Thanksgiving is the only time of the year I can eat like a beast and not feel any ounce of guilt!


My Mother's homemade Turkey 😀

I gorge and gobble, but I must look good in the process! Therefore, Thanksgiving was an excellent opportunity to introduce the first skirt from “House of Rubi”

The skirt features a solid cream base with a black scallop lace overlay. Black ribbons and sequence are hand stitched horizontally on top of the lace to give it a sophisticated feel.

Dressed and feeling good in the ribbon lace skirt, I head to the dinning room to get MY GRUB ON!

Every Thanksgiving dinner must have these two crucial components

1.  The Turkey Slicer

2. The Alcohol Advocators

These are some of my favorite meals that were served

Potato Greens, Lasagna, Sweet Fried Plantain ( The Latinos call it platanos), Sweet Potato, and Meat Pies. Potato Greens is a popular Liberian dish served with rice. The greens come from the sweet potato plant.
