Turkey Cupcakes… Gobbled in record time!

So I’m really only starting to get into this whole “blogging” trend, so pardon the fact that Thanksgiving was months ago!… I didn’t know how to blog back then!

So the morning started with our annual Turkey Trot 5 miler. I love the Turkey Trot for the simple fact that somehow by running 5 miles in the morning it excuses the mass amounts of Turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, wine, veggies, more wine, rolls, pumpkin pie, and sweet potato pie that one can stuff into their body!


With the race under my belt I made my back to the kitchen to fight for my counter space! If you have two cooks in your house you know where I’m coming from!!!

I found my own little nook to work in, but somehow I was scammed into peeling potatoes first? And then somehow I was booted out all together, and resorted to the kitchen table…

Not a whole lot of space, but I made it work! Yes, I know the main course takes priority, but with so many people coming over I felt the biggest priority should be making sure that every one knew where to sit! And thus we have name tags at the table!


The turkeys took a lot of time, but everyone was more than impressed with their very own edible name tag and turkey.


The food was great, wine was a plenty, and the company of fellow runners makes this one of my favorite meals of the year! And to be clear, I was indeed caught several times while sitting at the table…admiring my own work. Gobble Gobble.
