|Sticks and stickling|
C returned to us Saturday evening when we had plans for a night out on the town. Though it wasn't our final destination, we ended up strolling through the Christkindle market for a hot spiced wine and some selfies.

We spent the rest of the night at a hip bbq resty (one of us - ahem - had too much sake) which was really fun to just chill and take in the scene. It made for a later night than one of us is used to (ahem) but that didn't stop us from getting out on a run early(ish) this morning. We tackled another five miles in warmish 50 degrees and overcast skies. We even did some one minutes pickups (three, I believe), so we can file those miles under "training" run (we are both on board re: seriously training for a 5K)! Of note: we were both decked out in Swirlgear threads - C in the long sleeve "berry good" run top, and me in the long sleeve "race day" grey top.

Logging ten miles with a stick is just awesome! Plus we had a fantastic post run breakfast of bagels and lox (courtesy of C and her husband). All in all, another terrific weekend stick visit! Thanks for stopping by, C! You are always welcome in Chi!!
So the menu this week.. To my delight, it is a short week due to Thanksgiving and to that, I am thankful
Sunday - tonight we just did a salad (greens, scallions, tomatoes, cucumber, and blue cheese with a balsamic vinaigrette). The bbq dinner / bagels and lox breakfast needed some light veggies to balance things out.
Monday - tomorrow we are planning some BLT's but with a small twist (the usual nitrate free bacon, romaine lettuce and tomatoes, but with saffron mayo, which was leftover from last week's fennel dish).
Tuesday - I'm hosting a big lunch playdate tomorrow so Tuesday's dinner will be leftovers (meatballs, pasta salad, and a kale/spinach pie - whatever doesn't get consumed and/or we find in our fridge will be our dinner).
Wed / Thurs / Friday / Saturday - will be away for Thanksgiving and thus not in charge of dinners.
And that kicks off the 2014 holiday season!
