The Long Weekend

by Kelsi in ,


 

I finished the last of the apple crisp this morning for breakfast. As delicious as it was, after three days in a row I am looking forward to a more "well-rounded" start to the day tomorrow. We had a wonderful holiday at home with family. I wore my new favorite hat for the day-before preparations...

I roasted chickens instead of turkey. There was stuffing with lots of fresh herbs, mashed potatoes and Ina's gravy.

Pie of course...

My stand-by shredded brussels sprouts and kale salad with a lemony vinaigrette was a nice compliment to the other richer dishes...

One of my favorites was this chard gratin...

Today, we were ready for a quiet, lazy Sunday. We slept in and stayed in our pajamas all day and I made this really lovely lentil soup which I will definitely be making again. 

The holidays are here. Now it's time to do a little shopping.
