LET ME HELP YOU SET YOUR DINNER TABLE

Hello Friends…

To those who live in the US, you know what time of the year is. Yep! It’s Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, goes without saying we all know everyday IS a day to be thankful; but here goes the history of Thanksgiving.  To everyone in general, well this may serve as a useful info for you especially  if  you like to be prim and proper in your hospitality/presentation.

Here’s a graphic on how that dinner table is really supposed to be set if you ever wondered what the correct way is. I am guilty of random placement in the past 🙂 . Click to enlarge.

As for the  menu,  I almost always don’t really do (some things) as the Romans do when I’m in Rome, I tend to do things that the Romans will find intriguing and interesting enough to maybe, copy.  In that light, so as to be not much of a rebel, my thanksgiving menu this year will be about 85% a deviation from the norm, I will of course be cooking  the  proverbial turkey, dodo (fried plantain – my fav), Jollof Rice, sauteed vegetables, tossed salad, rolls, stuffing, pad Thai shrimp, sweet potato casserole, pan roasted brussels sprouts,  with sides of spring rolls, meatpies, fruits & pumpkin pie as dessert and/or cheesecake (my fav), and any other spontaneous item that pops up in my head tomorrow {self confessed Queen of Spontaneity } 🙂 . It’s really a simple and intimate one this year. So what’s on your menu?

Above all, I am thankful  for you, me & mine and  all of God’s blessings..

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Happy and Enjoyable Thanksgiving!

Cheers
