I hope you had a lovely week and enjoyed your Thanksgiving if you are in the US.
We had a quiet week but ate really well. I tried some new recipes - Green lentil and Sweet Potato soup that was nicely spicy and a mostly veggie beef stew were both hits. We were just the 2 of us on Thanksgiving so I made a turkey loaf, sweet potato and coleslaw which we enjoyed along with pumpkin pie.
Our son and DIL had a Friendsgiving on Saturday that was also our celebration with them so I made a cinnamon apple galette and pumpkin ginger cookies. I love to bake but don't want it in the house to eat so this was perfect.
We have decided to attend 3 holiday music events this season and make donations at each. The first was yesterday and was the Cal State U Channel Islands Chorus "A Light in the Darkness:
Voices of Hope, Peace, Love, and Comfort" concert. Amazing selection and voices plus a great organist. Followed by dinner at a Mexican restaurant with friends.
We plan to attend a chamber orchestra and high school chorus event and a community band event this coming weekend. So looking forward to it. We also love live theater and the little local volunteer one has season tickets on sale now for a great price so I am contemplating doing that as well. Supporting local arts is where I am willing to spend for entertainment.
