|What happens AFTER the meal|
As for what I'm bringing- I'm making this Roasted Butternut Baked Penne mac and cheese- it sounds SO SO good. I'll make a small trial batch tonight just to make sure it doesn't taste weird, but with the ingredient list I think that might be impossible. I also had about 5 butternut squashes laying around (a coworker grows them) so I spent a few hours roasting and pureeing squash.
I've made it my mission to make mac and cheese a staple at holiday meals- I don't really understand why it wasn't before- it has all the warmth and comfort a holiday meal needs. I'm hoping that sneaking in a heaping portion of veggies (disguised as creamy and rich!) will go over well- but I think the butternut will be a great addition. Don't worry, I'll let you know.
Weigh in this week went.. ok.. I technically lost weight, but not much. Only .2 lbs. I know it's better than gaining, I just thought that my week had gone better, so it was a little disappointing. I'm still glad I went and weighed in though. I'm thinking of switching what night I go to meetings- my leader isn't really inspiring me much- and the lady I used to like a lot unfortunately isn't a leader anymore. There are even two new locations near me- I haven't tried either, so maybe I'll shop around a little bit and see if I can find a leader who puts a little more spark into the meetings.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving- this is by far my favorite holiday- you get to see and spend time with your friends and family, and eat REALLY GOOD FOOD.
