We loved hosting Friendsgiving and ate leftovers for the entire week leading up to actual Thanksgiving. However, that didn’t hold back our appetites.
Alex’s uncle Soo Hyun is a very talented chef and plans a gourmet menu for the occasion. This is what he spoiled us with this year.
I baked two loaves of sourdough in the morning: one to eat with the cheeses, the other for sourdough stuffing.
Everyone lent a hand, the entire dining table was set to the brim, and everything turned out so delicious!
Then in keeping with tradition, we went to bed by 11PM and woke up at 5:30AM to hit the Camarillo Outlet Mall for some Black Friday deals. I bought more mature, business casual attire and am really trying to upgrade my wardrobe.
On Saturday, we met up with Leslie and Matt at the Anaheim Packing District, and I finally checked out Morning Lavender boutique in Tustin.
And then on Sunday, the gardeners returned to finish clearing the backyard. This weekend, we’ll be building our raised beds and planting new trees.
