Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. We took an extra day to recover from the tryptophan hangover!
We celebrated on Saturday…Sue and I, my sister and her boyfriend. Even though there were just 4 of us, we had enough food for 10! What’s Thanksgiving without a fridge full of left overs?
While the turkey was cooking we took a short road trip to Brace’s Orchards for Apple pie and the best apples anywhere. Right around the corner from Brace’s is the place where we adopted our 2 new family members, Frankie & Sammi. We had to show my sister from NYC Blue Chip farm, a 35 acre no-kill animal refuge.
Saturday was such a beautiful day, all the animals were out getting fresh air. There were horses in the ring, dogs, some running loose, others in open pens. It’s definitely worth the trip if you are driving around the Back Mountain some weekend.
That's my sister Suzie doing her best to convince this horse that there's PLENTY of room in her Manhattan apartment.
Even though there’s just been 4 of us the last few years, smells in the kitchen instantly bring me back to the many Thanksgivings I spent in New Jersey with my Mom & Dad. Great memories.
