Stop a minute….Breathe….Think…..Thanksgiving is a week away and there is still time to think about it…think to enjoy it…In my family (I being one of six siblings and I am in the middle) it is THE holiday of the year. We have had some of the same food items on the table since the Pilgrims landed, and they will continue to be on the table until the moon is colonized, I am sure. On the other hand, as new family members are introduced over the years, new favorites and standards join other food on the table, and new food traditions are established.
Therefore, Fat Robin Pottery will be open this Sunday (Nov. 23) from 12 to 4 if you need serving pieces for any of your favorite foods this coming week. I am well stocked with my garden leaves serving pieces–parsnip trays, sunflower leaves, kale leaves, ferns, to name a few. Also available are slip trailed bowls, and my mamool ware–pottery inspired by the Lebanese butter cookie, mamool. I wonder how turkey would look served on a great big zucchini leaf platter?
A great selection of pottery perfect for hostess gifts, something to impress your son’s girlfriend (please take him) or favorite cousin or aunt awaits you at the Robin’s Nest (my heated garage, 26 Simmons St., Newport )….During half time at the Patriots game, sneak away for a few minutes. As usual, call (401-846-9323) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make arrangements to come another day–I’ll be here.
