A CAPITAL THANKSGIVING

One advantage to having grown children is that at long last, the torch has been passed to my oldest son to host Thanksgiving in his beautiful DC home. I don’t escape all the work, as he and I make a great team in the kitchen and we enjoy cooking together. But the magnificent tablescape is […]
