Turkey & a Nephew Day!

On Sunday evening we cooked up a turkey, with some homemade cranberry sauce and truffle potatoes/ veggies.  We didn't want to buy much for groceries this week, since we'll be leaving on Thursday, so we figured the turkey would last us as our meals for the week.

I'm on holidays for a couple weeks, so yesterday I had an auntie/nephew day!  Whenever I have time off, and we're not gone away, I like to take the little guy and spend a whole day with him. 

He came over in the morning.  I had coffee, and he had hot chocolate and played a bit, while telling me about school, and showing me what he had been learning.  He chose grilled cheese and broccoli soup for lunch - mmmmm!  After lunch we made a gingerbread house!

We read a Christmas story, did some art work ...

Watched Home Alone 2 with chips and dip ...

And overall, had a great little Christmasy day.

When uncle Christopher got home from work we went out for all-you-can-eat sushi to Sake.  Giovanni always orders the roll with the most fish eggs - his favourite! 

He also liked the sashimi and tofu.  He's a pretty good eater!

How is your week going so far?
What is your favourite sushi roll?

Fun! I can't believe how big your nephew has gotten. That is awesome that you got to spend a whole day with him. I love that he is such an adventurous eater!

My week is kind of crawling by... work is slow and I feel like everyone else is out of the office! Plus anytime I am anticipating something, the days seem to go slower! But it will be Thursday before I know it!!

My favorite sushi roll is probably spicy tuna! Mmmm, I love sushi!!
