A day late and a few dollars short…(that whole unemployment thing, ya know)…but it is never too late to give thanks! We had a non-traditional holiday yesterday, and it was wonderful. We slept in and even the baby slept most of the night, too. Aaah! Then we grabbed breakfast in the car on the way to town for the “Sweating Gravy Turkey Trot” 5K fun run/walk. It stopped raining, and the sun peaked out. It was a delightful time! The girls dragged a bit in the middle, but ultimately did the entire thing. M-Man lounged in style in his stroller for the out and back. And three of our door prize tickets were drawn, which was pretty cool, especially given that we only had 4!
After that, we relaxed at home. Coloring, watching football, cooking. We had a Thai stir-fry with caribou backstrap, soba noodles and broccoli for our Thanksgiving meal. Very non-traditional, but it fit for us yesterday! I couldn’t totally leave out the cranberries or pie, though, so I made a Cranberry Nantucket Pie. While not a true substitute for pie, it was yummy. I think we’ll have turkey in a week or two, and I’ll make a pumpkin pie then with the pumpkin I roasted last week.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
