betty says: thanksgiving dinner

20 Nov

Betty actually doesn’t have much to say about Thanksgiving dinner, which surprises me. She does say that dessert for the Thanksgiving meal could include Autumn Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, or Old-Fashioned Mince Pie, which would be a “happy choice.”

Betty also asks, “Is your table attractive at mealtime? Linen spotless? Silver and china shining? Glassware sparkling? Table neat and orderly?” (I know Jen will be polishing her silver into the wee hours of Wednesday night.)

Aside from the more formal meals like Thanksgiving, Betty also offers up ideas to make everyday mealtimes more exciting.

Mealtime Surprises

Be flexible! Make mealtime a real pleasure for the family!

Surprise them with a Sunday supper on trays in the living room [yippee!] or on the porch.

Pamper a house guest with Sunday breakfast in bed. [Note to all people who I’ve ever stayed with: Why have I never received a breakfast in bed??] Let the children plan a picnic supper. Or serve breakfast outdoors. [OUTDOORS?? BREAKFAST?!! What a novel idea!!] Make mealtime a time of gay surprises!!!

    I think Betty had way to much time on her hands.
