It's been a while (2013) but I'm back...

...and I have a lot to share about the past, present and future.

How Does You're Garden Grow?

Yes, this is my outdoor space, basically it is the fire escape! There is room for small pots behind the door! The southern exposure is too hot for tomatoes, especially last summer. Succulents can survive not being attended to on a daily basis!

DowntoWn Alley

We have moved! We now live, work and play all in one building. Yes, this is an alternative lifestyle and it's not for everyone, but it is working for us for the time being. Installing the art in what I will call the flat, was the first task to make the raw space feel like home.

This was our "salon" wall at the house.

Setting the Thanksgiving Table

I will start on Wednesday:

Iron the Calvin Klein serviettes
(while the pies are in the oven)
Extend the table
Gather the extra chairs
Set out the serving ware on the buffet
Lay out the place settings with the glassware

I am going to decorate the table with persimmons my stepfather Tosh
picked some special for me with the branches attached (very Japanese).

My Dad made this footed server. It will go beautifully with the table.

The Little Kitchen

Thanksgiving for Twelve!

Turkey Gravy
Cranberry Relish
Roast Beef
Beef Gravy
Yorkshire Pudding
Roasted Parsnips
Mashed Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Garlic Brussel Sprouts
Pumpkin Pie
Pear and Pecan Tart

The turkey will be cooked in the "set it and forget it" rotisserie.
Vastsi will bring the Orange Cranberry Relish. My Dad will bring the Green Bean Casserole.
No hors d' ouvres because it ruins the appetite!
