Weekly Review: 12-1-14

Thanksgiving Week
 
      It was a very busy week, with menu planning, grocery shopping,
 setting the table for us and our guests, Becky and Bob.
 

I made three pans of homemade whole wheat/honey dinner rolls.
Froze two pans for later.

 
 The rolls turned out, shall I say, scrumptious?
 

The meal, between Becky and me, was shall I say, scrumptious?
 
 
Dessert plates for the four of us, plus Tina and Cary,
who joined us for dessert--with her own cherry pie!
 
 
Do you think we had enough dessert for six people?
 

Clean up time; not so much fun as the eating...
 

 
Then naps.
 
 
Happy post-Thanksgiving snoozes to you!

    1. I have a mixture of patterns there, being a scavenger of all things pretty. :-) But the dinner plate is from Johnson Bros. "Historic America".

  5. Everything was beautiful! You know, I never realized how large the lady's head/bust statue is, until I see it in proportion to the man's head, who is sitting at the end of the table. I LOVE it! Wish I had one. ;)

    1. That bust is a replica of a 1920's era jewelry display. I call her Ethel. She creeps some people out. But I love her! Ha!

  6. Everything looks wonderful, Linda - the table setting, the delicious desserts and those wonderful rolls. I'm not sure if they'd last too long in my freezer. Happy December!

    1. The rolls are a recipe I learned from my granddaughter, who is just 16 years old. I will do a p ost on it soon.
