How was your weekend? Ours started and ended slow but Saturday was a busy one!Anthony and I were out bright and early for a long-ish run. We “only” did 9 miles which would have been a joke during marathon training… but now that race day is long gone, 8-10 miles feels just right for a weekend jog It’s finally getting cold in Nashville (boo), but it was still a beautiful day to be outside.Anthony and I basically had the park to ourselves which meant we could stop and take a sweaty selfie and nobody would judge.Done!When we got home I cooked up an omelet, which takes a few more minutes than scrambled eggs but seems fancier to eat somehow. Agree? Disagree?And then I headed to the grocery store to stock up on Thanksgiving ingredients! Lots of food to chop and cook for our 4th annual friendsgiving feast. This year we named our bird Terry and she was quite tasty.We set the table for eight people in total — including one little guest On the menu:
- Turkey “the Michagander way” & gravy (thanks for loaning me your gravy boat, Mom!)
- Cranberry-orange sauce
- Balsamic roasted carrots & parnsnips
- Roasted brussel sprouts
- Mashed sweet potatoes
- Cranberry apple stuffing
- Plus a fall salad, mac ‘n’ cheese, and stuffed potatoes brought by our friends!
Everyone went back for seconds!
And then dessert. I’ve been obsessed with Jamie Oliver’s pumpkin pie recipe this year. This was the third time I’ve made it in three weeks! (I just make the filling and use a basic/non-GF crust recipe or a store-bought GF crust instead)
Whipped cream + Tracee’s homemade ice cream on the side Friendsgiving #4: success! I slept like a champ on Saturday night and spend a lot of time on Sunday eating leftovers and napping. But eventually I got off the couch and went outside! It was too beautiful out there to stay indoors all day.Anthony and I were going to just go for a walk but it was so cold out that we decided to run instead. Must keep moving! Five miles. Good way to finish off the weekend.And now it’s time for a short week!
