first of all, let me get this out of the way.
just nablowme, ok?
phew. now that’s crossed off my list.
our friends just built an amazing home that’s not quite finished – but close. the kitchen and bathrooms are fully operational so they brought over all their outdoor furniture and we dined bistro style by the fireplace in the otherwise empty house. it was perfect.
so besides the great dinner and spending time with people i love, my favorite part of thanksgiving is that whole ‘stopping for a minute and giving thanks’ thing. and so when we all joined hands and closed our eyes to share the gratitude aloud, our grace was nicely capped with an “amen, hallelujah and bon appétit”. personally, i got a kick out of that.
here’s a teaser photo of our unique turkey scenario. more on this to come.
as i write it’s past 10 pm and today i have fasted. just some tea with a bit of agave. i’ve not eaten one single thing. i’m quite sure that yesterday i ate enough calories for 2 days easily so i am just going to level out here. regroup. i’ve managed to successfully side step the leftovers. no turkey sandwich with russian dressing for me. i barely entered the kitchen.
but i am considering a longer fast. like a 2 or 3 weeker. like a ‘no food’ kinda fast - just some fresh squeezed juice. i’ve done it before, but never as a food blogger. we’ll see what i do.
anyway, drastic times call for drastic measures…
