We had such a nice weekend! On Saturday we got up early and spent the day cleaning and cooking and getting ready for our friends to come over for a potluck-style early Thanksgiving! We were in charge of cooking the turkey and we also made green beans with garlic. Everyone brought amazing food including, home baked bread, mashed potatoes and Chanterelle gravy, delicious stuffing, cranberry sauce, salad and pumpkin pies made from scratch!
We shared good wine and beer and had a lovely evening. I feel so grateful to have such wonderful friends. For so long it was just me and Kyle. We moved around so much that we have never really had a core group of friends. It was such a blessing to have them all over together enjoying great food and our new kitchen!
On Sunday we went for a nice walk, got eggnog lattes and picked up the house. I headed to Portland for a fun dinner/movie date with my friend Lauren. I picked her up and we went to Park Kitchen for dinner, which was really yummy, then we hopped across the street to the Portland Art Museum for the NW Film Fest screening of Bucksville.
I got home pretty late last night and I'm a bit tired today but this weekend was so fun! I'm spending the day picking up ingredients for real Thanksgiving (we are making stuffing and cheesecake), doing laundry and cuddling with Gwyn. Hope you all have a great Monday!
