Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your day is filled with peace and happiness.
Iâ€™m sure no one saw this coming (hah!), butâ€¦ I caught Henryâ€™s stomach flu. And then Kristien started to feel under the weather, too. A whole house full of sick. There was nothing left to do but reschedule our holiday meal. Our guests will arrive tomorrow instead of today.
Much better to be safe than sorry, though. I donâ€™t want to pass it to anyone else. The buck stops here!
I had the worst of it on Tuesday night, which interfered with my ability to do all the Thanksgiving meal prep work (and cleaning!). Fortunately, our grocery store makes awesome pieâ€¦
And my family is helping me pick up the food slack.

Turkey and dressing
So Iâ€™m thinking that Kristien and I will add in a salad, grilled asparagus, tofu, and rice. Iâ€™m going to make homemade orange-cranberry relish, too â€“ if I can peel myself off the couch during Henryâ€™s nap. Anyone have any recipe recommendations?
Well, thatâ€™s all I can muster. I wish I was feeling 100% â€“ Iâ€™d love to be joining the rest of you in Turkey Trotting and feasting! Even though we arenâ€™t eating our big Thanksgiving meal, Iâ€™m still taking pause to be thankful for all the wonderful things in our livesâ€¦ including Breaking Bad on Netflix.
Did you run a Turkery Trot this morning? How far did you go?
