I am sooo excited to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family! It’s always a very low key and comfy affair. I normally get to my parents’ house on Wednesday night, sleep in on Thursday, and then we all head to the movies. Last year we saw The Blind Side, which resulted in lots of tears. Mostly mine of course.
Um, dear family, let’s lighten it up for 2010, shall we?
Post movie we head home, cook and of course eat! Then we watch A Christmas Story 2.5 times before passing out on the couch. It’s all lovely. For food, we keep it hearty but healthy. My family (minus me) has become a bit butter/cheese/cream-adverse in the past few years, so there’s not a lot of cheesy casseroling happening. Still, everything is always delicious and I LOVE cooking with my Ma and sister J. I’ve been busy snagging recipes from magazines and my fave blogs the past couple days. Everything looks so good… I don’t wanna wait for November 25…
So, because I’m a hoilday-crazed, baking-crazed, and just generally crazed crazy, I am having an early Thanksgiving when my bestie Erica is in town in a couple weekends. We’re going to have a blast cooking, baking, and destroying my teeny kitchen. And no butter/cheese/cream will be spared for Thanksgiving Act I. As a special treat for us, I bought these on Bake It Pretty:
Ammmazing. I love everything on their site. AND, I will be in Asheville next week so I get to visit their pretty shop. I could do a lot of damage there. Oh boy.
Anyone been to Asheville, NC? Any recs?
