Behold the giant turkey!

Er, giant Buzz Lightyear. We were at a party on the block where they blow up the balloons:

After my haircut, I met my mom at her work and we went to Cercle Rouge for lunch. It's a cute little French bistro that we've gone to a few times together, because it's so close and tasty! I have to commend myself for not going down the street to American Apparel as I usually do...

Bread and butta:

Butternut squash soup:

Onion and goat cheese tart (the onions were sweet and carmelized) and a side of mixed greens:

I was so tired on the subway home that I fell asleep! Good thing I woke up before my stop.

I had two clemmies in bed...

Caitlin and I met up at Starbucks and had delicious peppermint mochas. I used to get these ALL the time in high school. I asked for it without whipped cream, but they forgot and put it on anyway. I scraped off most of it, but some was stubborn and didn't want to part with my cup.

We took a bunch of photos together, but they all looked so bad! As Caitlin said, "Katie let's face it, we aren't the most photogenic people..." Of the 10+ years we've been friends, we have TWO pictures together that we like, from when she visited me in Paris. But doesn't she look adorable here?

I went to a cocktail party with my parents at one of the most amazing apartments I've been to in New York, with a gorgeous view overlooking Central Park.

I had a glass of white:

Raisin walnut bread, green beans, salad, poached salmon (can't really tell that's what it is here), potato crostata, and a couple olives.

A glass of red (which I drank with a small brownie square and didn't photograph, sorry!):

More raisin walnut bread (hard to beat) with a little camembert smeared on it.

I'm still feeling a little snacky so I might have more food.... There definitely won't be enough tomorrow. Juuuust kidding. Expect baking pics in the AM!

Hope you all have wonderful holidays. What is everyone making?

I'm not making anything this year. My aunt loves to cook, so I'm letting her take care of everything.

Happy Thanksgiving!
