How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was awesome, and I wish I could show you the pictures to prove it, but I was a fail at taking them until today.
It was a lovely November morning, 65 degrees! This weather is so bizarre, but if it’s warmer than expected I’ll take it! We started out the day with a lesson in shooting! Aside from a brief time trying out a BB gun with a still target, this was my first time shooting a gun (don’t worry shooting at clay pigeons, I’m not so much the hunter).
Shooting lesson first from my father-in-law
I didn’t do so well the first time around, but on the second I hit a bunch. Hurray!
We all took turns (the others being Ben, Christian and Jackie).
As you might guess, Ben was a bit better at this then I was. Very fun!
For our last event with the family (except for Bethany, she had to fly out that morning 😦 we enjoyed a very nice lunch at When Pigs Fly Pizzeria in Kittery, Maine. I had been to the bakery in Somerville before, but had no idea there was an actual restaurant too! The place was packed and we had a large party, but we lucked out with the weather. They set up a table just for us out on the deck.
There were WAY too many things I wanted to order on this menu. We will definitely be coming back to this place.
Ben and I decided to split the Smoked Mozzarella pizza with cherry tomatoes, arugula, basil, pecorino romano, sea salt and olive oil. Yum!
To end with something sweet, we all split the Cookie Sandwich Trio. I neglected to take a photo, was way too interested in digging in. If you are in the area, I highly recommend checking this place out, awesome beer list too!
For our dinner this evening, I picked up a couple of loaves from the When Pigs Fly Bakery, Baby Spinach, Onion & Garlic Ciabatta and for something sweet (of course) the Chocolate bread. We also made a very brief stop in Portsmouth so Ben could stop off at Bull Moose Music. I stopped off at Attrezzi and picked up a bottle of Sparkling Pinot Noir and some very special cheddar cheese. Now I’m just waiting for Ben to be done with his video game so we can eat!
Yes, you should be jealous 🙂
