Happy Thanksgiving and a Blog Break!

Thursday is Thanksgiving!  

 I'm excited and I'm looking forward to, you know, amazing people with my super culinary skills. Okay, not true, but I am excited to eat. That is true. 

I love turkey smothered in mashed potatoes and savory gravy. I love yeast rolls and cornbread dressing. I love pumpkin pie! 

But that's not what Thanksgiving is all about. I mean I guess it kinda is since they did have a big feast. 

So here's my top 5 things I'm thankful for at Thanksgiving.

5. I'm thankful I didn't have to grow corn or kill my own turkey or wear white paper or feather hats. Because with feather hats comes war paint and I'm out this year. And with the white hats come no make-up and um...well that ain't  happenin! (make-up and war paint are totally different)

4. I'm thankful the dude at Kroger's let me know if I didn't have a Kroger card my turkey would have been $30 bucks, so I saved over $12 since he saved me. So I'm totally thankful for young punks who yawn at 7:30 in the morning but are on top of saving money for old broads like me.

3.I'm thankful I got to brag about my savings to my husband as most times, I'm trying to talk him into believing all the money I spend is for good know like pretty stuff for my house or books. Or 10 assorted creamers and yes, I will drink all of them. Yes, I do need them all. I like making choices--or at least having choices, I don't necessarily like making them.

2. I'm thankful no one expects me to dress up on Thanksgiving and I can wear my "eating" pants and no shoes.

And the #1 thing I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving is....

Naps! Because 1, I love naps especially on Turkey day and everyone knows it's inevitable because of Tryptophan and 2,  it gets me out of conversations I care nothing about. Like who's scoring a touchdown or who's not backing the line...thus line backers, right? Right?

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Gobble Gobble! 

I'll be taking a blogging break  until next Wednesday.  I know that's a long time to do without me, but I'll still be all over facebook and twitter, so don't lose touch with me. Seriously, don't. :)

What's your favorite Thanksgiving dessert? And if it's really yummy and you have a minute, share the recipe!


  1. Apple pie. Pecan pie. Husband likes pumpkin pie. I'm making Mt. Dew Cake thought because no one can agree on which pie for me to make.

  2. First, you are not allowed to call yourself an old broad as we are the same age--I am slightly offended. Second, I LOVE stuffing, but no one else in my family does. I'm still making a double batch and yes, all the leftovers will then be mine. And third, I am restocking my creamer selection as I bought several large, on sale creamers last week in anticipation of this week and am down to only three, which will in no way survive until dessert time on Thanksgiving.

    And my favorite dessert - ALL of them! Except pumpkin pie. Yeah, I know, it's very unThanksgivingy.

    Have an amazing Thanksgiving:)

  3. I'm sure I'll be texting. You know I can't go that long without communicating with you!! Happy Thanksgiving. Muah! I'm so thankful for you.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Jessica! My favorite dessert is anything made with dark chocolate!

  5. That Friends episode cracks me up. I like a lot of cool whip with a little bit of pumpkin pie and a little pecan pie hiding underneath.

  6. HA! I'm with you on downing the creamers, girlie!

    And I love my MIL's pecan pie (she often substitutes walnuts and they're great, too). She also makes an elderberry pie that my hubby loves.

    Here's hoping we all get pleasantly stuffed on Thursday!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving, Jess.

    I am thankful for naps too!

  8. LOL! I love that Friends episode with Joey and his turkey pants! :)

  9. Hope you had a great turkey day!

    Enjoy the break (and your naps) LOL
