Two More Days

Since I have this week off for Thanksgiving break, my mom and I decided to take advantage of the time we have together. Ever since I saw the commercial for IHOP’s Christmas pancakes, I knew I had to try them. So last night my mom and I decided to get up early today to go out to breakfast then get our Thanksgiving shopping done. I opted for the white chocolate chip mint pancakes and they were so good! I would highly recommend them if you are a fan of Starbucks peppermint white mochas. They tasted just like that, but in pancake form! I also had some hash browns and egg whites on the side. Very delicious way to start the day:)

Since we were already up and out, we wanted to get all our groceries for Thursday and figured the stores would be less crowded in the morning. We were right! We didn’t even have to wait more than five minutes to check-out which is kind of a big deal for our Wal-Mart. Since I am the only “strict” vegetarian in my family, I volunteered to make most of the side dishes. The dishes that I chose include:

Angela’s This Ain’t Grandma’s Sweet Potato Casserole

Emily’s Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts

Ashley’s Stuffing Bread

Mama Pea’s Green Bean Casserole (from the book)

and Angela’s Pumpkin Pie for dessert:)

I’ll be sure to post some pics of the final products when they are ready to go;)


Since both of my BFFs are free tonight, we decided to all meet up for dinner since it is rare we are all home at the same time.  In the meantime, I need to go hit the gym and run a little to prep myself for Thursday’s Drumstick Dash. Only two more days until the feasting beings;) Have a great afternoon and I’ll see ya tomorrow with WIAW: being home version;)

Peace and Love,
