Been cooking since 5 am! I'm almost ready -- just three more dishes to prepare and DH has to light up the grill.

Here's a peek at my table and my Brown Butter Pumpkin Cake

I know what you're thinking . . . what's she doing with a non-quilted table runner? I need to remedy that, huh? (I've made a couple since I started quilting a few months ago, but neither of them are the right color scheme for this fall table.)

By the way, if you are interested in the cake recipe, here's the link:

I have made it many times and it's scrumptious.

See, Joan, I told you miss-matched was great. No one would have noticed the table runner wasn't quilted though. You just had to share that so we wouldn't kick you off the forum? Oh, and I never did get my invite for the right time to show up bringing hostess gifts, so I guess you will just have to eat my share of that beautiful cake. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Your table looks fantastic and so does your cake! My families favorite cake is a toss up between home-made carrot cake or Italian Cream Cake. I'll be making one when my kids come home for the holidays.

So what is your special occasion?

I am part of a "dinner club." There are seven couples and we rotate hosting dinner at our homes, one about every 6 weeks until everybody has a turn. Two of the couples are Indians (vegetarians) and one is Turkish, so we always have great food and great variety. My mother was a fantastic Southern cook, so I tend to make my own brand of "New American" comfort food -- kind of like Mom's cooking but with a twist.
