MENU LIST for FEBRUARY 15th

With this month's theme of foods for the historical dolls I am particularly reminded of the importance there is in striking a balance between accuracy to a time period and keeping an item visually appealing, relevant and relatable.  I am always striving to strike that balance.  I hope I have claimed that middle ground with this month's menu.

For now, I shall tease you with only a list, and no visuals.  Those shall have to wait until closer to the 15th.  

I will amend and add items later this week, as time allows, as there are more items I am hoping to complete.  As always, items in my Etsy shop are available on the 15th of each month at 12 noon EST, on a first come first serve basis.  

Each American Girl Historical doll and era is represented this month, with the exception of Kaya. Sorry, Kaya collectors.
