Hello everyone, hope you have come out of your Thanksgiving food coma!
As much as we eat on Thanksgiving, when you don't host it, you miss those leftovers the next day!
I know a lot of you have already started decorating for Christmas. It is a daunting task! Oh please, don't tell me you are all done!
I started dragging out, and digging through bins.
Do I need all this stuff?
Am I decorating a Bed and Breakfast??
Nope, but every year I get rid of things and somehow new things sneak back into the house. You do it too, I know!
These dinner plates hopped into my basket on my last trip to CTS, I had a 20 off the whole order, so I couldn't resist.
It reminded me of Villeroy and Boch Naif. I have a platter and plate in that pattern that were gifted to me.
I love that it has the Nativity scene in it.
Can't wait to use it in a scape soon.
One of the desserts I made to bring to Tgiving was individual Black Forest Cakelets.
I think they would be good for Christmas entertaining, make them to look like a wreath. I am going to try!
I made them in the Wilton cakelet pan, it has an indentation, so you can fill with just about anything.
I got mine at BBB with a 20 off coupon.
I made a chocolate cake, and baked them in the pan.
After they cooled, I dipped them in chocolate, then filled them with cherry pie filling and piped on fresh whipped cream. I use WHIP IT, it really helps the whipped cream hold its shape for hours.
Pumpkin Trifle ...
Layer of pumpkin raisin bread, soaked in a bit of apricot liqueur, layer of vanilla pudding, pumpkin pudding, cool whip. Continue till bowl is full, then pipe with fresh whipped cream.
I made a few individual ones for us.
Cupcakes for the kids...
I used my Bundt pan to make the stuffing, much nicer presentation, easily sliced for serving.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, and got whatever you planned to do done! I never do, the energy runs out!
This is my 500th post, took me years to get here!
I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday, and On the Menu Monday at Stone Gable.
See you Wednesday at 7 for Let's Dish!
Thanks for stopping by.
