Well, I’m not going to lie, this week was ALL about Thanksgiving. I’m kind of looking forward to eating healthy again. Those holiday parties are going to come up fast!
Christmas tree at work
Thanksgiving dinner #1 – this was at Dave’s aunt’s house on Thursday
The inevitable wrestling between Dave and his dad
I made a pecan pie! I even made my crust from scratch. It was tasty, although the crust on the bottom was hard to cut through. I’ll have to work on that.
There were three pies, cheesecake tartlets, and pumpkin bread (not pictured) for seven of us. No biggie.
We played Yahtzee…
… and pencil fighting. We keep it classy.
I had to work on Friday, and there was a nifty sun glare in the sky.
Friday was also “Take Your Pez to Work Day!” I borrowed mine from Bex.
Driving home (early!), I remembered I’ll have to avoid the main drag after work for the next couple of weeks. Bright Nights clogs traffic like woah.
I got to meet up with my Ravelry friend K Saturday morning. She was down in Western Mass from Toronto, visiting friends for Turkey Day. We were roommates in Rhinebeck, so it was nice to catch-up in person again!
Thanksgiving dinner #2 – at my aunt’s house on Saturday (best ham EVER, no lie)
A new method of digesting?
Pumpkin Cheesecake Gingersnap Tart – pretty yummy! (And apparently sideways, oops! Oh well, it’s a circle, so it looks the same either way, right?)
Happy December, friends! Stay warm and full.
