Lil Update for you!

Well I haven't updated for awhile and it's because there's just nothing that exciting happening for me!

I had my first ever chiropractor experience last week. The place was a little too weird for me. Perhaps it's because I picked a place with "wellness" in the title and not just chiropractor. It smelled like lavender and all of the employees had smiles plastered on that seemed too "Stepford Wives" to me. The doctor I met with was very sweet and seemed very professional, but then afterward she said "we hug around here. Can I hug you?" It kinda weirded me out. I'm all about the hugging, but the whole scene was a little too hippy dippy for me. Plus they didn't have the best hours for my crazy schedule.

I'm gonna try a different place!

Other than that, same old same old. How about that crazy Biggest Loser last night? I am sure every viewer tuned in to watch the wrath of Vicky take place. I know I did! I am excited about Top Chef tonight.

I'm getting extra excited for Thanksgiving, one of my all-time favorite holidays. I love to eat and I love quality time with people.

Here's what else we have at our Thanksgiving (Teetsel clan):
Turkey, marinated in Williams-Sonoma brine stuff. Roz sent it a few years ago, and it made it so good we had to keep buying it.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

3-Corn Casserole (or Corn Souffle)

Stuffing. Devin likes oyster stuffing because he is weird (but kudos to Roz for raising an adventurous eater). My mom will probably make a little pot just for him because she favors Devin like you would not believe and he knows it.

Relish Tray

Rolls (made from Hot Roll Mix). They are scrumptious.


Plus I am bringing the most wonderful dessert of all time to my parents' house. It's called Pumpkin Pie Cake. It's Amanda's mom's recipe and it is absolutely the best dessert you will ever eat. Ever. I am salivating just thinking about it. I'll also make some pecan pie because Devin and my dad like it. It's low on my totem pole of desserts.

What do you guys have?

I really like the idea of a totem pole of desserts!

Oh goodness we are very traditional...turkey (Lots!) with stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, green bean casserole and GIANT rolls. Oh man, now I'm hungry! And we usually have pumpkin, cherry and apple pie...sometimes a cheesecake too!

I think I told you that Sam and Rachel are in charge of Thanksgiving this year. They are trying to be nice to "the pregnant lady"! I told them I'd help them out and make a couple dishes. I'm making a salad (boring), bread (boring), some very delicious mushroom dish (yum!) and of course....pumpkin pie cake. I bought all the fixin's for the cake today. I can't wait. And, yes, I will keep the vow to never share the recipe on my blog! It should be a very interesting Thanksgiving with my Phillipino sister-in-law (who's only celebrated 4 Thanksgivings) in charge. I'm excited!
