So Mom promised you a picture of my table . . . and here it is. She also suspected that my table was going to turn out to be an elegant sort of a situation, so I’m just going on record to say that I am using a canvas dropcloth from the hardware store as my tablecloth. Things can be only so elegant when you’re rockin’ the drop cloth.
I decided to do the obligatory cranberry jello in individual glasses this time, and slap some stickers on the side so that they could double as place cards. However, I’m beginning to have the vibe that they look like small scented candles rather than anything edible. Cranberry jello scented candles. On the other hand, I don’t care.
At this point I’m ready to sit down and have a glass of wine with my husband before bed! I have a 25 lb. turkey sitting in a buttermilk brine, I’ve made about 2 gallons of turkey broth to use in everything tomorrow, the cornbread is drying out for the dressing, the pie crusts are in the fridge, the spinach dip and deep fried cashews are ready for the Axis and Allies festival before dinner, and I don’t remember what else I got finished but I’ve crossed everything off my list that had to get done yesterday and today! Best of fun to all of you tomorrow!
