the end is the beginning

I’m drawing a blank with words at the moment. Our wedding will be this Saturday. That’s just 4 days away and counting.

It’s supposed to start raining here in Los Angeles and rain through the weekend. While our wedding is indoors I’m just realizing that maybe I should have thought about a jacket or at least a sweater.

So instead of going on about ridiculous details, I’ll share a few photos from my bachelorette ride. Thankfully there wasn’t too much debauchery.  My dear friend Jannatha planned out a beautiful bike ride, picnic and wine tastings. It was perfect.

Oh and there was a cat. Adorable.

I’ll try and squeeze in another post before we’re off on our honeymoon (perhaps even a wedding sneak peak) but I promise even more exciting posts while I’m gone. I’ve enlisted some bloggers from here to all the way across the continent to brighten up Cute and Delicious for a few weeks.

Thanksgiving 2009

I’m going to keep the chatting to a minimum and just show you a photo tour of our Thanksgiving this year. Enjoy!

It all started with a donut from Madeline Bistro.

The phillet no phish sandwich, Thanksgiving sandwich (which is pretty much all you could ever want from Thanksgiving), mashed potatoes and gravy.

Vanishing meal. Also consumed: biscuits & gravy, crepes filled with fruit. All amazing.

Visiting turkeys from Animal Acres. Luckily these guys will live long happy lives instead of being abused and murdered this Thanksgiving. Yeah, I said that.

Homemade pumpkin soy nog. My mom made this! I think that’s pretty awesome.

When making a pie, it is absolutely necessary to make a mess. It makes it taste better, I promise.

Best way to work up an appetite before Thanksgiving dinner. Okay so it was a rather leisurely ride to the beach. We were rewarded with a gorgeous sunset.

Brussels sprouts with capers. Oh how I love brussels sprouts.

Perfectly fluffy and wonderful mashed potatoes whipped up by Shawn. He also made fabulous gravy to go on top.

There’s that apple pie! All baked up with the infamous crumbly top. This is the last thing I stuffed in my face today.

Happy Thanksgiving! (p.s. Shawn does not like to smile in photos. He really is having a good time, don’t let the serious face fool you.)
