Notes from the Weekend: Thanksgiving

by Marissa on November 29, 2016


Wow! I’m super-late posting this week’s notes, because … Thanksgiving. 

David and I spent the holiday in Louisville, Ky. with my family. I mentioned in last week’s notes that I had been there the week prior to do some workshops and events. I then transitioned into family mode for the holiday. 


We started Thanksgiving Day with a Turkey Trot in Louisville’s downtown Waterfront Park followed by a quick breakfast at Con Huevos, a Mexican-inspired egg cafe, then returned home so I could finish my Thanksgiving contributions. 


Being dairy, gluten and sugar-free at the Thanksgiving table meant that I was in charge of quite a few dishes.


I made Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Grapes, Gluten-free Stuffing, Roasted Squash (a variation on this recipe), Paleo Pumpkin Bread and a Pecan Pie Slice from I Quit Sugar. 


We spent the rest of the weekend resting, working out, shopping and cuddling with my newphew, Reed.  


We also threw in holiday cocktails at the Seelbach, a historic hotel in downtown Louisville, and a seafood dinner at Brendon’s Catch 23 which was one of the best meals we’ve had in Louisville. 


I wanted to check out Rye, a local restaurant’s, Christmas-themed Pop Up Bar so we stopped there for a nightcap. I was underwhelmed because I think I was expecting something closer to Rolf’s a Christmas bar in NYC, that is totally over the top. Rye had some kitchy decor and Christmas themed drinks but it didn’t hold a candle to Rolf’s.  

How was your Thanksgiving? What was the highlight?
