This is a fun project that my family actually loves to work on without complaining. It is part of setting our table for our family before sitting down to give thanks for all the wonderful goodness around us.
This year we are setting a smaller table, but the work is still there, and we need place cards to be clear who is sitting where. Yes for the three of us !! Our fun project started with gathering our supplies. We get creative and try to be colorful, interesting, and unique.
Please watch my video for more photos on how to make fun, natural, beautiful place cards with your family👍 Have a wonderful, safe holiday season💕
We can add more flavor, and color to the turkey platter with herbs, fruits, dry fruits, edible flowers, and yummy vegtables. Decorating the platter can be really fun for the little ones in your family too.
These little guys are so good for us, and with a little help can become everyone’s favorite vegetable. It is not a age thing, it just how you take the smell and the texture of these cute round cabbage looking vegetables.
A fall vegetable, Brussels sprouts are from the cabbage family and packed with nutrients. As I have learned from years of preparing them, I believe fresh ones taste much better than frozen ones. I use salt and cheese to sautéed them and serve them immediately or sautéed them with glazed balsamic vinegar.
Rich in antioxidants High in fiber Packed with vitamin C & K Reduce inflammation Regulates blood sugar
Please watch my video on how to prepare and cook a delicious side dish with Brussels sprouts 💕
Natural Scents from flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruits can help us to remember a moment in time, and can also help us to change the way we feel and think.
For me every time I peel a cucumber I can’t help, but to think Of summer days when my Mom would prepare a cucumber salad for us to enjoy with our lunch, just like the scent of ginger and molasses, will always remind me of Christmas cookies we bake every year for Santa.
Certain scents can also make us feel anxious, and restless, as some can help us to calm our thought, and help us to slow down and relax. To be aware of our surroundings, and change the way our emotions are altered simply by smelling an orange or relaxing in a bath with few drops of rose water is a wonderful way to claim and secure our happiness. Nature gives us its seasonal scents with the change in temperate and the seasonal vegetation. It is up to us to be aware and use the natural scents that can help with our physical and mental happiness.

In fall I love cooking apples and pears in some syrup for a side dish or dessert. They are beautiful, add a delicious scent to the house, and are good for us. This easy recipe that only takes a a few minutes to cook can stay in the refrigerator for a week and can be a sweet addition to a ham sandwich, great with peanut butter, and yummy with vanilla ice cream.
Peel 3 pears and 1 apple
Use a sauce pan add 1/2 cup of water
2Tsp of brown sugar
1 Tsp of cinnamon
Cook until pears are soft to fork
