That’s right—I’m back in CNY for Turkey Day.
The past few days have revolved around organizing, packing, and doing laundry, and I took the train home yesterday. One of the benefits of freelancing/not having a full-time “big-girl” job includes getting a jump-start on holiday travel, so I beat the rush. No complaints here! Oh, and in somewhat-related news, operation clean out the fridge went pretty well.
Two things: First, that is not my can of Dr. Diet Pepper. Someone (*cough* mom *cough*) left it when they visited. Second, I craved and had to buy more almond milk. I almost had a one-trip-to-the-grocery-store week.
My mom asked what I wanted for my first meal back home, and there was no hesitation—spicy shrimp with cilantro and lime.
I tried to make a modified two-ingredient pancake this morning and failed miserably.
Whoops. It still tasted good, though.
I ate an early lunch today of leftover chicken and green beans, plus an unpictured apple.
Aside from the food front, I don’t have too much to report. I spent the afternoon running some Thanksgiving-related errands; nothing too exciting. We host Turkey Day every year, and we have 17 people coming. Actually, in the words of my mom we “have only 17 people” attending; most years, we get more than 20! Thank you, large Irish-Italian-Roman-Catholic family.
What are your Thanksgiving plans?
