Gobble Gobble & More Internet Woes

I'm always amazed at how quickly long weekends fly by! Now to get to my Thanksgiving weekend recap.


I've pretty much committed to a 5k at the end of this month. In anticipation of this commitment (still to be confirmed), I decided to get my ass back in shape by going running with Misty. My first attempt at a run was at night. I think we were both a little spooked out by how dark the park gets at night, so my attempt was cut short.


Massive beer for a massive burger

My bestie, Kat, had this amazing idea to go to a buffet on Saturday. I'm all down for buffets. And for using coupons for said buffet. So, Andrew and I drove out to the middle of nowhere to meet Kat and her fiance for lunch. Just to get to the buffet place and find out it was closed. Like, out of business. Good job, Kat.

So, Andrew and I went out to eat elsewhere and met Kat and DK at our place later that night.

Beamer (Kat and DK's dog) is hiding as Andrew says hello to random dogs
 But first, the four of us took the dogs to the park.

Then we came home and took way too many awkward pictures like this.

And somehow managed to get one normal one.

And made delicious red velvet white chocolate chip cookies before calling it a night.


Remember on Friday, when I said I still didn't have internet? I ended up cancelling my services with Distributel and went with a different company. That company said they'd be at my place on Sunday to set up my internet. Great! So, Sunday I waited at home. And waited. And waited. And guess what? That's right! THEY DIDN'T SHOW! I don't know why I've been having such bad luck with getting internet but this is seriously getting out of hand! My next appointment is for this Thursday evening. Wish me luck!


I woke up bright and early to run with Misty at the park. It was a gorgeous morning! So gorgeous, that after running for only a tiny bit, Misty decided to take in the weather and roll around in the grass. Who can blame her?

I spent the rest of the day cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

I started things off with a nacho dip.

I think I have too much chips in my house..

Then followed it up with chicken, turkey breast, stuffing, green beans and mashed potatoes.

Completed by an apple bake (which was delicious; thanks Dad for all the apples!) and a store bought pumpkin pie (which was gross).

Andrew said I made way too much food since dinner was only for four people. I definitely made too much mashed potatoes (I made them last year and they were amazing. I think I added too many potatoes this year). But, I'd rather have too much food than not enough!

Back to work I go! Apologies, again, for lack of posts, comments and slow responses. I'll be back to "normal" when I finally have internet!


  1. Oh my goodness - the NEW company didn't show?! What is going on with the internest companies?! Sigh. Good luck on Thursday!

  2. seriously looking at these pictures and being hungry isn't a good combination. lol i want some food.

  3. those look so good!!!! I need to make some type of apple dessert before fall is over!

  4. yikes! running at night? i could never do that; i'm way too chicken and afraid of getting mugged/shot/raped/abducted to do that. but at least you had your dog to protect you. if i had a dog, i would train him to bite anything at command and i would use a word like EAT! which would trigger his blood-thirsty instinct to chew the shit out of the mugger/robber/rapist/abductor!

  5. running at night....in toronto? You are brave! That sucks about your internet!

  6. Oh frig, I just emailed you saying that I hope your weekend was filled with internet then I saw this...sad :(. On the bright side, your food looks GOOD!

  7. I can't believe you got screwed on the internet thing again. This is just getting out of control!
    Your supper looked really good! I always say it's better to have more than not enough. Now, you have lots of left overs. You can make gnocchi with your left over mash potatoes..! You just add a shit ton of flour.. roll up the mash potatoes.. cut them into little pieces.. plop in boiling water until the water rises.. and boom- homemade italian pasta.. add to any spaghetti sauce.
    Those cookies!!!! OMG- will you girls all stop with the red velvet deliciousness already!!? :)

  8. *Correction: Plop them into boiling water until the GNOCCHI rises.. not the water*

  9. Mmm, all that foods looks so good! You can come cook for me for Thanksgiving! Or at least bring me some of those sweets!
    Keeping it thrifty

  10. Wow, props to you for committing to a 5k, I would die. End of story.

    You're supposed to make too much food on Thanksgiving, that way you get to eat leftovers all week! Looks like you had a nice one :)


I love comments. Thanks for making me smile!
