Happy Turkey Day everyone.

This year we are miles and miles away from home. So it's just the two of us. We bought all the fixings, I planned a menu for two, and I dug out all the holiday recipes.

BAM. I am sick. Like a dog sick. Like not even wanting to roll off the couch sick. So as I am typing the hubby is in the kitchen playing in my brand new pots and pans making my favorite holiday happen. I do love that man.

I haven't even turned on the computer until now. I am so tired. UGH! And to make things worse, I have to get up and go to the office tomorrow. Someone stick a fork in me, I am done.

I am off to cuddle back in the covers. I hope everyone has eaten some great food, visited with family and friends, and gets their game on.

Oh, here's my favorite recipe.
