I still wanted to make it special for our immediate family so I made french toast for breakfast. It tasted yummy and as always, my best compliment came from JOE who said "hmmm...yummy bed (bread) momma!"
Since J doesn't like egg yolk, I made him an egg white omelet. Sorry for the blurry picture. Was trying to also take care of JOE at the same time.
Later on that morning, I decided to make some meatpies since this pregnant momma was craving something "home" made as in my native food. Same thing happened with my last pregnancy. I craved foods I grew up with. I guess this baby is also intl spicy foods :-D.
I didn't have any potatoes on hand and also had mixed veggies as opposed to just peas and carrots. It still turned out YUMMY!
And here is mommy's little helper as always. She is going to be a professional chef by the time she is 5. I kid...I kid...I think :-D
She was really happy to be helping out.
JOE's job was to poke the holes in each pie. Doesn't it look really nice? "Dadda" had to help her though.
And then the pies went in the oven.
Tada! JOE showing her handy work :-).
It turned out just right and was delish!
JOE clapping for herself.
I also made some friend plantains to take with us to Thanksgiving dinner at my in laws.
The Saturday following Thanksgiving, I didn't feel like making breakfast so J took it upon himself to make me some scrambled eggs. Had it with some leftover french toast. YUMMY breakfast especially since my honey made it!
Then I got some much needed pampering. A manicure/pedicure. This momma could get used to this :-D.
Overall, it was a fun Thanksgiving celebration filled with MANY reasons to count my blessings.
Hope you're having a fabulous week so far!
