A 60-degree weekend... it was lovely. We spent lots of time outside, hiking, laughing, crunching leaves beneath our feet and breathing in the fall weather. This was the first nice weekend since... September! And, we enjoyed it.
We even took a trip to the farmer's market, where we ordered ourselves a Thanksgiving turkey! Yes, that's right... I'm cooking a turkey this year. It will be the first time that Frog Prince and I are celebrating Thanksgiving just the two of us... and I'm looking forward to cooking.
Last week, we should have fired up the BBQ... oh, wait, we'd have to have one first :) Instead, we enjoyed:
(my hubby's new favorite)
(with apple topping)
(which was devoured at Life Group)
(a healthy twist on a familiar favorite)
This week, we're traveling to visit my family and we're celebrating an early Thanksgiving and really early Christmas with them, as we won't be back to visit until.... we don't know when. I'm looking forward to cooking with my family this week, so our meal plan is still a little up in the air at this point.
