Leftovers + Laughing

November 28, 2008

Pretty much sums up the day.

This morning we went on a great hike and walked about 4 miles. The crew:


(Mom was the photographer)


And a funny swimming doggie!


We came home to a wonderful late lunch of Thanksgiving leftovers.


I had a little of everything –


And made a wonderful turkey + cranberry sandwich on a roll –


Seconds on kale –


Mom wanted some pie and I said I’d help her with one bite. Here’s my one bite!


Mom and I went shopping this afternoon to Kohls and Bed, Bath & Beyond. I got a black and white shower curtain for our powder bath (after 2 years in this house we FINALLY got a curtain!) so now the home-brewed beer is covered. The whole den of our house has been transformed this weekend with the new furniture and the curtain.

I was totally pooped after my workout, hike and 2 hours more shopping on my feet but we were due at Karen’s condo at 5:30 for dinner!

I started with some Chardonnay –


Karen had out cheese and crackers. I had about 4 total throughout the evening.

Wine pour #2


Small pour #3. I keep my glasses of wine tiny so I get lots of ’em.


For dinner Karen made chicken marsala –


And spinach + veggie salads –


I ate all of my salad plus about 2/3 of the chicken dish (I left 2 of the bigger pieces of chicken. We were served the portions so I didn’t put this much on my plate to begin with!)


My leftovers (snapped discreetly!)


Mas vino – tiny pours! Boy that’s a lotta wine!

For dessert we had ice cream sundaes! Mine was big – But my dad’s with the grandfather of them all!

So tired – goodnight!

The rolls look exactly like the ones my aunt always makes – we call them “doughballs.” She usually makes two batches, one a bit more “done” than the other.


13 Nicole November 28, 2008 at 10:47 pm

What a sundae! It looks fabulous. Mouth watering fabulous, at that!


14 Lida November 28, 2008 at 10:50 pm

your day was so packed! I’m jealous… I wouldn’t mind going for a hike.
Have a good weekend!


15 Brendalala November 28, 2008 at 11:26 pm

Kath, I really like that sheer gold blouse you’re wearing! Mind sharing where you got it?


16 Mara November 28, 2008 at 11:28 pm

Looks like you had a wonderful day!


17 Justy2003 November 29, 2008 at 8:48 am

I love that napkin!
A hike sounds like so much fun! I wish Houston wasn’t so flat so we could have places to hike!


18 Mel November 29, 2008 at 10:07 am

Looks like you had a fun day! You look beautiful in that gold top! :)


19 Fancy November 29, 2008 at 10:50 am

I LOVE Chicken Marsala. Hers looks delicious!


20 Fancy November 29, 2008 at 10:51 am

As soon as I sent that comment….I decided that hes looks REALLY delicious and wanted to ask for the recipe! Do you think she would mind sharing it with us?


21 Erin November 29, 2008 at 11:07 am

Great pictures! I love love love NC! My family usually spends Thanksgiving there but we weren’t able to this year and you pictures made me miss it even more! (but in a good way! lol) Great blog!


22 Jen November 29, 2008 at 11:28 am

It looks + sounds like you are having a fabulous time with family!


23 Kath November 29, 2008 at 11:33 am

Brendalala ,
Thanks! It’s my birthday present from Karen and she got it at LOFT.

Fancy ,
It’s really hard for me to get the recipes for stuff when I have them at other people’s houses. This was just a standard chicken marsala recipe (nothing healthy about it!) so I think any you found at MyRecipes.com would be comparable.



24 K November 29, 2008 at 11:54 am

What photogenic families!!

Love your yellow top, it’s very cute! The rolls from Thanksgiving look seriously delicious!


25 Roberto Boemer November 5, 2011 at 10:59 am

You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really something that I believe I would never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me. I’m looking ahead on your next post, I will attempt to get the hang of it!
