|Turkey latte art from last weekend|
Welp, I survived my first official holiday without the fam. Yesterday didn't really feel like Thanksgiving to me, though. Not sure if you've noticed, but casinos are a 24/7, 365 day a year kind of operation - we don't get holidays. I haven't been here long enough to be able to take vacation, so I woke up, set the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to record and headed my happy ass to work. Our office was dead since most people I work were on PTO (personal time off), so it was nice to be able to work in silence and not have to run off to a meeting every other hour.
After work, I headed home to make macaroni and cheese and to get ready for Thanksgiving Dinner at my BFF Kristina's house (the one I lived with when I first moved here). I also made a strawberry pretzel dessert per her request. Shout out to fellow bloggess Brooke from Tales of My Fairytale for sharing this recipe with me. It was a hit.
|If I were to make it again (for my own personal preference), I'd use graham crackers instead of pretzels to make the crust. If you love a salty, sweet combo than this recipe is for you. If you like all sweet, then I suggest a graham cracker crust.|
The turkey, which was phenom might I add. If I had to made a turkey, I wouldn't even know where to begin.
All the fooooood.
Get in my belly.

So that about sums up my Thanksgiving. I came home after dinner and a game of Apples to Apples, finished watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade I recorded and fell asleep.
My family (including REESE) is coming to VEGAS FOR CHRISTMAS! Excited does not even begin to describe it. Speaking of Reese, I leave you with this video message from him to me. Melt my heart, why don't you?
