I had company for lunch last week
The Lunch Bunch came for November lunch
My "Thanksgiving" dishes are my Spode blue and white
(they are my "good" transferware" but I also use them for Thanksgiving"
picked before we had the killing frost
in a turkey vase that I bought 49 years ago
when Jim and I shared our first November
at a dime store in downtown Kansas City.
Some things are not forever but that turkey has always held my heart.
The matching salt and pepper were bought a few years ago
Found on eBay because I decided that centerpiece turkey needed matching salt and peppers!
A simple "old fashioned" (iceberg lettuce)
salad with a local restaurant's blue cheese dressing
A shrimp and grits casserole
Not authentic but definitely tasty!
And quite unexpected for my guests
No yeast dinner rolls
They're everywhere on facebook
And I decided to try them
They are simple, but don't make a lot
(what you see is one recipe)
Mine didn't brown as nicely as the ones on the internet
They're tasty but more of a biscuit than a dinner roll
But they are quick and I will make them again!
Dessert service on the sideboard
A cranberry sauce cake
That was perfect for a November dessert!
