UGH! This weather is a major bummer. The whole weekend has been drizzly and windy and cold and gloomy and just… BLAH.
But I don’t want to sit here and complain because that is making me grumpier than the cruddy weather. Instead, I’m going to talk about things that make me happy. That should make Monday (and this nutty weather) a little bit better! Continue reading

I know I haven’t done a Monday meal-prep post in awhile and there is a very good reason for that. I haven’t really done a ton of meal prep.
Three Thanksgivings in three days. If you weren’t aware, that is a lot of food. In the past, I probably would have worried about how I was going to navigate all that eating but this year I took a different approach.
I decided I wasn’t going to sit there and think about all the things I could or could not eat. I wasn’t going to fret about going overboard and shoving as much food in my face as possible. I was going to enjoy the people I was with, share the dishes I had made, and overall have a good time. In short I was going to not be a control freak and have a good Thanksgiving.
And you know what?
It was one of the best Thanksgivings ever. I spent time with the people I love and some I hadn’t seen in a long time. I made a chocolate peanut butter pie that was a hit (and I promise to share it soon). I laughed, I ate, I was thankful.
Like I said, one of the best Thanksgivings ever.
How was your holiday? Did you get to see friends and family? Eat any new dishes?
Don’t worry, I’m not going to get all touchy-feely about the Cubs in this post. I just thought it would be fun to share some of the fun things that are going on around here lately. If you do crave the touchy-feely, you can read this Cubs post here.
