144.8…Giving Thanks

I knew the second I walked into Bunco at Silvana's house, I was in for a treat. She had a chef and staff there preparing all sorts of fabulousness. The first thing that caught my eye was the sirloin on baguette slices topped with caramelized onions, blue cheese and a drizzle of balsamic reduction.

I basically parked myself in front of these and went to town.

As if that was't enough, there were delicious crab cakes and a cheese platter as well!

Silvana's theme for Bunco was "Giving Thanks" and the food was all about fall comfort foods. I felt pretty comforted enjoying the butternut squash soup that was placed before me:

Dinner was equally comforting:

I give thanks to Silvana for spoiling us rotten last night!!!

I wish I could say breakfast and lunch were as exciting but I can't. English muffin with peanut butter and a grapefruit. The grapefruit came off my tree so I guess that's exciting!

I took the kids to school, went to an appointment, ran some errands then home for lunch:

The usual.

I have an event to attend at the school tonight, then it's straight to bed. Staying up last night wiped me out. :(

What are you thankful for?
