I had the best Thanksgiving and I hope you did, too. I started things off right with a pumpkin cronut on Wednesday morning. The flaky layers! The pumpkin pie filling!
After work we drove to the west side of Michigan and saw several people pulled over for speeding and one car on fire in the median. I hope everyone was ok, but I like that you never know what’s going to go down on a holiday weekend. Did I ever tell you about the time two guys almost got into a fist fight over our table at a restaurant? I think of it EVERY Thanksgiving now. The roads were clear and the traffic wasn’t bad at all. We ate dinner out and went to bed reasonably early . And we woke up to a white Thanksgiving.
My sister-in-law asked that I arrive early to help with dinner, aka, she didn’t want to touch the raw turkey. While we chopped, peeled and I wiggled a frozen turkey neck out of the cavity (thankfully the rest of the turkey had thawed), Marc was trying to find a way to get the Lions football game on tv because their antennae didn’t get the station. He eventually found a way and it was time for us to make our way to snacks.
Old school appetizers by mom and the most colorful Thanksgiving plate. All of the hard work paid off and it was delicious. We had to wait a long time before even thinking about dessert.
The next day my mom and I went downtown and I had the best latte at Lemonjello’s. My mom tried on a million things at one store, but the nicest lady helped us and made it fun. Mom ended up with 2 pairs of leggings. We shared a sub for lunch, even if I wasn’t sure I was hungry.
After shopping and a sub, I needed a brisk walk. Nobody else was in the mood, so I went on a solo snowy walk. It was beautiful.
The rest of the weekend included movies, more lattes, more food and a great game of Taboo. I hope you had a nice weekend, too!
