Some shots from Thanksgiving. Yes, we did ask my brother’s girlfriend to make a veggie tray shaped like a turkey and she went above and beyond with caper eyes and a pepper beak. (“Turkeys have beaks!”)
Good food, good family, good times. And instead of a family game, we took online geography quizzes and realized we all suck, royally, but if we put our heads together, we don’t do so bad.
Hope your Thanksgiving was just as lovely as mine.
Baking is an activity I can get behind. Especially when I’m baking cornbread, which is one of the best bread inventions ever. (granted, bread in general is delicious and while we’re talking about it, I’ll have you know I’ve never used sugar in my cornbread in my entire life… because then it tastes like cake)
Of course we used the cornbread to make cornbread dressing, which we still have leftovers of and I think I’ll go eat some now.
I stayed up late to crack hazelnuts because my nan wanted to make vegan cheese.
Lots of laughter and me talking in funny voices, the way I’m prone to.
Also, beating nuts with a mallet it incredibly therapeutic and you should all try it sometime.
And then make cheese.
I’ve been gone a while. I know. Between helping open a new store, being sick for a week, and getting my next novel ready for publication, October was one hell of a month. Here’s hoping November slows down just a. little. bit. But here’s the photographic recap of October for y’all. Happy viewing.
I should mention I’ve decided to grow my hair out, I was an alpha wolf for Halloween, and I now hold a PhD in painting. I also work with some of the greatest people ever, in the most beautiful shop ever, and the only thing that would make it better would be if we all lived somewhere nice and warm.
Or, you know, if the BBQ food truck down a block would deliver and if the grocery with the best muffins were closer… those would be nice too.
Home haircut, Garance Doré videos, and apple bread that was so moist and crumbly, we poured cream over it and had it for dessert.
Crazy, sometimes frustrating, full of laughter, and sometimes seemingly never ending.
But oh, I have a feeling it’s all going to be worth it.
