Thanksgiving: Comfort Style & Comfort Food

November 22, 2016

Thanksgiving: Comfort Style & Comfort Food

Let's face it: Thanksgiving can be stressful!  Why add to the stress by wearing uncomfortable clothes?  I put together a holiday-appropriate outfit for myself by pairing my stretchy Faya top in Burgundy with an Ann Taylor pencil skirt that has enough give to stay comfortable no matter how much I eat. My Faya top is made from a soft, stretchy knit so I'll remain relaxed and comfortable the entire day, and can focus on being with family and friends, gratitude and good food. If we decide to visit friends or go for a walk after dinner, I can easily swap the skirt for a pair of jeans and be ready to go. 

Now, enough about comfort clothing...Let's move on to the important part: Comfort food! Scroll down for a new Thanksgiving recipe that I love. 

 

Bonus Recipe: Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

This Thanksgiving, we decided to try out a delicious sweet potato recipe courtesy of friends from New Orleans. This recipe is for one batch, but we have so many Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving dinners to go to that we made three! 

Casserole:

6-7 (3.5-4 lbs) medium size sweet potatoes. Slice into ¼ - ½ pieces and boil until soft. Peel before boiling or, even better, put the potatoes in ice water immediately after boiling and the skin will separate easily. Mash potatoes with fork or mixer.

1 cup sugar (Optional -- We only used a fraction of this and you can use none at all.) 

1 teaspoon salt

4 eggs, beaten

1 stick butter - melted

1/2 cup milk

¼ cup Bourbon

¼ cup orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla

Add ingredients to sweet potatoes and blend with mixer. Pour into casserole dish. 

Topping:

1 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup flour or corn starch

1 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup butter melted

Combine with fork and sprinkle on potato casserole. Bake uncovered in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 - 45 minutes. Enjoy the deliciousness!

Mask Study: Combining Cotton with Silk, Cotton/Poly Flannel or Poly Chiffon is Most Effective

May 01, 2020

June 22 Update: We are now selling cotton/silk masks guided by this study as well as 2-layer high-thread-count cotton masks. Visit the Masks section of our shop.

A recent study testing the effectiveness of cloth masks made with a variety of fabrics found that adding 2 layers of natural silk, 2 layers of 90% poly/10% spandex chiffon or one layer of 65% cotton/35% poly flannel to a high thread count cotton mask resulted in protection that is only “slightly inferior to the N95 mask above 300 nm, but superior for particles smaller than 300 nm.”
