Monkeys love Fall especially the month of November.  Monkeys are thankful for many things.  We are thankful that our families are all staying healthy.  We are thankful that our children are happy.  We are thankful for having fun and supportive friends and colleagues.  We are thankful for e-meeting many new customers.  The list goes on and on......we hope you all will have a wonderful and thankful thanksgiving. 

At the studio we have been busy with fulling orders and planning for our upcoming trade shows in the winter months.  We are trying to update our booth design thus the additional work planning.  We are also trying to come up with as much new designs and products as we can.  Last month we showed some new jewelry designs.  For this month, here's a sneak peak of our new silverware products.

Thanksgiving Ideas / Recipe

Monkeys will be having a simple thanksgiving gathering this year.  Looking up different thanksgiving menus we noticed there are many different variations these days from the All-American style to Rustic to Gluten Free.  Many revolves around similar ingredients yet some are very creative.  Among all we would like to share this 7 layer salad recipe.  We believe it looks fun for presentation and also yummy to serve.

From the bottom layer to top:

1/2 head iceberg lettuce, 4 diced tomatoes, 1/2 c. chopped green onions, 8 hard-boiled eggs halved, 1-1/2 c. shredded cheddar, 1 c peas, 6 slices chopped bacon.  We might make this an 8 layers salad by adding avocados too!  Seasoned with freshly ground black pepper and ranch dressing.  Mix it up when it's time to serve.
