While I want a thankful heart all year long, November is the month especially devoted to giving thanks. So I got out my Thanksgiving dishes to share in today's post.
The turkey teapot, creamer and sugar, called "Thanksgiving," came from Home Goods a few years ago. Below is the backstamp. I discovered Myott factory was located in Stoke-on-Trent in England, but was demolished in 2006. My tea set was made in Romania.
The pattern reminds me of Johnson Brothers, and the teapot has the shape of many Sadler teapots.
My hubby made me the wooden turkey sucker holder [pictured below] several years ago when I used to coordinate dinners for the ladies at my church. I used them for centerpieces one year. It's been a long time since "Tom's" been out of the china cabinet, but I wanted to share him today.
I bought these salad plates and soup bowls at Mervyn's. Remember that store that closed in 2004? Since I only had eight of each, I sold them in my garage sale this summer, but I kept one of each to display at Thanksgiving time.
Now for our tea time treat - Apple Crisp. My son requested that I bring it to his house last Saturday, and the leftovers stayed there. The recipe is a family favorite.
10 medium size baking apples [half Granny Smith, half McIntosh]
1 heaping cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix together until well blended. Put into an ungreased 9 x 13 baking dish.
3/4 cup quick oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix topping together and set aside. Bake apples for 40 minutes covered with aluminum foil. Uncover and sprinkle topping over apples. Return to oven and bake [uncovered] for an additional 20 minutes until apple mixture bubbles around edges. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
A perfect dessert for fall and tea time!
