The first day of my Thanksgiving break was a busy day! We woke up without alarm clocks (unless you count our loud-mouthed cat, Reagan) and dove right in. I started making a chocolate cake only to discover that I was missing a very important ingredient: eggs.
With the cake on hold, I made the icing before we had to leave to meet my family for lunch to celebrate Erik's birthday. We ate at a little German restaurant and market called Kuby's. Reubens all around, except for Erik who had the pork schnitzel - yum! It wasn't exactly the same as the great veal schnitzel we had with his family in Austria, but it was a nice treat all the same.
We dropped Erik off at SMU's football stadium to enjoy a little college football and then headed to a local church to drop off our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. I was now car-less, so Mom first took me to the grocery store to buy eggs, and then home to continue the cooking adventure.
Day2 will bring some serious quilting and the start of some hard-core studying for boards. Get excited!
