Happy Thanksgiving!πŸπŸ“πŸ™πŸŒ±

I cooked and cleaned for four hours today and was mindful of what I made but tried to keep the spirit of Thanksgiving! Here are some of the highlights from start to finish:


Cornish hen (16 oz. total) 220 calories per 4 oz.

Voila!!!


I cooked green beans they are extremely healthy! Almost similar to drinking water! lol A whole cup will only add about 34 calories to you!πŸƒ


Now potatoes can be less forgiving. They are a β€˜starchy vegetable’ and a WHOLE HALF CUP will cost you 110 calories!πŸ€£πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

I was going to add my healthy brown long rice, but honestly this was enough. And of course I have leftovers!!!

So I topped the meal off with a cup of hot tea β˜•οΈ and tea can be very low calorie even with a tspn of sugar you’re running under 30 calories. I prefer tea over coffee especially in the evening it’s better for you!

Finally, I had to add in a dessert so I baked cookies.πŸͺπŸͺπŸͺ


Each one of these peanut butter delights will run you about 100 calories. It was worth it. I had ONE and stored the others.

Well there you have it! My Thanksgiving was thought out and planned and portion-sized. I love stuffing and turkey but I’ve made turkey before, and today I wanted to try to make a Cornish hen for the first time. It was delicious!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜„πŸ“

    1. Yes, a few years ago, circa 2015. My love of the desert southwest as a dream came true since the first time I was here in the 1970s.

      The desert is an important part of my life today, yet with technology not thought of back then, we (family) stay connected.

      Why the tear-eyed emoji? Frankly, I am so much happier today as a very single man and will remain this way until the end.
