Thanksgiving was wonderful this year-much more put together than last year. We had less people, but they were people whom we love dearly. I did most of the cooking the day before, actually, so when Thursday came I really only had to form the rolls and put the turkey in. Once I did have the bird in, whom I named Fredrick, we set out to set the table. Complete with our new set of Pyrex tableware…
Here we have our table…Each place had a dinner plate and “salad” plate-which we used for rolls. Then in the center we have our Butterfly Gold salt and pepper shaker accompanied by the matching gravy boat. Our napkin rings are the Corning compatibles.
There is Freddy! I must say, he was yummy.
And here we have…the sides. Everything except the candles on the counter are Pyrex. Starting from the left:
Mashed potatoes in a large Friendship Cinderella dish
Carrots, broth and celery from the pan in a small Butterfly Gold Cinderella dish
Cheddar Cheese on the cheese plate
Crackers in the Cracker Barrel (original, huh?)
Stuffing by Hannah in a new Pyrex loaf pan
Mac and Cheese by Jesse in a large new Pyrex casserole dish
Corn and Peas in a split Town and Country dish
Roasted potatoes in the promotional piece Zodiac
And lastly, two plates of turkey meat on the platters from our unnamed full set.
You’d think we’d be done, huh? You think wrong…there is still dessert!
Here we have our two pies. Chocolate, in a 10 inch classic Pyrex pie plate and pumpkin in a newer flavor savor. In the green nesting bowl we have Joe’s homemade cinnamon whipped cream. And of course, in the center, oatmeal drop cookies. The cookies, however are not on a Pyrex dish. I love that little bird plate…we found it two summers ago at a yard sale.
So, there you all have it. Another Thanksgiving brought to you by the magic of Pyrex! Hope everyone had a great holiday.
