|Making Chex Mix (also acceptable for breakfast since, you know, it's cereal)|
We hosted on Thanksgiving Day; there were 16 of us, including members of both our families and some friends (framily) as well. Enter obligatory food pictures.
|Besides the obvious: amazing squash soup made by our niece Jackie; the stuffing had bacon and apples in it; sauteed carrots and onions are a favorite at our dinner.|
We also make the kids pose for pictures. I'll have more, but here's one from my phone of my mom and her grandchildren.
Here's the best story of our Thanksgiving. A guy showed up at our door and said that he's a baker and that earlier he stopped by and took some rosemary from the community garden and to say thanks he brought us a loaf of bread. I was so stunned and I managed to say thank you and Happy Thanksgiving but I should have gotten more information or asked him to come inside or something. So if anyone knows a guy named Matt who's a baker and has a beard (or did on Thursday), let me know.
|I hope you get an idea of how big this loaf of bread was, and it was fantastically delicious!|
Friday we went over to my mom's to hang out with her and the kids and her cat Coco, who was a stray in our neighborhood that my mom adopted last winter.
Saturday involved lots of football watching and a neighborhood Friendsgiving at Jen and Jason's house.
|One of the fun cocktail napkins of the day; the boys played football, but Amy's comment was "it's no Kennedy compound game."|
Sunday was church, singing, napping ... even though Gato and Clover tried to block my couch time.
Now it's time to get some work done and perhaps some cyber-Monday shopping!
