While I could take the time to tell you about my green smoothies and pumpkin/lentil sloppy joes, but honestly. Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and nothing else can really compare to that yearly feast!
It’s funny how I can spend hours and hours cooking, to have everything eaten in 10 minutes. Alas, here was yesterday’s menu:
- Tofurky (of course!)
- roasted balsamic brussel sprouts
- green bean casserole (made with homemade spicy mushroom soup)
- roasted carrots and onions
- mushroom gravy
- risotto with sage
And guess what I had for breakfast today??? 😉
Happy to report that I’ve gone for a run every other day for the past week. I’ve been incredibly lucky on the weather front, and I’ve been enjoying the runs.
I leave in a week for Brazil, and hope to keep running while I’m gone (in the hotel).
It’s been a pretty low-key work. With it being a holiday week, it’s been pretty tame at the office. Term 2 for grad school has started, and I’ve been dedicating pretty much all of my free time to my studies. To the point the other day that I was so punchy, I started tweeting bizarre econ jokes.
I’ll be in Brazil for 2 weeks (for school) and it’s freaking me out that it’s only a week away. I’m excited, but more than a little nervous after reading the most recent State Department warnings. D basically wants me to just stay at the hotel 🙂
M came home on Tuesday for the long holiday weekend! It’s been nice having everyone home. Today A is working (Black Friday in retail…I imagine she’s having a rough day!), and both R and M are having friends over for a “leftovers and chill” party.
And me? I’m going to go for a run soon and then get back to the books!
