What a fun, relaxing day!
We woke up to a delicious breakfast of ‘leftover carne and egg and cheese and cilantro and sour cream burritos’ and great company, as Blake would say: UNCLE (screaming) Jay and Amory (Mallory). After flipping through the Black Friday ads and saying goodbye to Jay and Mal, it was time to cook!
This wasn’t the first time I had cooked a turkey and was excited to host a small, family dinner. As I prepped the bird, M and B had a good time out front at the neighbor’s bounce house. We are so fortunate to live on a great street and everybody was out doing something: flag football games, bikes, drinks, and a lot of laughs.
Jenny and Ronnie arrived right on time to help with the sides (and we had a lot as you’ll see below!). It was nice to be in the kitchen and really cook and talk about our kids growing up together, since Jenny is prego too. Blake went down early after eating (while half asleep) a yogurt. He didn’t want any part of this fantastic meal. Next time.
I sure am thankful for a great life.
