Gah. You guys. This whole week is going to be a mess. Half day at school, run home to bake, drive to Connecticut, spend Thanksgiving with the future in-laws (!!!), drive back Saturday morning for a baby shower in New Hampshire. Basically, zero seconds to relax and do nothing which is kind of the point of the long Thanksgiving weekend (besides the food).
I know I shouldn’t be complaining that we’re busy visiting loved ones, but for my own sanity I know I need at least one night per week to legit sit on my ass and just zone out while powering through the DVR. I swear, after this weekend I’m going to start blocking out my calendar to include Zone Out Days. You know, except for all the days we’ll be doing stuff for the holidays. Sigh.
But for now I’m off to make Pecan Pumpkin Crunch Bars, pickled watermelon rinds wrapped in maple bacon, and brussel sprouts with a balsamic reduction. Plus, I was able to purchase all the alcohol for the baby shower online just now: PRAISE THE INTERNET! So please tell me what you’re making so that I can drool from afar.
