I'm hard at work, perusing cookbooks and planning what I'll take to the family Thanksgiving Feast this year. Thanksgiving can be a stressful time! Shop early to avoid fist-fights over sage in the spice aisle. Don't let lengthy food preparation send you over the edge. If you find that family togetherness aspect unnerving and can't seem to find it in your heart to forgive Cousin Melanie for getting drunk and wrecking your Chevy Blazer back in high school, at least consider how to put the "fun" back in "dysfunctional." Take her car to the store when the ice gets low...
This week I'll post some delicious recipes to share. I'd also like to invite you to consider your Thanksgiving table. Are you prepared? Take care of the staples first: the turkey, the liquor and the emergency stash of anti-anxiety pills you may need when Aunt June and Uncle Bill start going at it. But do also consider those extra flourishes that can make the table look really special. Like these:
Vintage candlesticks found here.
Mod gravy boat found here.
Relish dish set perfect for cranberry sauce!
Last but not least, an ashtray for Aunt Louise.
