Thanksgiving in 3 Parts: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

While most families celebrate Thanksgiving all together in one gigantic feast, my meal this year was broken down into several smaller parts.


Since we were all so busy this weekend, I decided to meet my cousin, his beautiful lady & little princess for a thanksgiving diner breakfast.

I ordered 2 poached eggs, wheat toast & tomatoes with some pan-fried potatoes that were too tasty to pass up.

Alexis opted for sunny side up…

With a side of pac man (courtesy of her crazy aunt). Ahem…I swear I’m not a bad influence.


Next up was a delicious Thanksgiving lunch at Mrs. Mitchell’s, a self-proclaimed granny-inspired restaurant that serves up hot tea and homestyle meals with a gourmet twist. Their Thanksgiving lunch menu was chock full of delicious brunch and lunch options.

I chose a grilled chicken salad with mango dressing, goat’s cheese, candied pecans, strawberries & red onions….

With a side of supersweet corn on the cob just because…


Everybody knows what a Thanksgiving dinner looks like so I decided not to snap a zillion pictures of our feast. I will say though that my gluten-free stuffing was an excellent addition to the meal 😉

No doubt the best part was getting to spend it with my beautiful friend-family. Like my handsome bestie Ryan (who also chose our soundtrack for the day…Wilson Phillips anyone?)

Okay fiiiiine maybe one food pic….this homemade gluten free coconut-milk-based pumpkin pie made my life…obviously. 

Traditional or no, my holiday weekend was perfect because it was perfect for me.
