some random things for the start of Thanksgiving week…….
striped tablescape? yes, please!
Thursday my friends and I had our monthly dinner date.
we decided to go a little fancier and treat it as our early Christmas dinner and we went to the recently opened STK in River North.
It did not disappoint. From the people watching (like, a girl in a floor length white ball gown and fur coat, WHA?) to the music and especially the FOOD it was delicious. The service was amazing too our waitress was a dream.
Of course the steak and mac + cheese and every bite we had were wonderful, but the brussel sprouts salad was seriously one of the most amazing things I have ever eaten. It was laced with crack or something. We were obsessed!!
I have been googling with no luck to find a copy-cat version of the salad…. if any of you know of any, please send it my way!
I have been feeling the leopard print lately.
This sweater from Old Navy is so comfortable and one of my new favorites.
I’ve also been living in this leopard print scarf. It is a mere $20 and is SO SOFT and the perfect size print.
with Thanksgiving a few days away
(and even better: a short work-week PREACH)
I have been loving searching my favorite food blogs and Pinterest for Holiday recipes.
I also watched Ina’s ‘A Barefoot Thanksgiving’ and wished so badly I could eat everything Ina for Thanksgiving! If I can’t have my own mom’s cooking, Ina’s would be second best!
the photo of the 11 layer gratin doesn’t look as appealing as it did when they were making it on the show, but YUM it looked amazing!
some other recipes catching my eye:
I told Kip I wanted to bring these festive Jello Shots to his house for Thanksgiving but he said that was inappropriate. I mean, psshh okay, whatever. Their loss.
so this post was basically all food…..
I’m now starving.
