As you read this, I have already eaten THREE Thanksgiving dinners! And there is another pending. I have already gotten out my fat pants and am attempting to accept that I will have to work out extra in between now and Christmas. But I cannot turn down this delicious food. I just don’t have the mental strength.

I am not cooking this year. Instead, I will show you the dinner I would prepare. It’s glorious.
