I don’t like fish…I don’t care how you make it, uh uh..
Well, I like tuna salad, and if I have to I can get a McD’s filet o’ fish down, but all those years of fish Fridays growing up, just did me in!
So Lent is a challenge for me…8 meatless dinners..and no full of fat and calories mac and cheese, pizza, etc!
But that’s what it is supposed to be..a sacrifice.so I'll try...
My table tonight reminds me of Lent. I hope that isn’t irreverent :)…but purple is Lenten…the statues were covered in purple until Easter.
This cloth is a little funky.., ok , a lot funky..( don't worry, Sue, you didn't hurt my feelings..I'll offer it up..:) but such a good bargain, ..You know I didn’t pay that! Wouldn’t…I think it was 5.00
Not my colors at all..purple, black, brown, white, gold, green and even a little turquoise…I thought maybe I would use it for a Mardi Gras table..but I never got to it.so just an every night dinner table.
So you will have to look at last year’s here
I had these handled purple bowls I’ll use for soup…Home Goods..
Flatware by Dansk, Stems I forget, and water glasses are very old and thin, they were my mom’s.
The rounded soup spoons are Oneida. I like rounded soups spoons, and they are not that easy to find in stores..
Please stop in at Between Naps on the Porch to see what Susan has in store for us this week…
And my friend, The Tablescaper used the cloth in a fun Mardi Gras tablescape..go check it out..fun to see from everyday Lenten :) look, to party!
Now for the Big Cupcake…I made it Sunday as we had a special Valentine/Birthday dinner for my ds. ( This is an old picture, we are covered in snow!)
Here’s what it looks like after you bake it in the BIG Cupcake Pan by Wilton….
It serves the same number as a regular cake would…10 to 12..
And here it is ready to light the candle..
The bottom part is iced in melted chocolate icing, and the top is fresh whipped cream.
I cut the top and bottom in layers and fill with creamy chocolate icing….
Thanks for visiting…I’ll be here for Marty’s Cloche Party and Foodie Friday.
