So the first week of Nov is coming up and I have to prepare for the Thanksgiving dinner. I want to have a nice dining room and living room set up for company to come over.
So I went to my leader's page (Martha Stewart) to follow her down the path of the perfect Thanksgiving.....but I was shocked to the point of a near break down
as I realized that Martha's food was not what I wanted to eat on the day I am allowed to pretend gluttony is not a sin. This means that I will have to be creative all on my own and not be a follower.
Ok I can do this...I got this shit! Lets go!......I am drawing a blank. Ok not a total blank because there is a turkey...one thing down. Then I decide to just pull my childhood thanksgiving from my back pocket and own it! So without further ado....here is my menu.....
Roast Turkey stuffed with garlic and onions with bacon under the skin
Collard greens with ham hock
mashed potatoes and gravy
corn on the cob
String bean casserole
Macaroni and Cheese
for dessert there will be
Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie.
I was also scanning food blogs recommended by my friends and found a recipe for something chocolate and good for me that I must try out and possibly make and then destroy with a side of ice cream :).
Since Martha could not give me my menu I decided that she just HAD to help me make a pretty table. So this is the way I want the table to look:
I like this table because it simple and easy to set up and break down and limited ways for the boys to destroy it before the dinner happens.
I am seriously hoping that I am able to get this all pulled together especially since I can take new pictures of everything with my new pretty camera :).
Here's to you Kid!
