|Leftover Thanksgiving vegetables and mashed sweet potatoes at breakfast today.|
I smiled when I weighed myself today -- 181.6 pounds, exactly what I weighed on Thursday before our big Thanksgiving meal.
I helped roast turkey parts and heat up a fully cooked Niman Ranch ham for the meat-eaters in the family.
They also had store-bought corn-and-crab chowder and homemade brown rice and peas.
But I was happy with a meatless meal of salad, vegetables (carrots and green beans), and Black Tiger shrimp.
Another side dish was mashed, skin-on sweet potatoes and garlic cloves with extra-virgin olive oil, butter substitute, maple syrup and cinnamon.
I drank sparkling 100% Apple Cider from Spain mixed with lemon-lime seltzer to cut the sweetness, and a glass or two of Bordeaux.

Later, with my teenage son, I watched a football game on TV. I also watched a Robert De Niro movie, "Being Flynn."
For dessert, I had Spanish clementines and a ripe Bartlett pear with a couple of slices of reduced-fat cheese.
For breakfast this morning, I fried two organic eggs sunny side up with sun-dried tomatoes and Aleppo red pepper, and slid them over leftover vegetables and sweet potatoes, which I reheated in the microwave.
Delicious, especially the yolks broken over and eaten with the mashed sweet potatoes.
