I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!! I sure did – I went home and had a blast spending time with family in Lodi <3. It was a nice breath of slow paced fresh air. I sort of just didn’t do anything for a week and just forgot about everything. I baked, I cooked, I ate, I shopped, it was glorious! Although Black Friday deals weren’t as good as other years, I still managed to score a cast iron skillet for $20. For a hella good brand. I am so excited to use it when it arrives!!! I also just bought some basic clothes that wasn’t even on sale. However, I have been lurking on the Chinese website Aliexpress every night to find cheap stuff – and I mean really really cheap. I have bought 5 sweaters, 15 pieces of jewelry, boots, and skirts on it and I haven’t even spent $100 yet. It is nuts. And the shipping time isn’t as bad as everyone says – I get my stuff usually within 2-3 weeks. I think you should try it out! You might become obsessed with it like I am. And then laugh at all the US Black Friday deals and be like HAH. I can get it for cheaper directly from the source of where its made: China.
I am now back in SD with some turkey leftovers. I seriously gained 10 pounds over break. And yet I am still making food in my spare time. And it’s the holidays so there really isn’t stopping. Sighhhh! Anyway, a new discovery I made was the deliciousness of cranberry sauce with turkey everything. I have had it before, but for some reason never really became obsessed with it until this Thanksgiving. I slabbed it on everything and I really think it would be delicious slabbed onto this turkey pot pie too.
