I know that I have been 'missing in action' recently, but I really have an excuse other than just being blog brain dead (which I am)! We have a new computer -- something that we have needed for a long time. For instance, I have been unable for 2 1/2 years to comment on any body's blog that had their comments embedded -- the old computer just wouldn't let me do that. Plus, there were many other issues - it was past time to update the equipment. Hopefully, now I will be a better blogger. However as I put this post together, I realize that I didn't do a very good job taking pictures of our weekend's activities. We really have been eating our way through the weekend, but there are no food pictures. Trust me, there has been some good eating going on!
It all started Friday evening when we had the friends that we worked with on the estate sale over for dinner. We had to try out the Johnson Bros. Friendly Village dishes that I bought during the estate sale. We did have food - chile cheese chicken with vegetables, noodles, fruit salad, bread, and apple-spice cake. I think that I got the recipe from a blog for the chile cheese chicken, but I can't remember who. If you are the author of this scrumptious recipe, please let me know so I can give you credit.
Then, on Saturday it was our daughter, Jenni's 38th birthday. For those of you that are familiar with her battle with brain cancer, know that every birthday is a celebration!!! The family was here for lunch, then birthday cake.
And then today, Sunday, was our church's annual Thanksgiving dinner. The women of the church decorate and host tables for eight. Once again, I used the Friendly Village dishes with my Fostoria Argus red glassware.
The amount of food was unbelievable. Along with turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, there were three long tables with salads, side dishes and desserts. Needless to say, we are stuffed for the rest of the day. I'm just sorry I neglected to take some pictures of our fortunate abundance, so you could have enjoyed it with us.
I will be joining in with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
this week for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to go by her blog for Thanksgiving inspiration!
