Thanksgiving Weekend

Well... it's Sunday and Thanksgiving weekend is officially coming to a close. I don't know about you, but I really don't get into all that "Black Friday" lunacy. Those who know me already know that long lines and I don't mix. I'm the one that will "come back later" if I can't get a good parking stall at Wal-Mart! I don't know... maybe it's just people in general that get on my nerves? LOL

Anyhow, hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. :) Thanksgiving was just Rod and I this year. I cooked for 5 hours (longest cook-time ever!) and our menu consisted of fried catfish, mac & cheese, collard greens, stuffing, candied yams, potato salad, cranberry sauce, biscuits... and of course, rice (for the Japanese in me!) We finished the night off with some bomb peach cobbler, thanks to a family recipe from Mama-Fexi herself (@ReeReeKins on Twitter), topped with vanilla bean ice cream! There was no turkey on the menu (because we don't eat meat), but I sure felt like a butterball after all that food.

I knew that once I began my cooking journey, I wouldn't feel like putting my face on after the food was done, so I opted to do my holiday make-up before breaking out the pots and pans. It was very simple and neutral, just added a little glam to it by laying down some glitter liner over my eyeliner and in the bottom inner-corners. If I had gone out, I would have just added some sexy red lips to finish the look... but since we stayed at home, I chose neutral lips.
