Friendskuhgivvakwanzturkeyjewjesusmas Recap

I KNOW. I know. But I’m back and I haven’t mass murdered the employees of Verizon Wireless so that’s really all that matters, right? We’re going to pretend that I’m publishing this in a timely matter that’s consistent with everyone else’s Turkey Day recaps because it’s my world blog so just go with it. Please & thanks.

To say I had THE BEST THANKSGIVING EVER, would actually be putting it lightly. I’m serious. As per my last post, my good friend Jordan (whom I’ve known since pre-Mrs. Divish second grade) decided to check the Macy’s Parade off her Bucket List and spend her holiday running around Manhattan in two layers of athletic pants, drinking Starbucks’ Christmas Blend and attempting to keep me away from drowning my sorrows in carbohydrates. Two out of three ain’t bad.

Alongside freezing our toes off for six hours on Central Park West, we spent the rest of her time here brunching on the Upper East Side, window shopping on 5th Ave., black Friday shopping downtown, counting 13 abandoned broken umbrellas due to terrifying weather, cooking for and attending a wonderful Friendsgiving in the Heights, watching Elf, visiting the lighting of the Christmas tree at South Street Seaport, and drinking too many Brooklyn Lagers. I had an absolute blast during the three days she visited, and I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of her first New York City experience.

And now, for the fuzzy cell phone pictures!

Friendsgivukkah Recipes

Give Thanks

Thanksgiving week us upon us, pals! While I’m excited to have a few days off of work, spend time with some of my amazing friends and see the Macy’s parade in person, I’m a little bit dreading cooking for Friendsgiving (Or Friendsgivukkah, as I’m refer to it while pretending I have Jewish friends that will be in attendance). While I’ve had my outfit picked out for a week, I’m a little more last minute when it comes to preparing my portion of the menu. I like to pretend I can hold my own in the kitchen (I CAN if you consider “holding my own” microwaving a veggie patty and eating it off of a paper towel); but in all honesty, cooking is challenge for me. Perhaps, more that it’s something-I-don’t-allot-the-time-for-because-I’m-single-and-content-eating-microwave-popcorn-everyday, and less an actual challenge. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Here are some recipes I’ve found on the web that sound awesome — so someone should probably make them and bring them to our gathering because letsbehonest, I’m bringing wine.
