I'm stuffed...  
...We just came back from my uncle's house and a whole day of eating. :P I think that I should probably take some time to visit Curves next week with all this eating that I've been doing. :P

Mark doesn't have to work tomorrow (luck guy!) but I do so the entire day yesterday he was walking around saying, "It feels like a Friday!" :P Uh huh... ;) I guess I have more than my share of days off that he doesn't get so I shouldn't complain, but I never rub it in. ;)

It should be a slow day at work tomorrow - everyone will probably be across the street from us at the mall taking advantage of the big sales. My co-worker is off and at home on the neighbor island for the holiday so it'll just be me and my boss. I doubt that anything major will be happening, and I'm glad since I'm really not in the mood to go to work. :P

And instead of doing an "I'm Thankful For..." list, I'd thought I'd do more of a "Things that made me happy this Thankgiving..." list.
  • Sydney is still here with us and healthy enough to bark at the neighbor's lunch guests all day long. ;)
  • Seeing my family (both sides) and spending time (that we don't usually have) talking with them. :)
  • Ted's Bakery Chocolate Cream Pie :)
  • My alarm clock that didn't wake me up at 4am this morning.
  • Wonderful holiday emails and e-cards from my online friends. :)
  • Watching Kevin's finished video with the audio track finally in sync with the video - thanks MARK! :)
  • And last, but certainly not least, getting to spend the whole, wonderful day with Mark & Sydney. :)
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I have so much turkey left over that I'll probably be eating turkey sandwiches for a week! Since we rarely eat turkey, anyone have any good recipes for left over turkey besides the traditional sandwich?

Jook! *LOL* Well I like eating turkey and of course Jook. I have a recipe for that if you wanted.

I'm glad you had a great thanksgiving! Good to hear what you were thankful for!

Forgot about that! Great recipe for turkey. :) I think my Mom has a recipe for that, but if she doesn't could I get back to you?

Thanks, Rayna! Hope you had a nice one as well! :) Take care! :)

Re: sounds yummy
I'd love to Fed-Ex some to you, Smitha! I have so much! Unfortunately, it may not fly with Fed-Ex. :( And I'll go and check out the links that you mentioned. :) I love Food Network, you guys don't get it up there? That's almost a crime! ;) Hope you have a nice weekend! Please take care! :) BTW, I love your new icon photo, but you look like you're freezing cold!

Re: sounds yummy
I know..that's what I told my sis when I came here to find no food channgel :( think it's only the USA you enjoy a hundred channels each depicting one of our favorite passtimes. They have the travel channel, so at least something!

yeah.. that was the first time I played in snow! it was a blast! it was at the national convention in tulsa back in 02, the whole Hawaii delegation was out running and playing like kids! :D some reason everyone guessed we were from Hawaii...don't know what gave it away!

Re: sounds yummy
Oh that was from National Convention! :) Looks like fun and Gee...wonder how everyone knew we were the Hawaii delegation! ;) Great photo! :)

I'm glad to hear that you had a nice Thanksgiving. :) Up to now I never ate turkey. Does it smell like chicken?
Take care please and I hope you'll have a nice day. :) *Hugs*
Sherishutterbug93 on November 28th, 2003 06:26 am (UTC)
That's interesting that you've not had turkey up until now, though I have to admit that I'm not much of a turkey eater myself. I think it might have a little more "gamey" smell than chicken and the taste is a little more distinct (chicken is more nondescript, I think).

Hope the weather's gotten better for you and that it stopped raining. :) Please take care and *HUGS* to you! :)

It sounds like a fun day at your uncle's house! I'll go to Curves with you...

I am a bit at a loss on what to do with all the turkey. But then, I only like the way it tastes on Thanksgiving itself and then in sandwiches. I'm not wild about the taste when I've made soup or casseroles with the leftovers.
Sherishutterbug93 on November 28th, 2003 06:36 pm (UTC)
We had a lot of fun! But boy did we eat! :P I took a bunch of left overs to work today and about 3/4 of the people up there were eating turkey sandwiches for lunch! Still haven't decided what to do with all my trukey yet, but I'm looking for a recipe! :)
Mrs Beanshuman_beans on November 28th, 2003 06:44 pm (UTC)
I just finished dinner & we had Thanksgiving dinner all over again. Now all I have is the turkey carcass. I have been known to make turkey friend rice. Otherwise, I don't know that I can face turkey again so soon.
Sherishutterbug93 on November 28th, 2003 07:10 pm (UTC)
Turkey fried rice...hmmm...that's an idea! ;) Thanks, Rita! :)
Mrs Beanshuman_beans on November 29th, 2003 09:41 am (UTC)
My mom said she never has turkey on Thanksgiving anymore but definitely on Christmas. She uses the stock for New Year's ozoni (or is that ozone) -- *drool* I wanna go to my mom's for New Year's!
Sherishutterbug93 on November 29th, 2003 09:53 am (UTC)
Gosh I LOVE ozoni! My Mom makes a killer batch every year! :) It's one of my favorite parts about New Year! :)
Mrs Beanshuman_beans on November 29th, 2003 12:17 pm (UTC)
My mom makes a killer batch too. My mom is a fantastico cook! Do you know how to make ozoni? I don't. :/
Sherishutterbug93 on November 29th, 2003 06:12 pm (UTC)
I tried to make my Mom's recipe once, but its just not the same! :(
irisheyes77 on November 28th, 2003 09:44 am (UTC)
Even with all that's been going on, it sounds like you still have a lot to be thankful for! :)
That pie must have REALLY been good for it to even make your list!
Sherishutterbug93 on November 28th, 2003 06:39 pm (UTC)
:D The pie was so good that it couldn't NOT make my list! ;) And I was glad to hear that you had a nice Thanksgiving as well and that your Dad was able to enjoy himself and spend some time with all of you. Please take care of yourself! And please go to see the doctor! I'm very worried about you. :( *HUGS*

Sherishutterbug93 on November 28th, 2003 06:40 pm (UTC)
Awwww Stacey, you're SO sweet! Glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving too! :) Please take care!

Thanks, Carrie! :) I hardly ever get to see my family so it's really nice to just get together with them. :) Hope you're having a nice long weekend! :) *HUGS*
