Weekly Eats: A Four Day Weekend!


A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  This week I underestimated the magic of a four day weekend and the amount of Thanksgiving goodies that two people can eat.

My company doesn't have a PTO policy, apart from "as long as the work gets done we don't care".  It's been great in previous years but not so great this year when there's no where to go so I just haven't taken any time away from work.  I didn't realize until I woke up on Saturday morning that ooh...we'd had two days off and had the luxury of two more to go.  Aah the bliss of a double weekend.  Not that we "did" anything but it was so nice to have the time off.

Thanksgiving wise, we had a blast.  The food already got its own post.  I thought that we'd be swarming under the weight of leftovers but we surprised ourselves.

Thanksgiving Recap

Last year: for the first time in our relationship, my husband and I found ourselves alone on Thanksgiving.  The kids were with their mom and the rest of the family was with in-laws, so we had to wait until Friday for our big Thanksgiving bash.  We were oh-so-clever and put together a small semi-homemade Thanksgiving dinner and had a wonderful day.

This year: like just about everyone else on the planet, hubs and I found ourselves alone on Thanksgiving.  Here is the story of our oh-so-clever, more than semi-homemade Thanksgiving dinner, and our wonderful day.

Weekly Eats: Surviving


A weekly roundup: eats, watches, and reads.  This week's title is a nod to Shaun of the has been extreme and about all that I can say is that I am surviving.  I have had the longest work day today so excuse me if this post is a little disjointed (I mean more so than usual), but I felt like popping in to chit chat about food, watching Shaun of the Dead with my family, and an incredible read.

Weekly Sweats: Recharge

I am coming back from some unspecified running woe.  The only clue that I have to work with is that I did two very hard workouts back to back a few weeks ago and it was like my body shut down on me.  After backing off, I feel like things are starting to come back.  24.25 miles this week, with absolutely no thanks to the weather.

A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  This was a hot week on the TV and reading front, so let's skim through the eats so we can get to the good stuff.

Weekly Sweats: Reset

Welp, things got off track a bit.  I made the rookie mistake of running two hard workouts back to back "because I could" and my body told me to slow my roll.  I think I'm in the same place that I was at this time last year where I just needed to run less.  So that's exactly what I've been doing!

A weekly round up: eats, watches, and reads.  I managed to stay ahead of the family dinner meal curve this week and tried an incredible new stir fry.

So I've Been Posting My Meals on the Internet for Three Years...


Today is the three year anniversary of the first weekly eats post.  That's right, Weekly Eats is a threenager!  As I've done every year around this time, it's time to take a look back and reflect on the "best of the best".

Weekly Eats: A Very Good Week

A weekly roundup: eats, watches, and reads.  Guys, this was a Good News week all around.  Something very, very good happened to my husband at work.  The kids are rocking school (it comes easily to one and not so easily to the other).  I managed to feed everyone!  And found a good TV show and some really good books.
