If you didn’t know this about me already, I get pretty excited about the holidays. Like, this excited
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 😉
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 🙂
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 to 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.
What was your favorite eat this week?
If I don’t talk to you beforehand, I wish you a very very Happy Thanksgiving!
