Date Night time at Cafe Frank
When my mother and father come they shoo us out the door on their first evening so we get a date evening they usually get high quality time with the boys whereas everyone seems to be contemporary. We by no means refuse this plan – haha! We set them up with some pizzas and desserts and headed downtown to Cafe Frank for our first go to.
We had wine, fried mushrooms, and superb completely cooked sirloin.
And a chocolate bomb for dessert!
Household Night time Out at Passiflora
After a day stuffed with Thanksgiving casserole cooking, toy enjoying, gymnasium classes, and playground time, we headed out once more, this time as a gaggle, to Passiflora!
Mazen liked his nachos
I’ve had this home salad twice and it’s so good and refreshing. And all of us devoured the chips and queso!
Afterwards we glided by Kilwins for ice cream.
We began the date with donuts and Nice Harvest muffins plus eggs and fruit. And a pleasant chill Peloton experience.
Mid-day we stuffed ourselves within the automotive. Dad volunteered to get within the again with the casseroles!

I made my mother’s quaint brandied candy potatoes – marshmallows and all! Simply the way in which I like ’em.
We had a bit little bit of every little thing basic: broccoli casserole, dressing, mac and cheese, corn pudding, cranberry sauce, and turkey.
And for dessert: 3 sorts of pie from The Pie Chest. The pecan was my fav!
Thomas and bought up and went to ACAC the place they have been having a Fitsgiving celebration. I did a short-but-sweet exercise and hung out enjoyable within the sauna. Mother stated “don’t rush again” so we went to The Juice Laundry for inexperienced smoothies after!
