It's 15 hours after Thanksgiving dinner and I still feel full.
I ate Turkey, I ate sweet potatoes with marshmallows, I ate winter sqush soup with gruyere croutons, asparagus, I ate TWO different kinds of stuffing (sausage, sage and chestnut - YUHUHUUUMM! And a traditional dried fruit stuffing), cranberry sauce, chocolate cake, pumpkin cheese cake, cookies and a chocolate turkey.
It's not natural for a human being to eat so much. And yet it felt so right.
I was like an episode of "man vs. food", only it was Mom vs. Turkey.
I'll never recover.
...I can't wait to eat the leftovers tonight. :)
