Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope everyone enjoys a relaxing day with family and friends, and NOT shopping! Shopping is for Friday, folks! I do wish you and yours the happiest and merriest of Thanksgivings, enjoy the time with the ones you love.
Last weekend, James and I went to the clubhouse at our apartment complex, and had a chili lunch, it was really tasty. It’s been quite a while since either of us had chili. They were missing the cinnamon rolls though! I think it must be a German thing, having cinnamon rolls with chili. I’ll have to tell them for next time. 😉
On Saturday, I ran a loop that included stopping by the little pond where my buddy Edgar the Swan lives. I didn’t really know if swans migrate like geese, so I figured I’d run by and see if he was still hanging around. He was. He wasn’t happy to be sharing his little pond with a bunch of migrating Canadian Geese. He was sure to chase me and bite at the rocks.
The geese were sure to stay on the other side of the pond, away from Edgar. When Edgar tried to follow after me, the geese took off and landed on the other side of the pond, and then flip flopped it again as he followed me back up the path. I was lucky enough to get a picture of a goose flying/running away from Edgar.
Jasper and Toothless. This picture makes me giggle with glee. I put Toothless on top of Jazzy’s cube, out of the way, and later Jasper curled up underneath. Adorable.
Also adorable… when Jasper doesn’t realize his tongue is sticking out while he’s sleeping.
As a surprise to take home for Thanksgiving, I baked my very first 2 pies this week! I have baked pies before, but it’s always been under Kristen and Mom’s instruction. Kristen has taught me Grandma’s pie crust over the last few holidays, and I was really glad to be able to replicate it.
Aside from burning the crusts a little bit, and having to throw out the first batch of pie crust because it was too dry and flaky, I think they turned out pretty good, and hopefully they taste good too! Cherry pie is my very favorite kind of pie. I can’t wait to have some this weekend with both sides of my family.
Don’t forget to get your entry in for the Road ID giveaway! Deadline is Monday December 1 at 7:00pm!
Do you eat cinnamon rolls with your chili? What’s your favorite kind of pie?
