Hello friends! Hope you all had a fantastic holiday (if you were celebrating) and weekend!
It was a quick trip home for me! I feel like I was just talking about how excited I was to be going home. and now here I am again, writing from the airport.
It was great to be able to spend time with my family, and I am already counting the days until I am back for the Christmas holidays. It’s also hard to leave this weather behind…
Anyway, I am happy to report that the foods I made for Thanksgiving seemed to be a huge success with my mostly meat-eating family!
Here’s what I made…
Garlic Mashed Potatoes (w/lentils! – no one guessed it :-))
Cinnamon Cider Brussel Sprouts w/ Apples & Pears < big hit, even with the brussel haters!!
Cranberry-Orange-Chocolate Chip Cookies
BTW the recipe used as the base is literally the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve ever made, by far. Including those made with gluten. If you are GF, you absolutely MUST try them.
When I made this, I got a chance to play with the new toy my dad bought.. amazing.com
I have a few more exciting things to share from the trip, but I am about to board my flight so they will have to wait until I’m back in Boston!
