CHRISTMAS IN THE TRENCHERS

  Morning Prim Folk,  really really frigid weather here, minus 40 with the windchill, oh ya, we are a hearty breed here in Manitoba, or dare I say stupid, :).........Came home from work yesterday afternoon and decided to do a little decorating with some  natural ceder greens in the wood trenchers. In the very long trencher I  put in a wooden white goose my Brother made me one Christmas, love it so, added greens and  pine cones.  The shorter trencher more ceder then put in  wooden painted Santa faces  along with  grungy wax oranges, went for a simple look.  A little more decorating for the holidays and the tree then  I guess I will call it quits, I think................Also when I came in from work, Cam had two Tortaire meat pies cooking, oh ya, yummy, one for supper, one to bring to my Sister's for Christmas day.  They are so tasty, made with pork/ beef mixture and mashed potato's, then baked in a pie crust. It is a  old French Canadian recipe,  Cam told me it was  a Christmas Eve tradition with his family. After Midnight Mass, family and friends would meet at his parents  farmhouse and that's what they would enjoy coming in from the cold, hot Tortaire meat pie,mmmmm, I really enjoy it to....................Wishing you all a great day, Stay Cozy, Blessings Francine.

  7. I love the Santa's in the trencher :-) I love wooden trenchers and have quite a few.. I love the way they look with the greens you put in them.. I may have to fill mine up with some greens and I have some Santa heads that were to heavy to hang on my tree this year so I think I may put them in the bowls :-) Thank you for the idea!! Now they can come out of the tubs! Have a wonderful day and stay warm! Hugs~Melissa

  17. Hello Francine! I feel like its been so long since I have been to your blog--I've missed you! :-) But I really love what you've done with the trenchers! I have a small one that is put away, because I didn't know what to do with it, and so you've given me an idea--THANKS! I hope you are doing well, the meat pie is perfect comfort food on a cold winters day--I hope you're doing well, and your weekend is ending on a warm note! Take care!!
