It’s Thanksgiving week! And without getting into all the oh my gosh how is it already Thanksgiving obviousness, I’ll just say, I love this week. Harry is out of school, I’m barely working, and it’s really cold outside…which never happens but is fantastically appropriate. Mainly, finally it feels like not summer. In fact, it’s downright icy outside, but inside it’s cozy and we’re being lazy, and I am thankful for that.
I’m also getting my list together for Thursday’s big meal. And while Pinterest is offering me 10 tips to make pretty much anything this season, I’m not kidding that I can’t stop craving Kale and Quinoa salad, which is really just beyond weird. I generally and seriously roll my eyes at trendy food…especially this week. But there was this incredible Kale and Quinoa salad (I know. I’m so over myself right now.) that the Ace Hotel Palm Springs served (Of course they did. Hipsters.) and I can’t stop thinking about it. So I’m going to work to recreate it today. This will probably not end well.
But if it does end well, I’ll post a recipe tomorrow. If it’s crap, I’ll post some tips for chicken fried apple pies or something more appropriate and way less ridiculous.
Other than that, we’re being lazy. Harry and I just got in late last night from a random weekend out of town, which was fun and restful and also we’re really glad to be back home. The photo above was us right before the Baylor game started on Saturday night. And believe me, we were not smiling this much after the game. In fact, the little one didn’t stay awake for the whole thing and I was really wishing I hadn’t. It was brutal. The little one is still hopeful though and looking forward to the month’s worth of sports that will be televised this weekend.
Harry did meet a number of friends while we were traveling. (The fish were a little freaky. But he thought they were awesome.)
Until then, I’m not sure what the rest of the week holds for us. We are for sure going to see the movie Free Birds today…which I heard was horrible, but we’re going all the same. Because Amy Poehler and icy weather and thanks. Like I said, laziness and kale salad and some pie and more laziness.
It’s going to be a good week.
