On Our Menu: November 28 - December 4 & Thanksgiving Recap
Christian and I took a little vacation last week and spent 4 days in Milwaukee with his family. On Thursday we had Thanksgiving dinner with Christian's mom's side of the family. I made a Nectarine & Blackberry Pie which was just okay. My favorite dish of the night was Auntie's mashed potatoes. WOW! They were so amazing. Driving back to his parent's house we saw people tenting outside of Best Buy waiting for the Black Friday deals. We stayed away from that craziness!

On Friday we went indoor rock climbing at Adventure Rock until our arms were ready to fall off. Every time we visit there I am in awe of the people who can climb upside down - as in under an overhang. I can hardly get to the top of the 40' wall when it's vertical!

The rest of Friday and Saturday was spent walking the dogs on the trails at the nearby park, shopping at thrift stores, eating, watching movies, and eating some more. Wait until what you see what I found at the Goodwill store. I'll post more on that later this week.
On Sunday, we attended the baptism of Christian's best friend's newborn who is also named Christian. First, we met at the Mineshaft in Hartford for lunch where we ate another huge meal. Just what we needed!

Next, we headed to a small church near the base of Holy Hill for the baptism service. Someday we'll have to go back and tour the Shrine because it looks absolutely amazing. The Ice Age trail also runs through that area so I wouldn't mind doing a little hiking either.

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you get to enjoy a long weekend? We didn't get home from our mini vacation until yesterday evening so our menu this week is all oldies but goodies.
