Just a quick little post to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving
. Spent the past two days cooking for dinner with my in-laws. Miraculously, had everything on the table on time, since the turkey was taking forever to cook. And my delicious pumpkin pie recipe
turned out perfectly!
Thanksgiving is a bittersweet time for me. While I love spending time with my in-laws, I miss my family. They all live in the midwest in Oklahoma. I can imagine the meal they are having. It won’t be served on china. There will be paper plates and Solo cups. But it will be served with love. And isn’t that the most important thing?
I’ve learned from my mother-in-law the importance of courses. Growing up, all the food came out at the same time. With my Italian mother-in-law, you enjoy courses over the course of an evening, to prolong the conversation and enjoyment of those around the table. I love the conversation, but I don’t like the extra plates that need washing!
I’m slowly building my vintage table settings. My china is from the 1950s, but in a very classic white on white pattern. I have Rogers sterling plate place settings. Now the glasses may come next year to continue building my perfect vintage tablescape.
Wishing everyone a holiday filled with family, friends and laughter.
