We had our first winter storm over the weekend here in Madison. As far as snow goes, it wasn't too much in the city. I think we got about 4 inches, which wasn't enough to stop us from getting out and about.
On Saturday morning, we headed to the Monona Convention Center, where the Farmers Market is held in the early winter, to pick up our turkey and other items for Thanksgiving. Along the way, I snapped this photo on my phone of the Capitol.
In the afternoon, we headed to a tailgate for the Wisconsin vs. Northwestern football game. I had won tickets from the Isthmus that morning by commenting on one of their Instagram photos.
It was cold out, but we still had fun! We then went to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch Wisconsin lose to Northwestern, boo.
Today, we have lots of errands to run before Thanksgiving, including a trip to Target and Whole Foods. Because of Thanksgiving, it's a shorter week of regular dinners, but here's what I have on the menu:
Monday - Leftovers
Wednesday - Leftovers
We've had this meal before, and I highly recommend it! It's pretty easy to make, and you can't go wrong with the brussels sprouts, bacon, and apple combination.
Thursday - THANKSGIVING!!
We're having people over, and are making turkey, sage sausage stuffing, butternut squash soup, and maybe collards (if we can find them!).
