Turkey Napkin Rings or Place Cards for Thanksgiving

Pin It

These turkey napkin rings are fun to make and a cute addition to your Thanksgiving table.

You could also attach a name tag so that they will serve as a place card.

I used punches to punch out the pieces, but you could go with basic, hand-cut shapes as well.
You just need some basic supplies: cardstock, googly eyes, scissors or punches, and adhesive. I used a black pen to outline the pieces for some added interest.

You can assemble these yourself, but it also makes a fun kid craft.

I made these 5 years ago, long before I was blogging, and was just reminded of them, so I decided to share them...

This is how they looked on the table: see if you can find them, they're pretty small compared to that big table (which isn't ours - we celebrated Thanksgiving elsewhere).

Cinnamon Steamed Apples Recipe: Easy and Delicious Side Dish

Pin It

Are you looking for a simple but delicious side dish to complement any meal?
Look no further!

I really enjoy this simple dish.

Apples (I prefer them a little tart, like Granny Smiths or Jonagold, but you can really use any kind)
Brown Sugar

Begin by washing and coring your apples.

Slice them, about 1/2 inch slices.

Put them in a frying pan with 1/2 cup of water.

Add raisins, cinnamon and brown sugar to taste.
I don't give exact amounts, since it depends how sweet you like your apples to be.

Put a lid on the man, and steam your apples till they are tender. It shouldn't take long, maybe about 5 minutes.

And that's all! Easy enough to eat with an every day meal, but also kind of festive, so it could also be a side dish for your Thanksgiving dinner!

Simple, right?!
