Butcher Shop in a Snow Globe
What’s your Thanksgiving like? We actually had Thanksgiving yesterday on Wednesday because it was a snow day. There are some benefits of working with the weather. When it is not conducive to being outside we switch around our schedule. So Wednesday became Thursday and visa-versa.
We awoke on Thanksgiving (Wednesday) to almost a foot of snow and it kept falling all day. We did the minimum amount of chores. The dogs danced in the snow. The kids snowboarded down the mountain.
For breakfast we had Lox, cream cheese and toasted bagels with orange juice. Lox is smoked salmon for those who have not yet been introduced. It is delicious.
I enjoyed a book. We read comics. Will cooked granola filling the house with delicious smells. Hair cuts happened. We cooked more.
Lunch was light, guacamole and chips, brie and veggies, fruit.
We cooked more. It was a cooking kind of day.
Dinner was early and hearty. Turkey with strips of our own smoked jowl on top. A stuffing of nuts, cranberries, bread, apple, bacon, pepper, salt sage and allspice. Cranberries, steamed veggies, home made blue cheese dressing on salad. Homemade almond cookies for dessert.
Add five thankful people and a pack of dogs calmly waiting.
