I wasn’t able to add pictures to yesterdays post but for the sake of my own record keeping I’m going to put them up now!
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!
