Photos of the Week #48
WEEK 48 OF 52
I hope everyone’s enjoying the start of December, and the countdown to Christmas! Oh I do love this time of year. Picking out gifts for family and friends, organising Christmas parties, drinking mulled wine and mulled cider, eating mince pies. It’s such a special time of year. Have you decorated your house yet? Trout won’t let us decorate until at least the second week of December (*sob*) but at least I have the advent calendars to cheer my up. My Mum bought me a Yankee candle advent calendar – best idea ever!? – and Trout bought me a Moo Free calendar, so I’ve got the best of both worlds this year. I didn’t buy Ras one as he is chubby enough already, and I always forgot to give him his daily treats anyway (I know, bad cat Mum) so I decided to pop a couple of pouches of Dreamies into his stocking and give him a few every so often. Big mistake – he’s usually so good when there’s any food around – but he yanked his stocking straight off the mantlepiece and ate almost an entire bag of treats. Ugh! No more stocking for him.
Anyway, here’s what I got up to last week. It’s entirely food – what else would you expect?! – so enjoy, and I hope it doesn’t make you too hungry. Happy December!
^^Happy Thanksgiving! The day before we randomly decided to celebrate thanksgiving, either with a traditional meal or an NFL-junk-food meal. I decided to go the traditional route, and whipped up ‘turkey’, mashed potato, green beans in garlic with almonds and breadcrumbs, roasted carrots and sweet potato in maple syrup, cranberry sauce, stuffing and biscuits. Yum!^^

^^I spent Saturday morning running a few errands in town, and came home to this amazing bowl of soup. Trout made a hearty cream of mushroom soup, and it tasted so good – the perfectly lunch for a cloudy afternoon.^^
Perfect comfort food as the temperature has dropped and the wind has picked up.
