Home Sweet Home

Warning....this post is heavy on the food pics....clearly we ate, we drank, but we were active!  A 90 minute post-Thanksgiving spin class, walks and a ranch hike.  So much packed into a short few days.  With temps in the high 60's, it could not have been better.  Can't wait to do it all again in less than 3 weeks, I'll be fasting until then!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday weekend surrounded by family and friends!

What we ate......

And what we drank.....a great Pinot perfect for the Thanksgiving meal, apologies for the torn label, but it was 2008 Meiomi Pinot Noir

Our best attempt at a family photo!  Everyone was too excited to eat!

A perfect day at the Ranch for Manzanita hunting - separate post to come!

I made these seasonal nachos for our annual post-Thanksgiving Shifflett party, they were a huge hit and will definitely be making a reappearance at Christmas!

My new 2nd cousin Kate, isn't she darling?!?!
One last pumpkin recipe - Sunday morning gluten free pumpkin pancakes!

After all that cooking and cleaning we needed some R&R so we headed up to Calistoga for a massage and some pool time.
