WHAT WE'RE EATING Thanksgiving 2011

Being the foodies that we are, we've decided to throw together a little potluck at the office the day before Thanksgiving. Everyone is bringing in their favorite dish and the verdict? It's going to be a "side show" filled with plenty of carbohydrates and a dash of sugar. We recommend a week of dedicated exercise after a party like this. 

What about you? Does your work do anything in honor of giving thanks?

Food + Words: Autumn Salad with Apple Cider Vinegar

Tartlette: Drunken Pumpkin Pie

My Baking Addiction: Sweet Potato Casserole

Gourmet: Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes

Verses from my Kitchen: Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Martha Stewart: Mushroom and Walnut Stuffing


JOSIE'S PICKS Giving Thanks

When you have unique pieces that you really cherish for the table, setting it up for Thanksgiving can be almost as fun as chowing down on the feast. My philosophy? Collect treasures that matter to you so that the meal feels special along with making the day about sharing in general. I know when my family gathers, we babble as much as we gobble remembering holidays past and telling funny stories (sometimes resulting in hilarious embarrassment). Finally, we each go around the table and say something we're thankful for.

What are you thankful for?

1. Organic Feather Tea Towel 2. Brass Candlesticks 3. Vintage Gravy Boat 4. Glass Dessert Dishes 5. Vintage Gold Band Cups and Saucers 6. Woodland Cutting Board
