Happy Thanksgiving week!
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year. There’s always so much good food to eat and it’s always socially acceptable to go for seconds, thirds… Everyone seems to be in a good mood and it feels like the official kick off to the Christmas season (even though I put up my tree last week, shhh). This will be the third year in a row where I am going to a restaurant for Thanksgiving. This concept was foreign to me before I met Daniel but it’s his family’s tradition. They go to this cute New England inn where there’s a big buffet with carving stations. My family has actually hijacked this event in recent years and I think more of my family is going this year than his. The best part is, no preparation or clean up. But the downside? No leftovers.
I hope all of you have the best Thanksgiving possible. Please share your plans, traditions, or favorite recipes in the comments!
