Happy Thanksgiving Eve Day!

If you didn’t know this about me already, I get pretty excited about the holidays. Like, this excited

buddy the elf

I love the atmosphere, the family time, the baking and cooking, the decorations. All of it. So I’m pretty freaking pumped that Thanksgiving is tomorrow!

I just wish that I was going to do a Turkey Trot this year :/ Next year hopefully. It really wouldn’t have mattered if I had signed up for one anyways since my back is all spastic-tastic.

Anyways, this post about WIWW and WIAW will be so much more fun next week, when I’m 10 lbs heavier and have lots of photos of food and stuff.

Favorite thing I wore this week- that shiny thing dangling from my neck + boyfriend accessory in “Running Sucks” shirt πŸ˜‰

I wish it was appropriate to wear medals up to 2 weeks after your actual race. They’re just so fun.

And now for WIAW!

One evening this week, my mom and I needed a fast dinner so we picked up some to-go items from Whole Foods.

I love it there. Too bad you need to pay for everything on 3 different credit cards to avoid going over your limit.

Another night, I made Fish in Foil for the family and Kyle. This is the easiest, super healthy, most low maintenance recipe ever (that I actually got from Kyle’s family). I’ll post it soon πŸ™‚

You got your fish. In the foil. Plus a buttload of veggies. Plus a tiny bit of cheese (unless you’re Kyle and “tiny bit” and “cheese” are never used in the same sentence). Plus your favorite salsa.

You roll it up into a nice little package. Pop it into the oven. And voila. Serve with cooked quinoa or brown rice on top.

Wait, I think I just gave you the recipe right there. It’s basically that simple, but I’ll spell it out for you even more in a different post! I know it sounds weird, but it’s delicious!

And because I’m 0.00% Jewish, we had to have Matzo ball soup to celebrate Hanukkah. Actually, we just had it cause it’s delicious. I don’t even know if that’s something you would eat for Hanukkah? I remember eating apple sauce and latkes at a friend’s house growing up.

And I just looked it up and it doesn’t sound like Matzo ball soup is a traditional Hanukka food, according toΒ hanukkahcelebrations.com

Traditional Hanukkah food includes potato latkes, roasted chicken, yeast doughnuts, beef briskets etc. Most of them are either deep-fried or roasted. Hanukkah cookies are very special for the occasion.

But please enlighten me if you know more! BTW I hope I’m not offending anyone because honestly I love learning about all holidays, traditions, and celebrations.

And lastly, we’ll end with:

Favorite lunch– This amazing sandwich from my favorite deli, Brass Bear Delicatessen. I love this place, but man, food just tastes so much better after a half marathon.

Thanksgiving plans?

If I don’t talk to you beforehand, I wish you a very very Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I think Matzo ball soup is a traditional Passover dish. We make potato pancakes every Christmas Eve (usually) nom nom. I have a friend who will bring you Matzo ball soup if she hears you are sick, or having ANY sort of difficulty. When I was hit by that car years ago she brought a huge pot the day I came home from the hospital. If you want, I’ll tell her about your back and I guarantee you a pot by this evening. Aside from the medal I think Kyle is your best accessory! πŸ™‚

    1. Ohhhhh okay. LOVE potato pancakes- basically anything with potato as the main ingredient makes me happy. LOL no thanks, I would feel bad taking soup from someone I didn’t know! Kyle IS my best accessory, including my medal.
