Thanksgiving Favorites

We are all getting into that crunch time where getting ready for Thanksgiving is a priority and at the same time, Christmas shopping and decorating are looming.  My daughter and son in law are coming to visit at the end of the week, so there will be a lot of fun times keeping me busy and that is why my lists will come in handy in the next few days.  I’ll be checking off what I can before they arrive and using down time by the pool to do a little on line shopping.  Since I need to ship all my gifts, being organized is critical.

If you are looking for some delicious Thanksgiving recipes, these three dishes are tried and true and loved by my family.  I believe that Thanksgiving is meant for traditional, family recipes and I am happy to share these with all of  you.  There are so many years worth of memories in these recipes, especially my mother’s stuffing, because sadly, she is no longer able to make it herself.

For two simple and beautiful touches to your table, this no sew burlap runner and a sweet place setting using a strip of burlap and a sprig of rosemary, make a big impact, without a lot of effort.

Let the preparations begin!

So Simple So Sweet Place Setting


  1. I really love your place setting! And yes, I get the tradition thing. It's like a disturbance in the force when it doesn't happen! You'll have a wonderful holiday.

  2. I love that burlap runner and the silverware 'wrap'. Very cute! I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  3. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your daughter and SIL. Enjoy every moment with them.


Thanks for reading!
