Holiday Entertaining

Standard

A Celebration of Hearth and Home

I love the holidays, especially Thanksgiving.  There is nothing quite so satisfying as a house filled with the aroma of roasting turkey, the lively banter of family and friends and the carrying on of traditions.

My menu is strictly traditional with roasted turkey, dressing made with toasted pecans and pork sausage, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry chutney, fresh green peas and roasted beans.  When it comes to desserts, we are a bit less traditional opting for a creme brûlée with fresh raspberries.

Please, you’re welcome to come along and join the party!

Practice Makes Perfect

Bach’s Invention No. 13

In September I committed to practicing 15 minutes day with the goal of mastering Bach’s Invention No. 13. It was hard work and there were times when I thought I might never reach my goal, but after weeks of staying with it, I think I’ve done it.  I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoy playing it for you.

Thank you, Cassandra, for being a source of inspiration for this achievement.
