It's back to work today, after a long weekend (I took Friday off). I always feel so much more refreshed with that bonus day.
I sat down with the kids & M this weekend, & we debated our Thanksgiving menu. As context, it will just be the four of us, and neither of the kids like the traditional menu items much. Also, I have one super picky eater. Here's what we've decided:
Goat cheese crostini
Kale salad with toasted nuts, feta cheese, & pomegranate seeds
Homemade cranberry sauce
A turkey breast (I've never made one, so wish me luck :-))
Mini pigs in a blanket (ha, yes, so traditional)
Pumpkin pie with ice cream
We'll get up in the morning and do a 5K together (our local high school puts one on as a fundraiser), & then I'll get to work in the kitchen. It's usually a relaxing, fun day. Looking forward to spending time with my favorite people.
What about you? Have you made your menu yet? What will you be making or serving on Thanksgiving? Any non-traditional items? :-)
