How’s everyone feeling after the Great Feast of 2012? I’ve had food hangover for two days now. I ate way more food than one should ever put in their body, but that’s what Turkey Day is all about, right?
It’s also about being thankful, and this year, I couldn’t be more thankful for this website and the wonderful people who read and comment on it. Thank you for stopping by everyday to see what’s on the menu.
Speaking of which, you may have missed a bite or two this week with the holidays and what not. Plus, I didn’t have a Weekender last weekend, so we’ve got extra catching up to do. Without further ado…
Let’s review, shall we?

Phew, aren’t you glad you didn’t miss any of that deliciousness? It was quite an indulgent two weeks, especially after Turkey Day. I think we’ll all be in need of a new Healthy Cookie recipe on Monday!
But before heading back to our healthy diets, let us take a moment to relive the sheer decadence that was Turkey Day. As you know, I don’t eat the turkey, but the rest of my family does. I’m perfectly satisfied with the cornucopia of side dishes like…
This incredible Sweet Potato Casserole I’ve had every Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember…
A special homemade Green Bean Casserole coming your way soon…
And this decadent stove-top mac & cheese also coming soon.
We also had Pumpkin Cornbread (coming soon), mashed potatoes with a twist (coming soon), stuffing, and of course, the deep fried turkey (which was NOT on my plate).
There was so much wondrous food that I couldn’t even get it all on my plate at once. This right here is merely round one.
And of course, we capped the night with homemade pumpkin pie, Smart Cookie-style of course. The recipe for that divine pie will be up in the coming weeks along with all that other mouth-watering food.
After cooking AND eating all that, I was worn out. In fact, I headed straight for my bed for a nap after. Apparently, Turkey Day was quite exhausting for the kittens too.
How was your Turkey Day? I want to hear all about it!
Now that Thanksgiving is passed, we’re diving headfirst into Christmas at the Smart Cookie household. I decorated my tree today, and got to hang my brand new cookie ornament. How appropriate!
