THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

BFF weekend. That's what the 3-day Thanksgiving holiday was pegged as. And not the BFF that comes top of mind, but BFF as in "blackout from food". So, in the spirit of the weekend, this post stays in theme- here come the food pictures! Since I typically don't post pictures of food, I'm going to dedicate this to two people who love to do so, my friends Willy and Ryan who were with me on this BFF trip.

Here's a small photo sample of what we ate:
