WIAW: Thanksgiving Leftovers

Wednesday!! It’s always lovely to see ya. Last night, my friends from company and I were moping over how it was ONLY Tuesday. I think that’s how weeks tend to go by right after a break— nice and slowwwwww. At least there’s Christmas to look forward to!

For this edition of WIAW, I’ll be showing you what I ate the day after our Thanksgiving feast. Unlike other people who were full for the rest of the weekend after Turkey Day, I still had my appetite on Friday morning! Last year, I might have tried to ignore my hunger, thinking that I’d already eaten way too much the night before. I would hold back for the rest of the weekend and try to amp up the workouts in order to compensate. After reflecting on how my Thanksgiving went this year, I realized that it went a lot like Clare’s— much more enjoyable.

I also ended up cooking just as much on Friday as I did on Thursday since I wanted to jazz up some leftovers. I think I spent a good three hours making new dishes, which amounted to only two. I’m a painfully slow chef (“chef”), but I love cooking whenever I have the chance! Alright, I’m done rambling. Here’s what I ate on Friday:

The last of the berry crumb pie a la mode

Thanksgiving leftovers are seriously just as good (if not, better) than the actual turkey dinner. *Sigh* I’m gonna miss that pie.

Happy hump day 🙂

So tell me: What did you eat the day after Thanksgiving? Were you still full or did you have an appetite?
