I got to finally experience a real turkey dinner (shocking, I know) and really good gravy too, which I've always been weary of. I have eaten so much over the weekend that I don't think I will be hungry for a good while this week, not to mention my fridge is full of leftovers...
It started off with some Halloween Costume hunting with Tiffanny...
I wonder what food in Greece is really like because sometimes I feel that the options on the Danforth are quite limited to Souvlaki or Gyros, I'm sure there are other things that Greeks love...my favourite: Spanakopita.
The next day I spent the morning with two friends who were cooking a chicken for themselves instead of a Turkey, they let me watch and learn their cooking skills...(We also went thrift shopping, I can't wait to show you the amazing founds I got!)
Turkey, Ham, Meatloaf, Two Lasagnas...all the sides, two types of mashed potatoes, amazing rice that I got to take home, and then four cakes and pies as well as a giant fruit platter for dessert!
My plate was FULL and each time I looked down, it seemed like I wasn't making any indent whatsoever...so much food!
Then on Monday morning I had breakfast with some amazing friends from high school...
...and then I had another Thanksgiving dinner with my one of my bestest friends who I rarely get to see anymore.
I am definitely thankful for all this food, I am also thankful for this amazing new family that I will have! I am thankful for my friends, who always find a way to cheer me up, and to my amazing (and patient) boyfriend.
Things can be pretty tough sometimes, but when you stop and consider how lucky you are, you realize you can surpass any obstacle. x
