Just a note to share...

Hello everyone!! Hope everyone had a great weekend and made healthy choices.  I tried my best from the options I had because I was in a wedding this weekend and they had no sugar free drinks so I didn't have much choice there.  They didn't have water either. :(  I am glad the wedding is over for my best friends sake because she was sooo stressed.  But I told her, I think there are very few weddings that ever go perfect so just relax and enjoy the wonderful time you did have.  :) 

Anyways, I might not be writing much this week because I have a lot to do with cleaning the house, and cooking my very first Thanksgiving dinner all by myself.  Sorta scared about that since I am cooking a 20 lb. turkey.  This year we are cooking for some friends of my husband's because none his or there family is here.  My husbands family lives in Honduras and we really don't get a chance to see them much so I am cooking for my husbands good friends and a friend and her family this year.  It should be interesting and I am excited but scared about messing up the food.  My family will be saving me a little bit of there traditional thanksgiving dinner as well. 

Good luck with your BFC choices and Happy Thanksgiving to all you girls! :)


  1. I am sure you will do fine cooking the dinner. You could not be as bad as me and leave all the goodies inside the Glad the wedding went well. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy time with friends and family.

  2. Good luck with your dinner. I'm sure you'll do fine. I always cook my turkey in one of those turkey bags so that it remains nice and moist. I also cook the turkey upside down so that all the fat and juices run down into the breast of the turkey while it cooking. Doing these two things creates a moist turkey. I don't worry about having a perfect looking turkey; I care more about the flavor and moistness. We cut it up and arrange it on a platter for putting on the table.

  3. Thanks girls! :) Yea I did buy a turkey oven bag and was planning on using that. Good idea about cooking the turkey upside down....never thought about that but that is a very very good idea. I will have to try.

    Thanks for the tip!
