Recognize this blogger?
(Brooke was too busy looking at the table next to us… they were eating chocolate cake)
It is LIZZY! Lizzy lives in San Diego now but was up north for work so of course we had to meet up for lunch. Lizzy is crazy fast and so it is so fun to see her again and ask her a million questions about her 90 miles per week running life. We went to Erik’s Cafe in Santa Clara and it was pretty good. I had the Thanksgiving sandwich which had turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce all between rosemary sourdough bread.
I wonder how many strangers I have asked to take my picture over the course of this blog. I am estimating at least 2,000. I have a lot of pictures of myself on here.
Brooke was pretty pooped after lunch so we went home to make sure she got a good long nap in before she went to hang out with her bff.
Each month there is a group of girls that gets together for a themed dinner. We each bring one item to contribute to the meal. The first themed night we did was Greek food and the last one we had was pumpkin and apple themed.
I brought the cheesy potatoes and we also had stuffing, turkey, rolls and green bean casserole. I will never get sick of thanksgiving foods. Just in case you want this ultra healthy dish (we call them funeral potatoes) here is the recipe from mis madre.
For dessert we had adorable little cupcakes. It was quite the party and nothing is better than 6 girls sitting around the table and talking for hours.
Afterwards we came back to our apartment where some of the husbands were hanging out. They went to in-n-out and ate cheesecake while watching TV.
If you like turkey…. cranberry sauce or gravy on your turkey?
Last cupcake flavor that you had? Cupcake flavor you wish you were eating right now?
Ever hung out with people you met through blogging?
