weekend wrap up: thanksgiving!

November 29, 2009 in BF,food,holidays,Syracuse

I am in a word: Sad. Our long Thanksgiving weekend was great, but it always ends too soon. He left about an hour ago to drive back to Ohio and now I’m sitting here watching Mr. & Mrs. Smith, budgeting and doing bills, and stalking some Cyber Monday deals.

Sigh.
Anyways, our first Thanksgiving alone was fantastic! The twice-baked potatoes, well, turned into mashed potatoes. And I accidentally put out the fire in the smoker (that was supposed to smoke the turkey)… oops! So we didn’t eat until around 8:45 PM, but it was delicious! And now I have wayyyy too many leftovers!

{our feast}


We did a lot of sleeping this weekend. Which is perfect. I did drag BF to the mall on Friday afternoon because I was sure I could get a super cheat Kitchen Aid hand mixer, but of course, they were out. So we walked around the mall watching the crazies while eating some gelato! Friday night we went to a Syracuse Crunch hockey game. It was a LOT of fun (except for the creepy guy sitting next to me who sneezed on my face… no big deal. Umm, wait… YES this IS a big deal!).

Saturday we woke up and went to the farmers market. Love the farmers market! What did I leave with? Five-year aged cheddar. Why? Because it seemed like a good idea at the time.
We also went to our fave Chinese restaurant, China Road, last night for dinner. It was delish, as usual, and left me with a belly ache, as usual.
Today I was bumming. Big time. Nothing like saying goodbye every two weeks. It pretty much sucks. So now I will just look forward to the next few days we will spend together and PRAY that a job situation opens up in Syracuse.

Your Thanksgiving feast looks so good! In fact, I think it has inspired me to make a twice baked potato for dinner this evening!
