Kickin’ back in front of the fire, doing a little reading, a little writing, oh yeah, it’s NICE! Nathan just came home, John and A are running a few errands, I fit in a gorgeous walk over by Lake Calhoun – one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday. This weather, come on, it’s almost obscene! Three days in a row I’ve been out walking in a t-shirt and sweats. At the end of November! I keep feeling like the other shoe is about to drop…but until then, I’m out and in it and totally enjoying myself.
Back from the store, my stepdaughter created several adorable little tasties out of the American Girl Tiny Treats Cookbook (great holiday gift idea). Such a clever little book! It’s packed with pretty, mini, and easy-to-prepare-and-clean-up treats. Tonight we sampled a teeny birthday cake, ice cream cone, and milkshake.
As for me, I’ve done zero – and I mean zero – cooking the last couple of days. One major perk of making Thanksgiving dinner for only four people – leftovers, of course. I haven’t had Thanksgiving leftovers for years, in fact, I can’t remember the last time. Delicious, even two days in, still delicious. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll make a turkey curry salad, throw in some walnuts and dried cranberries. Stay tuned…
