Thanksgiving Tease

November 19, 2014

I planned for a successful week this week, and so far things are really going well.

I planned out my meals for the week on Sunday and I did my grocery shopping,

I am continuing on my 100 Miles in November Challenge, AND I’m getting in some awesome Yoga classes!

I’m keeping myself busy while I’m at home and staying out of the kitchen!

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I work at my friends food truck throughout the week. Her food is really awesome, and that can be a real challenge for me sometimes.  I took this first week of November off, and since then it’s just been to cold for the propane to cooperate, so we haven’t been working. That means that I have not been tempted by her delicious food, but that also means more time at home, and there are days that that can be really difficult, but I’ve done a really good job of staying in control this week.

So far, so good!


As I was dressing for Yoga yesterday, I pulled out a fairly new black tank top that I really like. It has ruching down the sides, and it’s extra long. It’s super soft and has a perfect neck line. For some reason I looked at the tag.

It’s a MATERNITY top!

That’ll boost your ego!


I don’t care. It’s comfy and I’m keeping it!

Somebody was right in my face while I was having coffee on the couch yesterday morning! She likes to lick the air of my morning breath! I’m not even kidding.



Okay, enough shenanigans. Here are yesterday’s eats!

We had a little Thanksgiving Tease for dinner, and it was delicious!

Butternut Stuffed Turkey Tenderloin with Cranberries and Pecans

First of all, the turkey tenderloins I purchased were HUGE!!!! This is ONE of them before I baked them, stuffed with all the stuff.



Mine were not near as pretty as the ones on the skinnytaste website.



I cut them in half for one serving. Um, did I say they were HUGE?



I had plenty of leftover fresh cranberries, so I made a little sauce to add to the top of our turkey tenderloins.



Mike could not stop talking about how good dinner was! We both really enjoyed our Thanksgiving tease dinner!
