Here I was ranting and raving about having Turkey for Thanksgiving and I ended up having to settle for a small scale Thanksgiving Dinner here at home with my family.

I'm not complaining...don't get me wrong.  I loved being able to spend Thanksgiving Day with my family (minus Devyn ~ he was with his dad) and enjoy the blessings it brought us.  The only thing I do have to complain about is this...
You see, my side of the family (i.e. my sister, my aunt, my uncle & cousins) were all to celebrate on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.  That was the day we could all manage to be together.  Well, it just so happens that I was not feeling any better than "manageable" and to top it off...3 of my children were down with the congestion, runny noses & irritability too. 

There was no way I was going to subject my family to our germs.  And well, to be honest...those little ones & I really needed to rest and not have to endure countless hours of playing, laughing, eating great food, enjoying good conversation and numerous hugs from family...geesh.
I'm not sure about the rest of you but I am really anticipating eating Thanksgiving turkey.  Not just the trimmin's but TURKEY.  I must be needing the protein or something.
Instead of having sugar plums dancing in my head...I've got turkey breasts, turkey legs, turkey sandwiches, turkey tacos & even turkey casserole parading past my eyes. 
Anyone else out there having the same dreams?
Perhaps it's the fact that we are planning on attending 2 Thanksgiving dinners this coming week.  Or perhaps it's the fact that turkey is where it's at baby.  
(My hubby, Chris would disagree with me right about now...he is salivating for some of my sister's ham...she cooks a Mean Ham!)
So fire up your grill, warm up your oven, throw some coals in your pit or heat up some oil...We're havin' Turkey tonight!
...or atleast sometime this week.  :)
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
