Good Morning everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I sure did!

My Thanksgiving morning started out with a 5K Turkey Trot in Overland Park, KS. We headed out for the race thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal, but when we were probably a mile away from where the race was being held, we already saw traffic backing up!

I guess I should have known by our race numbers, I signed us up almost 2 months ago and we were numbers 1063 and 1064…

Look at these crowds!

Luckily, we were able to find my cousins, R.C. and Allie! Allie ran in the Susan G Komen 10K with me back in September and she’s my “running guru.” Haha, she’s run a few marathons so I always go to her for advice!

We all started together, but Allie and R.C. headed off once we hit the start, finishing it together, and I ran the whole race with my dad.

I’m so glad I decided to run with him, rather than race the 5K. Thanksgiving is all about being thankful, and I am so thankful for my dad! I had a great time running it with him and I was so proud of how fast he was moving! I don’t know what our final time was, but it was around 28:15, which is a PR for him!

For Thanksgiving dinner, I offered to bring some roasted brussels sprouts, so that I would have another dish that I could eat. I found a recipe on Food and Wine’s website for Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta. I didn’t have shallots, so I ended up using vivaldi onions instead.

So what did I learn making this simple dish? I am a baker. Not a cook. I’ve always had a natural ability to bake, but cooking has typically been overwhelming for me and I never know what to do. Haha, everyone said it was good, but I was certainly worried. I definitely don’t think they were the best brussels sprouts ever… but I tried.

Also, please note this fantastic dish that my mother found. It’s from her wedding… in 1983.

You couldn’t tell though, right?

What was great about dinner though was my cousin, Allie, made me a small dish of millet stuffing! It was really sweet of her, especially since stuffing is my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner (other than pie…). It wasn’t exactly the same, but I got the flavors and really appreciated it! I also was sent home with the rest in a zip lock baggie!

Dinner turned out a lot better than I expected, I barely noticed what I couldn’t eat and had a great time enjoying the company. It wasn’t even that bad sitting and talking while everyone else had their pie (they made three pies! Pecan, apple and pumpkin). I do wish, however, that I’d thought to have a dessert for myself at home afterwards! I got home and wanted nothing more than something super sweet!

 

What was your favorite dish from your Thanksgiving meal?

Did you do anything active on Thanksgiving?
