Hello and happy belated Thanksgiving! I can’t believe it’s been four days since I last posted. I have approximately 129382093810290 photos to share… but the break felt good. Here’s what we were up to for the holiday!
Thursday morning I met up with Katie for a pre-turkey run. Even though the sun was juuuust coming up when we met, I could tell it was going to be a gorgeous day.The streets were weirdly empty during our jog around East Nashville. I guess normal people sleep in on days off of work but crazy people like myself and my friends like to wake up at 5:30 just because we’re crazy.What am I thankful for this year? The abundance of street furniture that surprises me no matter what route I take.Eight miles, done! After the run I showered up, put on real clothes, and popped a loaf of bread in the oven. It’d been rising while I ran :). Then I delivered it to my brother’s new house, fresh out of the oven! Because nothing smells more like home than a big loaf of bread. At noon my whole family + another family we celebrate with every year headed out for a turkey day feast. Typically we do a giant fried turkey extravaganza at my parents’ house (recaps here and here), but everyone’s schedules are so crazy this year that we all decided to go out instead. Destination: Adele’s!
Going out for Thanksgiving was a fun change (and a lot better than the pizza buffet Anthony and I did a few years back). Adele’s had a giant buffet of awesomeness:
That featured everything from cranberry-kale salad to fire-roasted turkey. So much food.Look at them smoking. Yum!My plate was piled pretty high and I had no problem polishing it off. My favorite part was actually in the bowl beside it: butternut squash soup!Thanksgiving 2015 was a success! The best part was doing absolutely 0.0000 dishes afterwards, too
After an epic nap, we walked off our turkey and taters with a stroll around Opry Mills. What can I say. I live for the Black Friday rush.Off to enjoy our last day of this break! See you tomorrow!
