Who is still recovering from Thanksgiving?! This girl right here that’s for sure!
Thanksgiving may be one of my favorite times of year. Family and friends gathering around food. It may be a time you get to spend with loved ones that you really don’t see throughout the year and then there’s pies…lots and lots of pies. It doesn’t get any better than that! Well, in our case, there was pies on top of red velvet & chocolate cake. If the Weaver’s are hosting an event and you are in charge of dessert, don’t come in here without something red velvet or chocolate LOL.
This year was our 3rd year hosting Turkey Day. Every year I choose to do the Turkey Trot 10K here in Houston. Yes, it kind of stresses me out because the entire time I’m running I’m thinking about all the things I still have to do that morning, but 1) That makes me run faster 2) I don’t feel so bad about everything I am about to consume that day and 3) It is for a good cause!
What really helps is that I prepare as much as I can the night before. I cook what I can in advance and also doing things like dicing onions, peeling potatoes and chopping up anything I will need for the next day. Doing this really saves so much time!
