Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 91
I cannot believe it is already November! October went by too fast.
But there’s no time to dilly-dally.
So, let’s find Thanksgiving inspiration here with some of my favorite ideas, including crafts, decor ideas, and recipes to make you want more.
Whether you’re just now starting to clean up Halloween decor, no worries, I’m here to help you move on to the next best holiday.
Personal Note from Janine
Our house seems to be filled with cinnamon and nutmeg the last couple of days.
I’ve been baking my mother-in-law’s apple pie recipe and trying to tweak it a bit. I’m sure her apple pie is perfect, but I wanted to make it an apple crumble instead of a double crust.
Yes, I’m obsessed with making four pies, each getting better than the last. I had no idea that adding a thick layer of crumble traps the steam from the apples, making a runny apple sauce!
But I eventually figured out a solution, and I love this pie!
I’ve enjoyed getting recipes from Margaret! I wish I had done this with my mom before she passed away. She did give me a few copies of her recipes, but there are some that I wish I had.
I need to go through my heaps of recipes and see if I can find a few.
So, if your family has a dish you like, get the recipe; otherwise, it will be lost.

This Week’s Tip – Easy Care Table Cloth
If you look close enough to this photo, you can see my tan gingham tablecloth! I’m in love with this tablecloth! I love how easy it is to clean.
My daughter got some oil on the tablecloth the other evening, and she took a soap dishcloth to the stain, and it came right out. We didn’t need to pop it in the washing machine!
Not only is it low maintenance, but it’s also so pretty! It is an indoor/outdoor tablecloth that looks great in both scenarios.
Latest Obsession – Thanksgiving Plates
Last year, I finally broke down and bought these plates. I’ve eyed them for many years and I took the plunge.
I love how traditional they are and yet, so pretty!
We had out Thanksgiving dinner on them last year and it made the table look so dressed up and fancy.
It will now be a yearly tradition around here to use them this November!
I highly recommend these beautiful and festive plates!
