A few years ago, the hubs and I decided we'd just make a plate and when we finish that plate, we're done. That helps avoid the turkey coma for sure! Plus that gives us plenty of room for dessert hehe This year I made cheesecake -- white chocolate with a chocolate graham crust -- instead of anything pumpkin because 1. I had all the ingredients, and 2. I'm not that huge a fan of pumpkin.
I know, between not liking pumpkin, chocolate + peanut butter, mac and cheese, or bacon, I'm totally going to lose my green card and be asked to leave the country.
By the way, can you tell my MIL loves snowmen? Heehee!
