If you celebrate it… – Happy Thanksgiving my friends! Those who wonders – No, we do not have Thanksgiving in Poland 😉 (answer based on a real question.lol)
Anyway, this week is full of me and my hand(s) doing something with the food. I don’t know how that happened but it did.
On Friday we had orange honey chicken stir fry for dinner. This dish is not the easiest/fastest to make but it is super delicious and my entire family loves it.
On Saturday I had a photo session. It was great! The weather forecast said it’s was going to rain so we were prepared with umbrellas and the right kind of boots, but it actually didn’t and we had fun improvising 🙂
and there was a plenty of time to play with my favorite thing: reflections!
It’s my new baby; I have decided to go public with the photography business. I am very excited about it!
On Sunday I took the picture of my boots (the blue ones) after being partially cleaned… I could not think of a better picture, not only because from the minute I woke up I had the most painful headache ever, but, because that day I was re-living the previous day over, and over again… especially while looking through all the pictures I had taken.
The next day, fixing pasta salad for lunch, with a terrible headache (again) and no energy to think of a better self-portrait.
Very recently we have started introducing solid food to No.2.
She does not like it.
I don’t like it.
She is very stubborn and does not want to eat it.
So I give her a face cloth with which I wipe her face. She likes to play with it and bite it, so while she opens her mouth to bite the cloth I shovel the food in it. It does not always work. Most of the food ends up on me, on the floor, on her… Maybe finger food would be a better idea in her case.
Getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner.
Making cranberry sauce in orange juice, with some brown sugar, cinnamon and orange peels.
The cranberry sauce is the only dish I really enjoy. I do not care for the rest of the dishes served during the Thanksgiving dinner.
This year there is only us celebrating… without being guests, having guests (or the in-laws).
And because of that I am not cooking a lot and I am not stressing myself out.
I had the time and the energy to bake two cakes:
– Polish cheesecake, using mix of Mexican and American cheese (now you can call it a multinational dish !!!)
– apple pie for my husband
Hmm… Instead of a turkey, we roasted a wild duck, and a chicken in case if the duck failed (which of course did fail). Today was the first time I roasted whole chicken and duck. The chicken was delicious while the duck didn’t cook through and it made terrible, greasy mess inside the oven (our dog is going to be very happy in a few minutes).
Right now we are all making a room for some desert and a cup of tea.
I hope you guys enjoyed your Thanksgiving at least as much as I did.
