{The traditional pound cake that has been requested by my family for the last four Thanksgivings. I swear it never disappoints... }

Well hello there! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! How was it? I feel well fed, well rested, and just... well - and it feels quite wonderful. I spent some good quality time with my family and I think I went to bed every night last week by 10PM. It's been an exhausting few months - well year really - so a long stretch of good sleep was so appreciated! And speaking of well-fed, I've spent the last two days loading up on fresh juices and fresh vegetables to compensate for the loads of amazing food I had last week. Overall we had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with my pound cakemacaroni and cheese and lots of other things that consisted of lots of butter. So so so good... I ended my week by putting up most of my Christmas decorations (I'm so excited!) and getting in one last night of good sleep. It's back to reality, but only 3 or so weeks until Christmas!! Happy Monday!

{The freshly shredded cheese that went into this macaroni & cheese that I made. My family scarfs it down every year! Note that I do add a little extra cheese and a full teaspoon of seasoning salt instead of just 1/4 teaspoon. It needs the extra...}

{My Black Friday purchase - the MOST comfortable buffalo check pajama pants (30% off today!) that I wore during yesterday's morning lounge session... And my sweet brother that you just saw also gave me my latest cookbook "Against All Grain," which is going to be useful in helping me eat clean during these weeks leading up to Christmas... }
