A lot of you have been asking if we're okay and/or if we've abandoned the blog and I'm here to tell you all that everything is fine.
We've just been really busy.
We've always said we wouldn't be one of those bloggers -- you know, the ones that post once every few months. Well, we started off strong but lately life has gotten in the way. Lately our evenings comprise of getting in from work around 7:30pm...dinner is either leftovers or something super easy, and then after a bit, just heading to bed to start another day. Between obligations at work, family crises, and house hunting; we've been spent.
But I think we're back. Things have quieted down a bit and, well, since I've been having dreams about posting, I think it's time to get back into the swing of things...AND what a better way to do so then to host a Thanksgiving dinner this weekend (14 people!!).
This is huge for me. Thanksgiving (us wacky Canadians celebrate this weekend), for us, has always been a great excuse to overeat, overdrink, and overlaugh in our family. This is the first year that I'm hosting and it is nervewracking and exciting all at once. I suddenly feel like a grown up.
So besides the usual huge turkey, I have no idea what else is on the menu...and it's 2 days away. Any menu ideas and suggestions would be much appreciated...anything from appetizers to desserts. What tried and true recipes have gotten you through the holidays?
Long story short, look forward to posts this weekend with all the turkey-day details.
The good, the bad, and the tasty....Stay tuned - We're back, and with a huge bang.
(We're sorry about the lull, we hope you still stick around!)
