Matching with Minton

Here’s another royal match to aspire for.  And no, we’re not talking about newlyweds this time.  We’re talking about a couple of Minton collections that would be a good match for each other.

Minton Henley was produced from 1970 to 1983, spelling over a decade in production.  Ornately designed with multicolored flowers, its green and gold verge and trim make it even more elegant.

Minton Henley Dinner Plate

Pair it with Minton St. James to style your table in the most sophisticated way.  Its gold-coated cobalt rim will complement the blue flowers of the Henley.  The production for Minton St. James also started in the 70’s.  But because of its stark pattern, it enjoyed a strong demand among china collectors who wanted clean designs and production lasted longer than the Henley.  Minton St. James was produced until 1998 – or almost three decades!

Minton St. James 5-Piece Place Setting

These patterns were created by Minton’s Ltd, which was founded in 1793 by Thomas Minton.  With England as its headquarters, its key products are earthenware and bone china.  The company merged with Royal Doulton Tableware Ltd. in 1968.  Royal Doulton was then taken over by the Waterford Wedgwood group of Ireland in January 2005.  As of July 2, 2015, the entire group has been acquired by the Finnish company Fiskars Corporation.

This match will surely put any formal occasions on fire with its balanced combination – tasteful and well-thought-out.  You can use it during weddings for sure!

Post-Thanksgiving Menu

Did you get tired and hungry from all the shopping you did over the weekend?  Well you still have leftovers from Thanksgiving, right?  Oh what to do with all those leftover food?!  Well, recycle of course!  After all, leftovers is said to be the best part of Thanksgiving.

Here are some ideas…beyond the usual sandwich!

For breakfast, try making Potato Croquettes or Pancakes, Stuffing Waffles, or Savory Crepes with Turkey & Stuffing.

For a light meal, you can make Turkey Ramen or Soup, Turkey Pot Pie, or Turkey Shepherd’s Pie.

Want some beer match?  Try these repurposed leftovers:  Gravy Balls, Stewed Turkey Wings, Turkey and Cranberry Quesadilla, Turkey Chili Nachos, Turkey-Stuffing-Cranberry Pizza, or Warm Turkey Terrific Sliders.

For dessert, perhaps an Apple Pie Milkshake, Cranberry Sauce or Red Wine Sorbet, or a scrumptious Pie Trifle.

You know what they say…”Less waste, more taste.”

And for your dinnerware, we recommend Lenox Temple Blossom.  Its bright and cheery design will dispel the “Black” in your “Friday.”

Tips for Thanksgiving

You may not be much of a planner like Khloe Kardashian, who just recently released her Thanksgiving menu for this year, but you still have to come up with a menu, right?

No fret.  We’re here to help.

Thanksgiving always brings about a comfortable and cozy feeling.  And nothing gives comfort like tradition and of course being around family and friends – feasting over both new and all-time favorite dishes cooked with love.

So here’s our suggestion for an All-American Traditional Menu that you can prepare by Thursday.

Forego the starters.  Jump to the main course!  And nothing beats a centerpiece like a perfectly roasted turkey.

Letting go of the starters as well as turkey stuffing means you can load up on side dishes! So here are our suggestions that you might want to try.

  • Buttermilk Cornbread
  • Buttery, Creamy Mashed Potatoes
  • Cheese Grits and Corn Pudding
  • Green Beans with Bacon
  • Roasted Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline
  • Sun-Dried Cranberry Salsa

The grand finale?  Coffee and desserts of course!  Choose between Apple-Cheddar Crumble Pie, Pecan Pie, or (should we say AND instead?) what is Thanksgiving without pumpkin right?  Your choice of Pumpkin Pie with Walnut Crust or a much lighter Pumpkin Mousse.

For your dinnerware, opt for a classic, traditional American-themed setting as well – Lenox Riverdale.  Produced in the early 1990s as part of the Cosmopolitan Collection of Lenox USA, its pink floral design will add cheer and the gold trim on this pattern will add just the right amount of sparkle to your tablescape.

So…time to get organized!  You’ll THANK us for it.
