Day 28, November 18, 2012

Pin It!
Today I still felt great.  We had LIFE Group (our Church Small Group) Thanksgiving Dinner this afternoon.  The host family had the meat, and, although other families brought sides, I wanted to make sure I could eat something, so I took a couple of things too.  Last night I made a couple of small loaves of Cranberry Orange Nut Coconut Bread, so I took that today.  This afternoon, my hubby juiced apples to make homemade wassail...that was a treat.  I also made Spiced Cranberry Jelly Sauce that I took.  Then, for a side, I made (what my husband has officially dubbed) "Squasage Casserole". This is a yummy casserole of sausage, veggies, and squash.  Good.  Since I was cooking the squash, I saved out the seeds and made Roasted Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Pepitas. We had a great time eating and fellowshipping, and what better way to end the night than to play "The Newly-Wed Game".  Guess who won!  WE DID! THAT'S RIGHT!  I love being able to actually enjoy the time at places without headaches and joint pain.  It really does make the evening (the whole day, really) much more enjoyable.

I munched on a few Pepitas as they came out of the oven.

How I Felt

Slight SLIGHT headache tonight.  I think I overdid it with the sweet treats... mainly the wassail.  Even though I only had 2 glasses of it, that is still a LOT of sugar in apple juice.  At least it was FRESH JUICED so there was NO added sugar, but still.  I'll have to be careful about that over the next few weeks.
