Today I woke up with a pounding headache, most definitely a result of the 3-4 glasses of red wine and few sips of champagne I had at our Girl’s annual Christmas Supper Club last night. I thought hmmm today is gonna be a long day. Well Thursday turned out to be a wonderful day.
I started off by meeting my sister in law for lunch at 5 Loaves. One of the most delicious and affordable restaurants here in Charleston. I downed an aleeve with two cokes for my headache. I then enjoyed half of a Turkey Reuben with a mixed greens salad that had roasted potatoes, mushrooms, sunflower seeds and blue cheese. Pure heaven. I will be recreating this salad at home.

After lunch we walked to Sugar, a local bakery here that makes the most decadent sweet treats. I picked up 4 cookies. I told myself that half were for Matt, when I knew in fact I would devour them all, before he even got home from work. I picked out Butterscotch, Ginger Molasses and Sugar with M&M’S (I am eating that one as I type).
Then I headed to our Thursday playgroup where I enjoyed some wine (hangover gone) and we did a gift exchange with the kids. We did another photo-op in all their cute Christmas outfits. Easier said than done, the kids were not happy with all the picture taking!
Later when the hubs got home, we sat out by our fire pit drank a goose (a term we coined for grey goose and lemon juice straight up, our signature drink of choice) and grilled some hot dogs with truffled tator tots. Now I love a gourmet meal but I am also down with dogs and tots. Truffle oil on tator tots is the best thing ever- try it asap if you never have.
