.......one to go! Regulars here probably remember that we do a double Thanksgiving here. One on Thursday and one on Saturday, usually with Saturday being the bigger and more intense celebration. This year we had our smallest Thanksgiving ever, with just one guest, making the whole thing a feast for three. Since we had such a small dinner, Rosa and I decided to change up the decor, and this is what we came up with:

Tomorrow we will do the table you can see in the "Featured Post" area. We've invested a lot into that setting and really enjoy the way it works with our 'semi-historical' approach to the day and menu. This year, we are simplifying a bit and cutting down on some of the less-popular historical dishes, but we are still going to feature a few favorites. Besides the usual turkey-centered Thanksgiving meal, tomorrow will include a colonial recipe for mussels in a shallot/cream sauce, and two soups: one a curry apple favorite of Colonial sailors in New England, and the other, a traditional corn & clam chowder. We are also including some very nice dry hard ciders, which are another historical beverage particularly popular in Colonial NJ.
With new dietary concerns for several family members, some old standards that featured red game meat, and others loaded with sugar, are going into retirement.
But, it will still be a sizable feast, and still focus on presentation.......
.....though nothing quite this dramatic. I can't figure out why she seems so full of angst. I wonder if she got all set up and then got a call that her guests would be running about an hour late?.....and she has to go to the bathroom. LOL
