Insert the usual astonishment here. How are we at the end of November already? Time is just so weird.
November was a big month. We made a trip to Washington state for my great grandmother’s 100th birthday party. I also got to take my baby to tour a university in the area. We had a blast together, but I don’t know how we got this old. We also ate a ton of greasy American food that we can’t get in Scotland. It was very indulgent.
On the plane, I finally got a chance to watch The Big Sick. It was absolutely perfect. Such a simple and simultaneously unusual story that was deeply affecting. Luckily we were on a relatively empty flight, so no one was sitting next to me as I laughed, cried, and gasped in astonishment. If you haven’t seen this yet, you absolutely must. It’s genius.
The internet is absolutely jam packed with delicious holiday food right now. I’m hoping to try these Easy Flaky Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls because they look like a buttery bread pillow, and I want to eat ten million of them.
I’m feeling this Cheesy Herb Baked Mashed Potato Gratin because there should be a potato recipe for every day.
This Pumpkin Buttercream Swiss Roll would be a real show stopper on your holiday table. I think we all need a bit of that in our lives right now.
December is obviously the best month of the year. Let’s make it extra awesome.
