Hey Bloogies! I'm so sorry that I haven't done a post or been doing much commenting recently. I feel a little out of whack! I think its because after our wedding and honeymoon we came home to a full Holiday schedule! I've been feeling more stressed and less inspred as of late, but I hope that change that this weekend! I have Friday off work, and I hope to get my house in order, my decorations up, the rest of my Christmas shopping done, and host my first ever dinner guests!
My sister and her boyfriend are coming for dinner on Saturday night! This is the first time we'll be hosting another couple for dinner. I plan to make a roast (in my new roasting pan), a salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted brussel sprouts (which I've heard are delicious), deviled eggs, and a homemade pumpkin pie! I'm so excited to use my new crystal and flatware! I was planning to use my china, but after thinking about it, I plan to use my Martha Stewart Christmas dishes instead. I will post some pictures this weekend! B bought the dishes (I think they are last year's pattern) at TJ Maxx for $40! What a steal!
I have to ask for some advice on one part of my planned meal. I've never made gravy! I know it can be done with the juices from the roast. Anyone have a great recipe or any tips? I'd really appreciate some blogland wisdom here! :)
Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway! Time is ticking! HAHA!
