Greetings! What’s for breakfast?
^^ Mitchell’s Deli bagel sandwich! Best way to kick off the weekend. Plus hot (decaf) coffee to warm up after a brisk Saturday morning walk!
I met up with a few members from Team Beef for some miles in Shelby Park. They ran, I strolled.
My second workout of the day: Cooking up a storm! We hosted our fifth annual friendsgiving dinner on Saturday night with a handful of other couples.
On the menu: All the Thanksgiving fixins’, including TURKEY! We went for a 19-pounder this year and named her Glenda.
Everyone brought side dishes to share and I filled in a few gaps to round out the menu. Kale/apple/goat cheese/radish salad:
A loaf of fresh bread:
And an apple pie! My oven was working overtime this weekend. This was the first apple pie I’ve ever made — thanks to Smitten Kitchen for the guidance. My friend Hannah brought the pumpkin pie and I had slices of both for good measure
Here’s the final lineup — what a feast!
Shout out to Anthony for being the turkey carving master. Cutting the turkey in front of ten people can be intimidating, but he handled the pressure like a pro 😉
This plate was just a warm-up for Thursday! My family Thanksgiving will have 28 people attending, so get ready for even MORE food photos later this week.
Off to get this (short) week started and drink a delicious bottle of bright orange glucose before my next doctor’s appointment. Yummy!
