Ruby Tuesday - Colonial kids



Mary thoughtfully hosts the fun meme Ruby Tuesday; and the rule is simple: A lot or a little red.

Today, that simple dictum takes me bak to a recent open house at the historic David Humphreys House in Ansonia.

The house dates back to the early-mid 1700s, and today, thee open hearth cooking was delicious (squash pie, pumpkin soup, real cornbread, etc). A treat!

What of the rubies? The Derby Historical Society is populated with junior docents, kids that have an interest in history and assisted in preparing the feast. The colonial dress adds the appropriate air to the open house, as well as today's ruby...

Delicious choice! Lucky are we who have or do live in the east, especially New England, exposed to so much history.
Hope your Turkey Day was great!

Excellent capture for a Ruby Tuesday. It does indeed remind us of simpler times when we truly stopped to give thanks for our blessings. Well done.

Pumpkin soup sounds really good!

That food sounds delicious. What fun that the kids get to be so involved. I'd have loved that, I've always been a sucker for a living history exhibit.

Happy RT.
