Thanksgiving 2012

Hunny Bunny and I had a fishy Thanksgiving this year.

I’ve been eating a Pescetarian diet for about 6 weeks now.

**Pescetarianism
Pescetarianism ( /ˌpɛskɨˈtɛəriən/) (also spelled pescatarianism) is the practice of a diet that includes seafood but not the flesh of other animals. A pescetarian diet shares many of its components with a vegetarian diet and includes vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, beans, eggs, and dairy, but unlike a vegetarian diet also includes fish and shellfish.

It started out as a diet (which I successfully dropped 15 pounds In about 6 weeks, and it has been the easiest diet I have ever been on!) but has turned into a lifestyle. So much so, that Hunny Bunny obliged me with a Trout and Clam Thanksgiving. I think it’s sweet of him but my mom would say its because ‘He doesn’t want to be married to a tubby.’
Whatever the reason, it was delicious and Hunny Bunny gets a happy wife which gives him a happy life and little extras ;)!!

Half the fun of our dinner was going to Pikes Market the night before to get our seafood and veggies.

It was a pretty great day, but would’ve been perfect if the kids were home.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
