Let the food coma begin...

Its thanksgiving night and my sister just seriously past around the table a bottle of baby aspirin! That is right friends, after a good 45 minute streak of inhaling potatoes, turkey, stuffing and enough gravy to float a boat in.  The Foodie family is in near comatose state!  It is worth it though...what could be more American than cooking for weeks just to sit down and inhale your hard labor in a matter of moments.

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.  Cuddling in the morning with my niece and nephew, a car ride in search of eggnog (accomplished - delicious & local!!), football (yes my dear Patriots had a slow start but brought home the win) and then a fantastic meal with family!!!  We are now sitting in the living room watching Dallas get humiliated by New Orleans, drinking wine and working up the strength for dessert! Homemade Apple pie by mama foodie and a pumpkin pie bought by me from Community Servings (one pie pays for feeding a local family in need).  

Since I am still in a food coma I thought I would just give you a run-down of a perfect Thanksgiving Day in VT.....

Good morning Papa!

Ching, Ching!!!

I did save room for salad

I am so thankful and lucky to have the chance to spend time with my family.  I hope you all are having as great a day as I am!  Tomorrow the family is off to Woodstock, VT to do some shopping and try out the local cuisine :)

How do you spend your post turkey day?

Happy Thanksgiving and GO PATS!
