Five Favorites (Thanksgiving Ed.)

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday! Mine was spend with C here in Boston. It was wonderful and I am very thankful that I get to be with him. We made a delicious meal. We made cornbread muffins (lightened up) with ricotta cheese and caramelized onions and topped with honey butter, cornbread stuffings (homemade!) with sausage and cranberries, sweet and russet potatoes au gratin (delicious!), buffalo mac and cheese with bacon and mushrooms, honey glazed ham, and pumpkin oreo cheesecake (favorite!!!) for dessert. Everything was delicious. Today I am heading out to shop for Black Friday. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend everyone!

We ordered the Capricciosa, which came with sliced prosciutto, mushrooms, ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese with tomato sauce. It was fantastic!

2. Last week, my fiance and I traveled all the way out to Woodlands to find the hospital where I will have my interview the following week. We decided to stop by Shake Shack since it was nearby and we have always wanted to try it. We both got a burger and shared the fries and a peanut butter concrete. It was amazing and definitely worth the trip out there.
