Thanksgiving is over and we’re officially in the full swing of the holiday season. Which means I’m ecstatic! (Btw, how was your Thanksgiving? Ours was wonderful, mellow, and full or good food!) I took down all of my Fall decorations on Friday and hung up my Christmas wreath on our front door and we’ve begun playing Christmas music (like full-on loud, lyric songs!) in the house, especially while we cook dinner.
Did any of you brave the stores on Friday? The kids and I went grocery shopping and that was it. I took advantage of our store’s notorious sock sales and snagged Eden a set of tights and Christian some socks, but that was it. I didn’t do any shopping online either…maybe I will today, though, for Cyber Monday.
Josh and I have this ongoing date-night tradition of sharing my Birthday burger and split a Gingerbread Shake from Red Robin (my birthday is the 24th) and then we go do Christmas shopping together and I find it really enjoyable. It’s low-key (not “Loki” as my kids would say) cozy, and kind of romantic. I look forward to it every year!
This week’s menu has a few favorite dishes that we make often and a couple of new ones I haven’t tried yet. Between the Thanksgiving turkey on Thursday and our Mini Turkey Pot Pies on Friday and turkey sandwiches on Sunday, I’m a little turkey’ed out. But if your looking for a few previous menus to help inspire you, check out our Pinterest board.
