pie is only good for breakfast when you SHARE it. SHARE THE PIE!!!

Sounds like you should have made your OWN pies!

I have it on good authority that chocolate cake is also good for breakfast. In case you wanted to know...
