So this week’s Terrible Tuesday wasn’t really that awful.
I believe this is 100% due to the fact that it was treated like a Thursday of sorts.
This year our company decided to do a lil’ Thanksgiving Potluck in the office. It involved Jaime and I making a list of a well-balanced Thanksgiving meal and everyone signing up for “the easiest thing I can pick up from the grocery store across the street”.
And you can feel free to laugh at the “make due” tupperware dish in the corner. More dishes that looked like this showed up after the picture. Working with all guys leads to such things as “well I brought three [literal] cans of corn, I’m just going to leave them here and you can figure out what to do with them.”
Ok then. Does someone have a can opener?
Had all the guys gotten their way, the potluck would most likely have consisted of wine and cheese and crackers. Which is not bad for a cocktail party. But a Thanksgiving lunch at noon in our conference room? Eh.
At least I know the cookies were homemade. The cinnamon roll sugar cookies recipe was broken out again.
Which also means I suffered from sugar overdose earlier in the week.
It always happens that way. Le sigh.
I saved back some of those cookies to also send home with my dinner dates for the evening:Angie and Mon!
Being as how they’ve been so good to me and seem to sort of enjoy my company from time to time, we decided to throw ourselves a little “Friendsgiving”. But at a restaurant. Mostly because we don’t have time to cook a full meal on a random Tuesday. But also because Mon doesn’t like turkey.
I called her unamerican and weird.
But since I’ll get my fill of turkey over the holiday season, I was quite content to meet up at Stonewood Ale House and order myself a fabulous meal of baked french onion soup.Just this.
Ok, this and beer.
After a full day of eating and making multiple trips to the break room to snack on the leftovers, something simple and small was needed.
I don’t make a habit of dining out midweek, especially when I’m still trying to kill the last of all that mac and cheese (Ps- thanks for all the suggestions of what to do with it!), but every once in a while? The good company and conversation is much appreciated!
With that I should probably go. Time to fill up on coffee and scavage for more pot luck leftovers in the breakroom…
Seriously. I’m living in the land of leftovers.
What more do you expect during the holidays?
