Happy Thanksgiving....

I get to cook but I love it.

The trouble is my Mom and Sister are here and can't have dairy and dairy does not bother me. So I have to make double of all the items with dairy in them. It makes some extra work but I guess I will survive.  :)  I could make them a batch with their soy milk I guess.

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving to All!!! I was so sick a month ago, I thought I would never be able to pull off Thanksgiving, but I am feeling better, plugged away at things every free day, and somehow, I am actually way ahead of the game. Almost all of the work is DONE. The house is clean, most of the food is cooked and in the freezer, even the potatoes are peeled. I just have to brine the turkey tonight and do some last minute stuff and cooked the big bird tomorrow. I may actually get to enjoy Thanksgiving for the first time since I was a kid. WOW!

Enjoy Everyone!

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

I didn't write this . . . don't know who did . . .but it made me laugh.

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
