Sunday - Thanksgiving dinner in Wales

We had our thanksgiving today! I love Thanksgivings.

Menu as follows:

My mom made the turkey, Andy made the stuffing, Sainsburys made the Cranberry Sauce and I made everything else.  It's been a busy weekend! 

I did have help

Hopefully we'll have a new oven by thanksgiving next year, but I was pretty pleased at my oven Tetris
I decided against pecan pie but was happy I made a pecan dessert. Apple crumbles are so good and I don't know why I don't eat the more (obvious sugar reasons aside)

This week:
  • Monday evening at home: review November goals and plan December goals (hint: I made 0 of 2 monthly runs in November)
  • Writing club on Tuesday
  • Office day then out to dinner with friends on Wednesday
  • Andy at home night on Thursday
  • Not attending Christmas Party on Friday and looking forward to downtime


  1. Your feast sounds delicious! I am especially intrigued by the mushroom casserole. And your helper looks very cheerful and adorable.

    1. The mushroom casserole was a total hit. I can't eat it because I know it's basically cheese stuck together with breadcrumbs. It was/is delicious.

  2. I didn't have a proper supper this evening and reading your food list is legitimately making my stomach rumble. Might be time to head into the kitchen for a snack - which will definitely pale in comparison to your feast!

  3. Aww thank you! I have that same problem with blogger! I can only do it off my work computer to and it keeps me from commenting on other people's blogs. I wonder if it's a setting I can change - I think I just didn't want random comments but also maybe I could just allow random comments...?

  4. I honestly don't know why anyone makes a pie over a crumble. Crumbles are so much easier! Also, I don't know anyone who's all "I LOVE a pie crust pastry." Crumble for life!

    1. haha it's true! The best you get with pie is "well this crust isn't burned or raw"

  5. How wonderful - I am glad you had a great Thanksgiving meal :)
