Turkey Hangovers and a Giveaway

Soon to be no pie.
Afternoon Readers,

Q: What do you get when one woman eats her body weight in pudding and mashed potatoes?

A: A lot of smeared mascara and motivation to do absolutely nothing of merit. Be glad this blog doesn't lean heavily on pictures of the author, because I walked by the mirror this morning and swore I'd seen more pulled together looks on animals still inhabiting the vicinity of Chernobyl.

So, the name of the game is recovery today, but that doesn't mean I can't contribute to the madness of Black Friday, from the confines of the Split level, safely eating the rest of the pie. As it happens, At Least My Belly Hides My Cankles now has a matte cover.

"But, Paige, what does this mean for me? And why are you distracting me with stupid sentences when I could be laying on the couch with a fork and the last of the stuffing?"

I'll tell you.

First of all, it means that if you have a Cankles with a shiny cover, you're now the proud (maybe) owner of a limited edition book.

Secondly, it means I'm giving away a copy here on the blog this weekend. Keep it for yourself, give it to a friend for Christmas or Hanukkah, use it as a cooling rack for pies just out of the oven.*

I'm sorry this news isn't more exciting. I was going to give you the last of the apple cider too, but I poured it over cinnamon whiskey and drank the whole thing last night. Such is life. I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday, but now's the time for pulling the baby out from under the coffee table and brewing the afternoon coffee.

*Pie may also melt and adhere to cover of book. However, this may contribute positively to the reading/eating experience. If it works out, feel free to trademark the "Pie Book". I know it's my idea, but I don't have the energy to see it through to the end.

Until Next Time, Readers!

    1. I'm flattered it's on your list! Even if you don't win it, perhaps I can send some leftover chocolate to make up for it.

  2. Pie. Pie, and pie. My three favorite things about yesterday. Oh, and the fact that my inlaws have all left.

    1. The only thing that comes close to trumping pie is mashed potatoes and gravy. Then again, it's pie I'm always looking for at 3am, so I'll let you be the judge.

  3. My favorite leftovers are the turkey, sweet potatoes, the stuffing, the cranberries, and the pie. I would say the wine, but there is no leftover wine. We just might have gone through the whole liquor cabinet. That is why I need a nap today.

    1. I'm proud of you for going through the whole liquor cabinet, but I'm prouder that you're classier than me and have a liquor cabinet. "Grab that vodka off the top of the fridge," just doesn't have the same ring to it.

  4. I sadly have no leftovers, but if I did, it would for sure be the turkey. Or the wine. Probably the wine.

    1. No leftovers means it was a fabulous Thanksgiving, so I'd say you're already a winner.

  5. Mashed potatoes and gravy. And butter, got to have the butter.

  6. My favorite leftovers are the chile. I am from southern New Mexico and we can't have Thanksgiving without chile. And I would love a copy :)

    1. Chile sounds delightful. And now I feel like I need to add it to next year's menu.

  7. Normally I would say the stuffing but there wasn't any left over this year. A terrible lack of foresight on my part...

    1. There's always next year to buy ten boxes of Stove Top and make a real day of it. Good luck, my friend. Good luck.

  8. Leftovers? I finished the pumpkin roll before bed. And the rice krispy treats. Hey, don't judge, there was one lonely little one (ok, big) and he was lonely. I sent him in to find a friend from lunch. :D That's the kind of pal I am.

    1. I haven't had a pumpkin roll in ages. Salivating over here. Where are all the giveaways where I can win a pumpkin roll?

  9. Hmmm...just ate the rest of our turkey leftovers today! And there's pumpkin pie for later!

    1. There's always a little bit of sadness when the last of the turkey is gone. But pie soothes a lot of ills.
