It's always a fun challenge to bring the Fall inside as we decorate for Thanksgiving. This year, all the turkey feathers laying on the ground inspired me and I went a little "turkey crazy"! I washed them in Dawn and went to work. Add some oak limbs, corn, pumpkins, pine cones, and leaves, and you have a festive, unusual, and inexpensive decor.
Feathers at the Dinner Table
Feathers on the Porch
The wreath is my favorite. It added a nice touch to the front porch.
Turnip Green Soup
After all the decorating, there is nothing quite like a hot bowl of soup to warm you up. I promise this will become one of your Fall family favorites (if you like turnip greens, that is). All you do is add all the ingredients below into a large pot, heat to a boil and simmer for 30 mins. Add a skillet of cornbread and you have a hearty southern meal.
1 pkg of conecuh sausage (cooked under the broiler and sliced)
2 cans of rotel
1 pkg of Knorr or Lipton Vegetable soup mix
2 pkgs of turnip greens
2 cans white northern beans
32 oz Swanson Chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
