It’s Thanksgiving week darlings! Turkey Day is my 2nd favorite holiday of the year because it’s the only day that Chloe Bisou and I get to unabashedly and unapologetically gorge ourselves with our favorite treats. We both love food entirely too much.
Except that this year, we’re going to cool it with the gorging part.
Since we’ve moved from our families in Washington state, we don’t cook a turkey any more, but we usually make a special meal; a rack of lamb, a tri-tip, or a prime rib with all the yummy fixings (sorry darlings, I’m not vegan.) But this year I think we’re going to keep it simple: no mountains of buttery mash potatoes, no piling my plate with crescent rolls, and no Costco size pumpkin pies.
Truthfully, nowadays I have “gorging hangovers.” I eat too much (and enjoy it while I eat it) but then feel sick and swollen for a week… or longer. So we’re keeping things smaller, simpler, and healthier this year.
Chloe Bisou and her siblings will get a special treat this year though. We like getting pumpkin ice cream from The Bear and The Rat for them, because we know how much they LOVE it! If they can’t share in pumpkin pie with us, it’s the next best thing.
Chloe Bisou and I are also going to be comfortable in our Bisou Bow sweaters for Black Friday shopping. I wonder what wonderful treasures we’ll find in all of the sales and mayhem…? Not that we need anything, we just sometimes like to peek at the deals… well, and people watch. Ha!
What are your Thanksgiving plans? Whatever they are, we hope that you have a fantastic holiday full of food, family, friends, and good cheer! Much love to you all!
