Our first home had an autumn kitchen year round.

Our second home brought more sophistication as my decoration collection grows and we upgraded our furniture.




Our third home, smaller and simpler as more joined the family. Lots of room to place all the casseroles and dishes of food.

Last year's table setting included pumpkins and gourds from my aunt and uncle's farm, and decorations the kids made from handpicked pinecones and festive masks.

You can barely notice the plastic table cover over the fabric cloth. Handy for everyday cleaning without taking it all apart.

This year I'm maxed out for time and energy being pregnant with our sixth child and kids who love to touch everything. So here's my simple every day setting.

I can't wait to add this year's photo to the collection!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Sweet Potato Cranberry Dish
Cranberry relish mixed into sweet potatoes makes a delicious cold or warm dish for a side, breakfast or treat! As discovered by me.

12oz fresh/froz cranberries
1 C pineapple chunks, drained (or 1 lg pear)
1 navel orange, with peel
1 C Brown Sugar

Peel, boil, drain then mash a 1/2 soup pot of sweet potatoes. (About 5-8 cups mashed)
Add 1/4 C Brown Sugar
Add 1 C Almond Milk
Add 1/4 C Orange Juice
Stir together, add cranberry relish.

Serve with whole cranberries on top. Serve chilled or warm.

Option to add crushed pecans, candied or toasted.
