Last weekend, my parents and Zach’s parents visited us. Little did they know they’d be painting the kitchen and installing an over-the-counter microwave and under-the-counter-toaster-oven. Major thanks to moms and dads.
Next up, the annual AKC dog show that comes on every year after the Macy’s Parade on Thanksgiving. Wendy LOVED watching the “Teddies” and we listened to her squeal “Teddy!” as she pointed at the TV for about 20 minutes. Sorry the pictures are so bright…don’t know what happened there:
We had a non-traditional Thanksgiving meal, but a similar one to what we had a few years ago when we did Thanksgiving on our own. We had grilled mahi mahi and asparagus, garlicky cranberry chutney, butternut squash, and cranberry orange bread.
Wendy wasn’t able to stay awake long enough to have any of this. She got some leftover squash tonight, though! Our dessert was Irish sharp cheddar cheese with papaya, starfruit, and pear.
Looks yummy, right? It was. I’m glad we were able to enjoy giving thanks today together. Zach and I don’t get to spend much face to face time since he has so much to do as a 2nd-year professor and I’m always chasing Wendy. It was really nice to be able to cook and eat together!
