Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving week friends! As Thanksgiving day approaches, I am reminded of all I am thankful for. I’m thankful for my son, my husband, my family, my friends, the fact that I get to cook all the time and share my recipes with all of you. Cheese. Yes, I’m thankful for cheese, especially buratta. Oh and sriracha.

  • I am absolutely IN LOVE with this apron in blue from Anthropologie.
  • I have a confession to make. I’ve been listening to Christmas music for a week already. I am one of those people. What about you? Do you listen to a few carols, watch a few holiday movies or drink a few glasses of Egg Nog before Turkey Day? It’s ok…you can admit it. We’re all friends here.
  • For those of you that are watching Revolution are you loving it? I am totally loving it. It has action, suspense and even a few funny parts. However, I am seriously disappointed that NBC is giving the show a break from this month until MARCH. I personally think it’s a really bad move. I think they will lose the momentum. What about you?
  • Besides Mom and Dad, Kellan can say “clock” and “hot”. Currently…everything is “hot”. The stove is hot. The coffee cup is hot. Any food is hot. It’s pretty cute actually.
  • What are you looking forward to most on your Turkey Day table? Me? Mashed potatoes and gravy. I’m guessing I’ll be eating my weight in them. Happy Turkey Day indeed. :)

    So, I haven’t been listening to Christmas music yet but I am very excited to find the all Christmas radio station on Friday! I made your Chorizo Fried Quinoa again last night and I really think it is my new favorite quick and easy dinner. Can’t wait for the leftovers for lunch! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Revolution isn’t coming back until March???? NOOOOOOO! I’ve been keeping up with the NBC app on my ipad. Darn it, I was enjoying that show.
