Loving Life after 50

Black and White in Stripes and Windowpanes and talking Turkey (dinner)

So to all my American pals are you turkeyed out? Are you tired of leftovers or most importantly  have you sent a care package my way? I do so love turkey dinners and all its fixings, so lets talk Turkey for a moment, are you up for it?
Our turkey dinner is pretty specific, a combination of our two traditions, no question the turkey, stuffing, whipped potatoes and gravy are standard, then for me I have to have my squash and cranberries ( preferably the Ocean spray jellied stuff so possibly not really cranberries right). Kent’s tradition called for peas, carrots and pierogies. So we have now added all of the above to the menu, I know seems excessive but its well worth it and occasionally we will have dinner rolls to really load up the already carb loaded meal LOL
and of course wine, lots of wine, red and white, normally a buttery Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir.
maybe a Riesling ( ok not maybe that is an actually) and then there is the table (s)
What has to be on your table every year??
I take pride in my table ( or this year tables)

 and lets not forget dessert, Kent and Ryan love their pumpkin, Nic is an Apple guy (as was I) and now I am a sugar pie gal, love me my sugar pie ( and a special treat this year were the Apple Roses I baked)

How cool is this, I get to post about Thanksgiving twice each year, now if I could figure out how to celebrate and post about Christmas twice a year, that would be awesome.
and to celebrate your Thanksgiving I decided to wear some contrasting yet accenting patterns, a theme of Black and White everything.

I found this sweater at Target in Watertown ( have I mentioned how much I love that store and location) and paired it with the J Crew dress I have worn a few times ( Here as an example) The Shoe Dazzle pumps are a great match right? My Kate Spade Watch and as for the necklace, well I made that, how talented am I?
