While most families celebrate Thanksgiving all together in one gigantic feast, my meal this year was broken down into several smaller parts.
PART 1: BREAKFAST
Since we were all so busy this weekend, I decided to meet my cousin, his beautiful lady & little princess for a thanksgiving diner breakfast.
I ordered 2 poached eggs, wheat toast & tomatoes with some pan-fried potatoes that were too tasty to pass up.
With a side of pac man (courtesy of her crazy aunt). Ahem…I swear I’m not a bad influence.
PART II: LUNCH
Next up was a delicious Thanksgiving lunch at Mrs. Mitchell’s, a self-proclaimed granny-inspired restaurant that serves up hot tea and homestyle meals with a gourmet twist. Their Thanksgiving lunch menu was chock full of delicious brunch and lunch options.
I chose a grilled chicken salad with mango dressing, goat’s cheese, candied pecans, strawberries & red onions….
With a side of supersweet corn on the cob just because…
PART III: DINNER:
Everybody knows what a Thanksgiving dinner looks like so I decided not to snap a zillion pictures of our feast. I will say though that my gluten-free stuffing was an excellent addition to the meal 😉
No doubt the best part was getting to spend it with my beautiful friend-family. Like my handsome bestie Ryan (who also chose our soundtrack for the day…Wilson Phillips anyone?)
Traditional or no, my holiday weekend was perfect because it was perfect for me.
