Thanksgiving Day Wrap-up & Peanuts! Nov. 26th

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! I'll get to my Thanksgiving eats in a moment (and they are minimal, at best!), but first, some of my eats from earlier in the week....

Last weekend I had brunch at Village Natural. I hadn't been since last year, when I had a disappointing lunch there. Luckily, their brunch was better!


I got their french toast, which came with fruit (blueberry sauce!) and soy sausage patties.

I was in Tribeca earlier this week doing some last minute grocery shopping at the enormous Tribeca Whole Foods (which is AMAZING-- it could be a tourist attraction!), and I stopped for lunch in Ivy's Bistro (on the corner of North Moore & Greenwich St.).


I got their veggie burger with fries. This was pretty good, although not fantastic.

For Thanksgiving I had some of my favorites...


Clif's Iced Gingerbread bar (a seasonal favorite!).


Mom's stuffed mushrooms... they are FANTASTIC. Between yesterday and today, I've eaten a ton of these!


And of course, mom made her signature cheesecake (OMG is this good!). This is the number one reason I'm not a vegan!!! Nothing comes CLOSE to real cheesecake.

As for the "turkey"....


And if you think that's cute, you'd better brace yourselves now!! lol



Peanut was all riled up over one of his favorite things... Q-Tips!


(Notice the Q-Tip in the lower right hand corner of the pic!)

I am so very thankful for this fluffy bundle of joy! :) Hope everyone had a good holiday!

Omg, does your cat love Qtips? Mine is so obsessed that she yanks them out of the trashcan, so gross!

^^You've got to be careful and monitor them with Q-tips! Otherwise they can choke!!! I always watch him like a hawk and only let him play with them for a few minutes before taking them away. I'm glad you brought this up though, because people really have to make sure their pets don't choke on them or swallow them (Peanut will actually swallow the white fluffy ends!).

Eeeks, I don't even like her chewing on the fluffy part. Now I'm going to have to be extra careful!
