I hope you all had a wonderful safe Thanksgiving filled
with love, family and friends!
Here is a simple table setting.
In a big Italian family
you may set a setting for eight (two went on the end),
then you never know.
At the last minute double arrive!
I used orange tulips and just gathered vintage French jugs in
different sizes. I used my white Vietri Italian dishware!
Its my favorite!
It was simple and quick!
I took images as I could, people were hungry and
ready to visit.
I started cooking at 8 a.m. and did not finish until
4 p,m. Everyone arrived at 3.
Here are a couple of sides and a 22 pound bird but,
I couldn’t take all of them
my family was hungry and so was I. Lol..
We have a traditional secret family stuffing we always
have every year. I use Martha Stewarts method,
using cheese cloth to cover the bird and baste with butter
every hour. I have used other methods before but, find this
is the best way!!! This bird came out perfect!
I made extra, extra stuffing and everyone had leftovers
to take home!
Simple carrot salad, cook carrots until tender,
toss with olive oil, salt and pepper, dash of vinegar,
parsley and chill.
Corn with melted butter, salt and pepper!
Simple and sooo good!
Green beans with bacon! Need I say more!
We also had mashed potatoes but…..
And just because… my sweet hubby bought me flowers!
He is so awesome and loving!
I couldn’t ask for a better man!
Ok, all this talk about food has gotten me hungry. Must be
the baby. I need to get me some more stuffing. Lol, and
suit up for Black Friday!!!
Off to shop for Christmas now!
Be back soon.
Have a beautiful day!
