It was so wonderful to see Igor & Shanna and be in New York for a bit. I was definitely eager from a break from work. It ended up being a lot of eating, movie-watching, and laughing. Perfect, right?! Probably my favorite Thanksgiving in a few years.
Thanksgiving morning we woke up at 4am to get go to the Macy’s Day Parade. We finally arrived and settled into a spot by 6:30 for the parade to start at 9:30. I also thought got the Macy’s Day Parade mixed up with the Rose Parade. Whoops. It was a novel experience, but painfully cold and at some point during the parade I was like: “Oh, yeah, this is what a parade is like.” Igor and I were literally worried we got frost bite, our toes hurt so bad by the time we went home a little before noon.

Unfortunately, we ate so quickly not a single picture of the meal was taken, but this was the menu:
- Rotisseri chicken
- Quinoa, brussel sprouts, and cranberry salad (I always use vegetable broth to cook my quinoa)
- Stuffing. We went with the reliable red box.
- Igor made latkes!
- Blueberry pie & tofu ice cream (which later turned int blueberry pie milkshakes. DELICIOUS)
Not to to extensive, a lot of short cuts, but oh-so filling and wonderful! You try cooking in a small New York kitchen :P. Also, Shanna’s microwave was broken, which meant keeping food warm was difficult.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
