Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!
I got so busy with my chores, I almost forgot to post! We are guests, but I have a list of things to make and bring.
Tonight I am showing a table I did when my family was here after the storm. We were thankful to escape major damage, and counted our blessings.
A classmate of my son's from College of the Holy Cross in Mass. ,was killed in the storm when a huge branch fell on him. He had just put his 2 little girls in their car seats so the family could leave and go the family who had power.
A few people contacted me to see if it was my family as we share the same last name. I ask you say a prayer for his wife and children, and for all those still suffering from the disaster.
On to our kid friendly table.
I kept it simple as the majority of the guests were my young gkids!
The centerpiece was what I keep on my table for Fall, a hurricane filled with mini seasonal fruits .
The candleholders have leaves etched on them, and are from Villeroy and Boch.
Johnson Bros. octagonal plates that I got for $1 at CTS, pumpkin soup bowls, also CTS. Everyday flatware from Dansk. Napkin ring from BBB, .99 but they are now back to 2.99
Pumpkin salt and peppers from CTS.
Butter leaf plates from Pfaltzgraf, glasses from Dansk. Napkins are old, and when they got stained I dyed them this color to get a few more uses from them.
That's it! Hope everyone has all their preparations done.
I am in the midst of a pumpkin trifle, no picture yet.
Tonight we are having Sweet ad Sour Pork, recipe can be found here.
I used scallions, and omitted the peppers and cayenne.
Very easy, and very good too!
