Friday Favourites

E had his second round of cross country this week and I got to drive him there.  It was pouring all day which made the conditions pretty rough, but were stayed as dry as we could. 

He came 97th out of 100, which was not his desired result but he ran his little heart out.  He said he got a cramp at the start of the race but never stopped running.  We are proud of him!

Sharing some hot chocolate with his buddies after the race. 

Fried Green Tomatoes is an old movie, but it is on Netflix and it still holds up.  I had forgotten how much I liked it.  

With Dave away and the kids not eating too much, I had quite the task of eating up the Thanksgiving leftover by myself.  While accomplishing this, I discovered one of the best thing I've ever had - I took the mashed potatoes, turkey, dressing, gravy, and brussels sprouts and fried it up together.  It was pretty good, but I'm sure if you put gravy on anything it makes it 10 times better.  

The boys had swimming this week and I made some macaroni and cheese for them to eat beforehand.  They did pretty well eating in the car.

We are celebrating E's birthday this weekend!! Can't wait. 

Linking up with AndreaErika, and Narci.


  1. Way to go, E! I bet the hot chocolate tasted good! I watched that movie recently, too. Still good. To Wanda! Have fun celebrating with E this weekend! πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽ

  2. Happy birthday to eat! I love how you said “I got to drive him,” it certainly is a privilege to do these things for our children :-)

  3. We make a "leftover pie" layering turkey, stuffing, squash and potatoes in a casserole dish with plenty of gravy poured over each layer or maybe every other layer making sure to end with the potatoes on top. Then we bake it in the oven until hot and bubbly. While it sounded a little gross to me when my girlfriend shared her recipe it has quickly become our favorite way to use up any leftovers from Thanksgiving!
