Eat healthy at the holiday season

How was your Thanksgiving celebration?  For me, it is always fun to cook and share the Thanksgiving meal with those I love.  This year I got to do it twice! We had a pre-turkey day meal a few weeks ago since my oldest son and his wife were spending Thanksgiving day with her family on the east coast.  Yesterday, I prepared the entire meal over for my younger son and his girlfriend before they took off in the Sprinter for a holiday trip to Banff Alberta.

As you can see, there was a lot of food!  My plate was filled with juicy turkey, sage herb  bread dressing, Yukon gold mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, Brussels sprouts gratin and dried cherry cranberry sauce.  I held back on eating too many appetizers so I could have two desserts.  The pumpkin creme brulee and brownie with homemade maple ice cream were both topped with candied pecans. Move back to moderation after a day of excessive holiday eating.

This evening I am going to make noodle soup with the leftover broth, turkey meat and vegetables-yum!  I feel a cold coming on and the soup will be medicinal.
