Lunch on holidays in our family is always snack-oriented rather than meal-oriented. This year, in addition to our usual cheese and vegetable assortment, we whipped up some cranberry meatballs and goat cheese crisps.

My sister, myself, and the boy made every meal for the family this past Thanksgiving, and it was unbelievably fun. We started off breakfast with sour cream, cheddar, and chive potato waffles and an omelet stuffed with a mix of vegetables and cheeses (no recipe here, we just got excited). My sister took care of the omelet, and I took care of the waffles. The batter for the waffles did seem a little runny at first, but the final product had a great texture and taste. They were also extra-easy to make, even for a waffle newbie. I'd never actually made waffles myself before (how is that even possible??) and they were a cinch.

I first sampled olive oil ice cream at Zaytinya's in DC. Months prior to this occasion, one of the boy's bosses had encouraged me to try it at Otto's Pizzeria, but I couldn't bring myself to eat it. Finally, at Zaytinya's, I had worked up the courage to sample this concoction--and it was beautiful. The olive oil flavor was fairly subtle, but the ice cream was oh so very rich. I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried to duplicate it at home.
