The rustic colors of autumn are a joy to behold - I tried to remember that this week as I had to re-rake the yellow cottonwood leaves in my backyard several days in a row. I raked them off the lawn but the flower beds are full of them and they form a natural mulch around perennials ready for winter.
This is definitely "spicy tea" weather and Hot Cinnamon Spice is a favorite. I also love Seattle's Market Spice Cinnamon Orange Tea. This is a must have for anyone with a cold as the vapors from the hot cup of tea are so soothing. As you lift your cup alone, you begin to feel better.
One of the joys of this season is scouring cookbooks researching ideas for special recipes and creative dishes. This week we made our first turkey - a small one we had in the freezer and this Friday I will be sharing that meal for my "Open House" Blog Party. I will share my recipe for Yam Casserole that you can make too!
In fact, you can join in to either "Friends Sharing Tea" by linking one of your posts about tea here below or linking Friday for "Open House" something about your HOME, cooking, baking, etc. Perhaps you have a DIY project to share, ideas for hospitality, a craft or anything that brings joy to your HOME.
This little picture below is a card in a frame of Doris Lee's painting of the kitchen with all the Thanksgiving preparations .
I have had this antique oval wicker tray for probably 50 years and it was old when I got it!
