    We had a lot of stuff. I'm just starting to recover, which means I'm about a 1/2 step away from leftovers.

    Tomato cheddar soup
    wilted spinach with bacon and onions
    standing rib roast
    white chocolate creme bu-lea

    After we got everything cleaned we decided we all need to move around so we went pumpkin smashing into the feed bunks for about an hour so we could have left overs.

    Last evening we had lil' smokies in a tangy oriental sauce, shrimp cocktails, boxed chocolates and homemade cookies......
    Today, we did a nice ham, homemade au-gratin 'taters, croissant rolls, baked and regular corn, lots of homemade cookies....

    I can't wait to start back at the gym here in a month or so.....;hm

    I see I'm not the only one who had a power breakfast;) You have to be careful with food, I just awoke from a food induced coma.

    For years Mom now makes either chili,potato soup or beer cheddar soup.Some years I make chili instead.Always have a small ham,homemade bread,a bushel of party mix,crackers,cheeses,fresh veggies,relish tray,black.green olives,assorted homemade fudge etc.She started doing that decades ago when we were little.Much easier for us to 'snack' or 'graze' & eat when we want than her to fix a big sit down dinner like Thanksgiving Day.

    Everyone else usually brings something too,one sis brought some homemade cookies,banana blackwalnut bread,cranberry walnut bread,one bro brought summer sausage/wheat thins etc.

    Did the neighborhood mongrels steal your turkey? ;lol

    We usually get a big sub from Subway. This year was all out-party trays from Dibella's. I ate godfathers till I couldn't fit no more.

    Nope . . . I just prefer to spend the day with my friends instead of my family who annoy me.

    That’s why I no longer do x-mas with the extended family. It's just the kids wife and I. Much more relaxing.
