Turkey day is upon us. Try and not eat too much. I am trying for Turkey Tuesday, also, but it is questionable if we will make it there. For now I go one day at a time.
Thanks for everyone’s concern about my health. I am positive about the future now that I know what is wrong. Ginger tea and other ginger items help me get through the day. Eating frequently helps, too. The carrot ginger soup at the Coop dinner was great! I shall get the recipe from Julia. Soon I may even feel more like cooking. Of course we have to cook a turkey for Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t count. It is easy once you have done it once. Not so my first turkey. I knew nothing about what to do and had to call my mom and ask her. I was 19 or 20 and cooked primarily vegetarian, so a turkey was unknown. I got through it and it was good. Now I am working on a cornbread stuffing from scratch to avoid gluten and sweets too. No desserts for me this year. Sugar is off my diet. If I eat enough turkey and fixings, my thinking is I won’t need dessert. We shall see. Ask me next time you see me.
