Yesterday I braved the crowds at my grocery store to buy food for the Feast that is Thanksgiving day. Let it be known, my family loves to eat, but we’re battling to do better at eating good foods. It’s more difficult at holidays, a time of celebration and indulgences of many kinds. Kevin, my husband, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in October, but I’m happy to report he is losing weight and feeling good! So our feast is being tempered slightly.
The grocery store was oh so busy, not just with shoppers but with vendors stocking displays,and people handing out food samples as well. There were also good deals everywhere on baking supplies and treats, Buy One get One Free is a typical motto of this store, so I did come home with some extras, but you need butter if you’re going to bake any right?
All this so my holiday dinner table can look something like this:
It will be a good day, and a yummy one too. The turkey is thawing in the freezer, no free range special for us, just a good ol’ Butterball!
I’ve got to brave the store early tomorrow for some fresh veggies and a few ingredients I forgot, but I’ll be ok.
Have you done your grocery shopping yet? Do you cook the traditional meal? Do you eat out? Tell me your traditions!
