Thanksgiving Suppa' Club

This month was my turn to host Suppa' Club.

Dinner included: Quinoa with Vegetable Melange, Winter Salad with Lemon Poppyseed dressing, Spice-rubbed Turkey with Cranberry Barbecue Sauce, and Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake. It was probably my favorite Suppa' Club meal so far.

Want proof of our delicious food? Well, you're just going to have to take my word for it. We forgot to take pictures yet again. I'm tellin' you, when that food enters in, we can't help but reach for our forks (instead of our cameras).

I will post recipes another time. You better believe that I will be makin' those dishes again.

So instead, here are pictures of the party itself. This time, I decided to go with a Thanksgiving Native American theme. As foodies, I thought we owed it to them, since they showed the Pilgrims how to plant corn and all.

I just hope we weren't offensive in any way.


The guests arrived in their Native attire. We listened to "Sacred Spirits" internet radio station, which set the mood for the evening. We may have sang "Savages" from the movie 'Pocahontas', and "What makes the Red man Red" from the classic movie 'Peter Pan'. Following our feast, we played Bonanza (a game about planting beans... get it?). What an adventure.

The banner I made unintentionally became the "photo booth" backdrop. I just tore large strips of fabric, then sewed fabric scraps to make Native American-y designs.

The little ball garland is actually for my Christmas tree (an early Christmas gift from my mom), but I thought it went perfectly with the banner.

Sweet wolves (a perfect Goodwill find):

Dinner Table (I need to find more excuses to use that lovely dinnerware):


I know, the little pine trees look like Christmas. But I really wanted to capture the environment the Native Americans lived in when the pilgrims paid them a visit. And I'll be using them for Christmas too. (See? I'm killin' two birds with one stone, just like a Native American would.)

Suppa' Club, thanks for a super time. I did the math, and I'm in charge of the next Suppa' Club meeting in March, which just happens to be the same month Hunger Games is coming out in theaters, which probably means we'll be having a Hunger Games Theme. You know what this means: fighting to the death for our meal.

May the odds be ever in your favor.


  1. Seriously, this looks like SO much fun! The whole time I was reading and strolling through the pictures, I just wanted to be there. What a blast, i can't believe you didn't take pictures of the food though...sounded sooo good! Atleast the empty plates look cute!
