I am doing one of those double post thingys. Very nice since these two are so close together. :-)
Between Naps on the Porch for hosting TableScape Thursday every week.
And thanks to Gollum with Designs by Gollum for hosting Foodie Friday every Friday!
Please click on these links to to go these ladies blogs and see all the wonderful tables and food. A site to behold indeed! Many many ideas as well. Now for my post. ;-)
I wanted some plain dishes that I could use and mix and match as needed. And I need a 6 piece place setting. I found that set at... Big Lots! Actually that was 5 months ago. I found them onsale, 30+ piece set on sale for $19.99. At that price, I could use them once and donate them! It came with a serving platter and a large serving bowl, 6 of each: coffee cups, dinner plates, salad/luncheon plates, soup bowl and ....
Cereal Bowl. Yep, 6 (one was broken) honk'in big cereal bowls! 3 heaping cups of cheerios in the bowl! Can you say "Portions?" LOL!
I kept two of the bowls and I use them for serving bowl. :D they are a perfect size!
I love the creamy colour and how it stacks so well on the table.
The turkey plate looks great! The dinner plate almost looks like a charger.
Foodie Friday's menu is:Turkey Post Roast
I started out with a 4lb boneless turkey breast. Any brand or size will do. If you have one of those really large crock pots, you can do a whole turkey.
I chopped up some potatoes and carrots to cook with the turkey. You can add onion and celery, mushrooms, what ever your family will normally eat with a pot roast.
Wash kale very well and chop. Place in pot with a tad of salt, 3 cut winter onion, pepper, minced garlic, ham if you have it on hand.
Bring to a boil and turn heat down to a simmer. Cook until tender then add a tad of olive oil.
UMMMMMM UMMMMM ! this stuff is good!
Tender and juicy! Just plate it up and watch it disappear.
My family loves turkey cooked this way and I never throw any of it out. We often have leftovers for 2-3 meals. The turkey will also make wonderful sandwiches, if you have enough left over. It is very good!!! And anything that my family will eat, will make me happy to cook. You can put this in the crock for the day and supper ready that night!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to go by Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch to see more tablescapes or to participate in Table scape Thursday.
