I started the weekend off with a hair appointment to touch up my highlights. Perfect timing! I love love love those first few days when my colour is the freshest. It's all about that toner for me.
After dinner, we had a little family play-doh session hosted by my 2.5 year old niece. I got in the holiday spirit and made these:
On Sunday, my mom and brother arrived bright and early. And the cooking started right away. I was very eager to get my hands really dirty this year and really make most of the food. My mom was mainly supervising and directing the show. We started with making tranditional Polish apple pie, aka szarlotka. It differs quite a bit from the apple pie that is known in North America and while both are delicious, I prefer the Polish one because it's what I grew up with. We used my grandmother's recipe and it turned out amazing, like always. But this was the first time I made it pretty much on my own! So we had to skype my grandmother during the process to prove that her first grandchild isn't useless haha!
The Polish soccer game was on during all of this so the boys were glued to the TV and my mom and I cheered on from the kitchen. It was a very exciting game and we won!! This means that Poland is officially in Euro2016!!!! (don't worry, lots of football and playoff baseball was watched as well!)
Ok that's it. So many photos. I may do a separate post on the apple pie and how we made our turkey.
Hope all my fellow Canadians had a very wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
