Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Here’s a few photos to for d├ęcor inspiration for the Thanksgiving table. I’m not going to be posting for the rest of the week so I can just enjoy my time with family over this holiday break. We have much to be thankful for. I hope everyone has a peaceful Thanksgiving.

Open-Faced Crab Melt Sandwiches

Crab season is here and we’re lucky to have loads of excellent fisherman as dear friends, so they’ve kept us well supplied with fresh crab for the past three weekends, caught in Bodega Bay. We love crab at our house and I’ve been using the crab meat to make lots of crab cakes and crab melts for brunch/lunch while we watch football on Sunday.  I usually wing it with the ingredients, but my version of crab melts has been adapted from this recipe from The Kitchy Kitchen and it’s THE best, so I decided to share instead of keeping it all to myself.

It’s finally Friday and I have lots of pre-Thanksgiving shopping to do and loads of other errands this weekend but I hope to squeeze in a few extra hours of sleep, a few hours outdoors enjoying the crisp fall air, and a few hours to finish reading this book…a literary masterpiece I’ve had on my wish list forever and finally purchased last week. It is every bit as beautifully written as I had heard thus far so I can’t wait to finish the last few dozen pages. Have a great weekend.

Soup Recipes to Keep You Warm + Nourished.

We’ve had some really lovely warm weather over the past several weeks but the temperature is beginning to drop and the evenings in particular are getting really crisp. Of course when this happens I start craving warm comfort foods like soup and stew. Here are the links to some really delicious and nourishing recipes from Green Kitchen Stories

Berber Pillows From Casablanca Market

Berber Pillows From Casablanca Market

Recently I’ve been getting very fond of spaces that are accented with pieces meant to create a bit of a bohemian vibe.  I’ve been seeing a lot of interiors that have used Moroccan textiles and furnishings to achieve this look and in my quest to shop around for some of these pieces, I found Casablanca Market. They have a wealth of gorgeous Mediterranean tiles, Moroccan rugs, blankets and these amazing Berber Pillows. Even cooler is the fact that this online shop is a fair trade company and over 80% of the products offered are handmade by women.
