It’s the day before Thanksgiving! People have already started traveling and I heard that traffic was bad leaving Boston last night. I’ll be working a half day and then leave in the early afternoon. I’m going to New York, about an hour North of NYC. It’s on the other side of the Hudson River.
Here are some recent pictures
I went to Post 390’s VIP event where they featured many farms that they source their ingredients from. Jennifer and I had a good time but it was very crowded and hot!
We left and went to a Mexican place called Zocalo and had margaritas!
On Friday night, I did some Thanksgiving pre-baking! Cookies to freeze!
I got a free gallon of Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint for being a BzzAgent! It was the best paint I’ve ever used. It is expensive paint but the guy at the hardware store said it was the best paint money could buy. I do have to say that while we were painting, we said a dozen times that this is the best paint we had ever used. It went on smooth, no drips, no splatters, and no curse words were uttered- unlike the last time I painted a few years ago. We didn’t need to prime it or put on another coat over a yellow existing wall.
I met up with Jessie, Eleanor, Catie, and Lauren, to celebrate Lauren’s birthday, her running a marathon (and Jessie too), and getting a tattoo (Jessie is getting one next week) at Russell House Tavern in Harvard Square.
Sunday, I went to Sarah’s, a local cafe and got a breakfast sandwich for the first time and it was exactly what I wanted!
On Sunday, I baked and baked! I made a dozen mini cheesecakes (forgot to take a picture) and 2 dozen mini chocolate and pecan pies!! I made the dough for the first dozen by hand and got so aggravated and then used store bought pie dough for the second and it was so much easier!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Here are 2 handmade cards that family sent me this week!
