Wow, it’s been a good eating week but honestly I am so over the food. Feed me greens and eggs for the next week please.
I love Thanksgiving food but honestly it loses it’s appeal pretty fast, I feel like everything competes for more fat and more salt. This year’s dinner was declared the tastiest in several years though and I had a blast cooking up a storm with my sister. There are two dishes that I want to share with you in the coming weeks, goat cheese and mushroom stuffed delicata squash and miso-lemon green beans. But for now I am so over the food.
Just like the last two years Tate and I spent Thanksgiving at my sister and brother-in-laws in the hills of West Virginia. (2010 post, 2011 post) My long weekend was a nice balance of family, friends, activity (went on two great runs and danced my ass off at the bar Saturday night ), cooking, and lounging.
The next two weeks are crunch time before I get to get back into the holiday spirit. Only 4 more classes of the semester at the college where I teach! This means I better get my act together and figure out the final exam I’m giving my students next week…
I have a show coming up too!
If you celebrated Thanksgiving I hope it was your best yet!
