Hello hello! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend!
I spent all day Saturday in Athens, tailgating and watching the Dawgs kick Auburn's butt.
Yesterday, I did some things around the house and started prepping for next week when David and I are hosting our very first Thanksgiving!
I decided to take the traditional route and use pumpkins as our centerpiece on the table next week, but I wanted to spruce them up a little. I bought whole cinnamon cloves and wrote a little Thanksgiving message by sticking them in the pumpkins.
After tracing the letters on the pumpkins with a pencil, I used a meat thermometer to poke the holes in the pumpkins before adding the cloves (of course David walked in and asked me if the pumpkins were medium or medium rare, ha). And that's it... really a simple project!
The pumpkins smell incredible. Fresh cinnamon is one of the best fall smells! Until the rest of the dining room table is ready, these guys are hanging out on my mantle in the living room. I am praying that they don't go bad between now and next week! And if they do, my local produce store has the mini pumpkins for 2/$1, so it won't be too hard to recreate for the big turkey day.
Have you done any turkey day prep yet?
