Friday Randoms and a Trip to Nola

You know what I don’t get?  Recipes for “vegetarian Thanksgiving main dishes.”  Don’t vegetarians know that Thanksgiving is all about the sides?  And that they have the perfect excuse to have a meal made entirely of a bunch of side dishes?  What are these vegetarians thinking?!

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I’m doing that thing again this year where I do a test run of all our potential Thanksgiving dish contributions and call it “Fakesgiving.”  It’s supposed to be snowy and 24 degrees on Saturday so I’m thinking it will make for an awesome kitchen day.

While I was on vacation, Joey installed a new microwave for us!  As in, we don’t have to keep bending over to use the one we bought when we first moved in then realized it was GIGANTIC and wouldn’t fit anywhere so we’ve had it sitting on the floor for months and months.  I am now endowing him with the best husband ever award.

I just made plans to go to breakfast with my mom and sister on Sunday and I’m probably more excited than I should be.  I can’t even remember the last time I saw my little sister and I’ve been extra whiney about it lately.

Oh and turns out I took a little trip to New Orleans with my mom this week.  Because I was trying to be one of those spontaneous vacationers and because it’d been THREE WHOLE MONTHS since I’d been to New Orleans and because I wanted to see my cousin’s cute new house and because FOOD.  We celebrated my aunt’s birthday, ate Jazz Brunch at the Columns, went putt-putt golfing (um Emily and I were not expecting to have that much fun!), took a trip to Avery Island, ate my uncle’s red beans and rice and just had a blast.  Wanna see some pictures?
