Thanksgiving and Stuff

Man, this has been a crazy day. I’m working today, and as you can imagine it’s been rather crazy. Generally people have been in decent moods; not too snappy at least. From what I hear, though, Balducci’s (across the street) is an absolute madhouse. The day has gone by fast, at least.

So after work I’m heading up to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving weekend. And, just my luck, it’s crappy and raining out. Nothing like a 2+ hour drive in nasty weather. Luck is not on my side this year.

Yesterday I had a great time with Lisanne! Meredith is so tiny! And so sweet! J. absolutely adored her. It was cute to watch our boys all play together. What a difference a year makes! I remember having lunch at her house last December and Luke had started crawling and N. was starting to pull himself up. And yesterday they were running around the house, climbing on the table (OK, that was just my kid, ha! Luke has better manners). I made Loaded Baked Potato Egg Bake, a dish that my husband thinks I should rename because “bake” is in it twice. Whatever — he sure liked the leftovers, though! I just threw it together with things I had in my fridge. It was perfect because I prepped everything and put the dish together in the morning, put it in the fridge, and then baked it when it was lunchtime. Lisanne and I had a lovely visit, as always 🙂

I guess that’s about it. I feel like my blog is so boring these days! I really need to keep up with it a little more often. Man, I remember back in the day I’d write three or four posts a day; now if I write three or four posts a week I’m doing well.

Anyway, I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving if you’re in the U.S.A. Don’t stuff yourselves, now 😉

    Am I allowed to say that I thought maybe your dish needed renaming because of the double “bake”? 🙂 I’m on my way to check out the recipe for that, because it sounds delicious!

    I’m with you on the blog thing. I can hardly muster up enough energy or interestingness (is that a word) to post these days.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your drive isn’t too bad.

    We had such a great time! It was wonderful seeing all of you. I’m going to *totally* miss it when you guys do move. *sigh* It was lots of fun seeing the boys play together! I enjoyed introducing you to Meredith, too! She’s lucky to have such a cool “Aunt Carol.” 🙂 Mmm, our lunch was *so* yummy.
