We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! I am thankful for all the quality time that we got to spend with both of our families. Here’s a quick summary of our day, chronicled in photos!
We started the day with a 5K with my aunt and cousin.
Henri and I finished!!
Made our way over to the in-laws house in our matching outfits!
I made some very tasty gravy!!
The family put together quick the dinner spread! (This wasn’t even half of everything)
My full plate… yes, I ate all of it!
Desserts: Sweet-Potato Pecan, Apple Crumble, Apple, and Pumpkin pies!
It was a great day full of family, tasty food, fun, games, and lots and lots of laughter! I really enjoyed my first Californian Thanksgiving!
On a completely different note – this month was my first time participating in Lindsay’s Foodie Penpals over at The Lean Green Bean. I had such a blast shopping for my penpal, and her package for me was so thoughtful!
My penpal, Ree, did a great job and treated me to many new items that I’ve never tried! When I opened her package this is what I found…
- Almond Roca – Love these things! Chocolately, almondy, delicious.
- Pom-Cranberry Crunch Clusters – These fruit and nut clusters are really tasty. They are really easy to take with you for a quick on-the-go snack.
- Apple & Blueberry Granola – I am usually not a fan of fruit flavored cereal, but this granola proved me wrong. It is very very good topped with sliced bananas, cinnamon, and a bunch of milk!
- Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Caramels – These chocolates are by far my favorite thing that my buddy included. The balance of chocolate, caramels, and salt is perfect. They were all gone within a week!
I cannot wait to sign-up for the December Foodie Penpal exchange! Shopping for holiday themed food is so much fun!
