    Even after I had only one plate, plus some nibbles of mash potatoes and stuffing, and then a walk around the block for a good 15 minutes, I still managed to doze off while the Cowboys-Redskin game was on the TV this afternoon. I be feeling still a bit stuffed 6 hours after the big meal of the day!
    But, I did not have to loosen up my belt this time around. [​IMG]

    I was stuffed after a plate and a half heaped with food, but after only a few minutes I was ready for a huge piece of pumpkin cheesecake and another huge piece of this chocolate pudding-ish pie. I think I'll skip breakfast...


    Nah!

    I'm pretty stuffed, two of us ate one breast from a 12 pound bird, well ok mostly I ate it, but still.
    then I had a HEAP of mashed potatoes and some stuffing, then I dozed off on the couch for a half hour, then I went to bed for about an hour or two [​IMG]
    I've been nibbling on turkey the rest of the night, it's tasty [​IMG]

    Not at all. The bad news is I worked today so I didn't get to visit my family for Thanksgiving. The good news is I made triple time for working on a day that wasn't very busy. I'm a vendor and my only stop for today was Meijer. They had the best sale ever going on, so after I got finished working I went shopping. I got 50% off a gold herringbone necklace for my girlfriend's birthday, 50% off a silver herringbone for myself, 50% off a pair of boots for me, 50% off a pair of boots for my brother's birthday, 50% off two pairs of pants for me, and 20% off an X Box game (Hitman II) for me. That adds up to making about $250 in holiday pay, $200 of which went to buying $350 worth of stuff. I wish every day could be Thanksgiving[​IMG]

    Not that stuffed. I'm diabetic, so I can't indulge in my wildest food frenzy fantasies. I did get to watch LOTR: EE though, since I finally had a day off from work!

    I never eat a big meal for Thanksgiving, In fact I eat a lighter meal than what I usually do.

    - But though-out the rest of the day I find myself going back for a small piece of lasagna,

    - a few minutes later I think maybe I'll have a cookie or two.

    -Sit in front of the computer 10 minutes and then wander back into the kitchen and cut myself a small piece of pumpkin pie, "Hmmm I haven't tried any of that Chocolate caramel cheesecake yet, I better take a small piece of that also".

    - 15 minutes later another small serving of the lasagna...

    - 15 minutes later, "How about a slice of that banana bread".

    - 10 minutes later, "Ahh a few more cookies would be nice".

    - 30 minutes later "Arrrhhh I feel kind of bloated, I can't eat another thing".

    - 15 minutes later, "That cheesecake was good, I'll should have another piece".

    - 30 minutes later, "Ughhh I feel ill from all that junk food, maybe I'll feel better if I chase it down with some real food" , reaches back in fridge for mash potatoes, stuffing and corn with mushroom gravy poured all over it.

    - and so on and so on.........

    I was stuffed for a while today. I ate the most today, than I have in the longest while. I ended up falling asleep, and after waking up I didn't feel stuffed anymore. Now I know why animals like sleeping after they eat alot.

    I'm so fricken stuffed. It's just when you add that gravy everything tastes sooooooo good!!! About the feeling tired, turkey is high in triptophane (not sure of the spelling) which enduces relaxed drowsiness. My dogs, who got their Thanksgiving treat are still gently subdued, which is very unlike them. I'm going to get them up for a long walk now. We all need it.

    Not stuffed from the food, but I'm a bit relaxed from the bottle of wine and 3 beers I drank.
