Menu: Saint Lucia (w/ Giveaway)

When Thanksgiving meal preparations take over the household, I like to do little things to make the rest of the week’s meals feel fun. With that in mind, I put together two festive, but relatively quick treats to make the ordinary extraordinary.  After all, why can’t every day be Thanksgiving? The theme for both is breakfast, Saint Lucia-style.

Caribbean Bakes [Recipe]
If your family likes doughnuts and biscuits, these fried discs of soft, doughy goodness will certainly be a big hit. Serve them warm with sweet, fruity jam, salt fish, lunchmeat, or even sliced cheese.

Cocoa Tea [Recipe]
This is the traditional morning drink in Saint Lucia. Think thick, rich hot cocoa with cinnamon, and a dusting of ground nutmeg.


Happy Day Before Thanksgiving, friends!  So here’s something you never knew you wanted… ancient map leggings from Black Milk Clothing.

I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. And, p.s., I instantly thought of ten people I’d like to buy them for.

They’d look great with a big sweater, under a skirt with tall boots, or just around the house.


And, just in case the thought of being so exposed makes you nervous, how about going for a layered look?

Count me in!
