Thanksgiving Weekend Family Time

Started this morning off with a great dog walk with Little Kate and Lucy! We stumbled upon this cute Passionworks Christmas display at Armitage Park.

Kate and I stopped mom and dad's porch for a Grandpa breakfast!! The best.

That evening we had a fire pit in the front yard. Look at Felix watching for incoming guests!

Quarantine Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! This year, my family split up the work and delivered dishes to each other's households so we could all eat a complete Thanksgiving meal. I made cranberry sauce.

I also made Smitten Kitchen's Fairy Tale of New York syrup for cocktails. 

I also made Smitten Kitchen's pecan pie.

 With optional chocolate layer!


Ooooh look at that delicious gooey inside.

Dividing up pie for pie delivery!

I also made Smitten Kitchen's (are we sensing a theme here? lol) kale and caramelized onion stuffing.

We all cooked our own bacon-wrapped turkey breasts. My first time making anything like this!

Out delivering Thanksgiving meal components!

The bacon didn't stay wrapped very well, but the turkey DID taste delicious!! It was juicy and flavorful.

Ben and I shared a special rum barrel aged kombucha. Cheers!

Yum! With Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes + gravy from Mer and Mom! So delicious.

Pumpkin pie from Mer and chocolate cake from Vana!

Solo Stove!

Introducing my pandemic splurge, the Solo Stove! This has been tempting me in ads all over the internet and I finally ordered it. It's going to be fantastic for social distancing outdoors when the weather gets cold! We had mom and dad over for dinner on Friday for its inaugural fire.

I grilled salmon skewers, and Mom made a nice salad. Felix looooves salmon, so he had his eyes on the prize.

Tonight I had Summer over for cocktail and a fire pit. I love this little stove!!

He loved it!

What a happy boy!

I love him.
