We hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and enjoyed your time off of work – hopefully – and didn’t go too crazy with Black Friday Shopping. We discussed if stores should or shouldn’t be open on Thanksgiving, and while we think there is no reason for stores to open early, it really has been going on for years. Kyla used to go to the Coach Outlets on Thanksgiving night, wait in line, and at 11pm, the doors would open and the girls would go crazy for the best discount on their designer bag. Also, I am sure many of you have swung by a Starbucks on your way over to your in-laws for a quick coffee on Thanksgiving Day. The Thanksgiving Day early shopping really takes all the “fun” away from Black Friday. It’s not really on Friday anymore.. It all week. And then it rolls into Cyber Monday. Which will most likely be EXTENDED! just one more day or week. Oh retail. you got us…. just. one. more. sale. We are suckers.
Okay, sorry for that diversion. Lets talk about food shall we. There is only one more month for you to fullfill that New Years Resolution you set back in January. Most people set their resolutions based around food or working out. Now- if you have went off the beaten trail and didn’t meet your expectations or goals. Set your December Resolution now! If you want to start pre-planning or cooking your meals, this site will help you. For the lunches listed below, both were prepared on the Sunday before the work week, and the first dinner was made in bulk on Monday to have leftovers. Last week waaaaasss thanksgiving, so on Thursday we enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast with leftovers through the weekend. (Remember– we post our meals a week after we consume them to make sure it is something we actually want our readers to try).
Happy December and Guten Appetit!
