Hey there — are you still in a food coma? I’m slowly emerging from my very delightful one.
I didn’t take nearly enough pictures over the weekend, so below are just a smattering of some along with some other odds and ends.
That evening I went on my baking frenzy: 2 pumpkin pies (one with crust, one without + 2 extra ramekins) and 2 full apple crisps. Nom.
I ate both ramekins, 1 slice of the traditional pie and about 3/4th of the crustless pie. I have no shame.
Bean was festive for the big day:
And by festive, I mean the turkey bib he sported.
Our friends did an incredible job with the turkey. Dark meat was braised in some sort of apple cider something while the white meat was barbecued on the grill:
It was quite good…actually it was great. That being said, I still think I may go back to being a vegetarian full time (I’m about veg 96% of the time these days).
Friday I completely avoided the malls, did some Xmas shopping online, and had a play date for Bean. Much more enjoyable this way.
Saturday, however, I was able to force Zach to the Gilroy Outlets. The shopping was a-maz-ing. If only we had about 20 more hours. No seriously. Even Zach would have shopped more. There was a line outside the Coach store just to be able to get in to shop. I had to text Zach pictures while he waited outside — like this one, to see if it would fit my laptop:
Let’s just say, I found out it does ;)
I found a million other things to buy and Zach tried to see if he could get it and say it was for Xmas. No. Big fat no. I’d rather get something I didn’t ask for than be present while getting my gift. Am I the only one that feels this way?
Sunday was lovely and productive: morning hike, some ceramic painting, groceries, laundry, a big batch of chili, and cleaning.
The only thing that has me down starting into this week is my lack of leftover pumpkin pie :P
