I prefer no music on blogs, so I won't subject you to that, but if you could hum the Skater's Waltz, it would be good! :)
This was the starting point, love the fluffy around the edge!
I saved that white shaved paper, knowing I wanted to use it for this!
I used a silver tray, put the paper on the edge, then set a round mirror on top.
An icy blue under cloth with a snowy white cut work cloth on top.
Icy blue napkin, held by a silver snowflake from Dansk. Votives are Italian from Fortunoff's years ago.
Individual butter cloches from WSonoma Outlet.
The flatware is new...yesterday. Calypso by Towle. Christmas Tree Shops.
Little silver sleds are by Gorham.
Kisses by Hershey. :)
The skates are from Christmas Tree Shop, and The Tablescaper bought them too. I am sure she will leave me in the "ice" when she does her table. :)
But I am so done with Christmas tables! Snow and Ice, well, we will have that till March! I have a Snowman table I am thinking about, and then we will all be sick of snow! :)
And now the Food part!
Chicken Pot Pie
I used my Revol chicken shaped casserole. A few years ago several of us on a cooking forum got Revol fever. I actually find no difference roasting a chicken in it than in a pan!
Cute, but pricey. I rarely use it. Save your money!
Roast a chicken, brining first is nice. :)
Let it cool, and allow your dh to eat the legs if you are so inclined, I was, I don't like dark meat!
Make a pie crust, double.
Press the crust into the pan, and fill with the cooled chicken.
Strain the drippings.
Put in a sauce pan, add some water and soup base.
Cook your celery, onions, parsley, carrots and potatoes in this.
Spoon out the cooked vegetables and add to the chicken.
Now thicken the sauce the liquid that is left in the sauce pan. Pour over the mixture.
Because you cooked your vegetables in the stock, you will have a very flavorful gravy.
Place the top crust on your pie, and make some vent holes.
Bake till golden brown...remember everything is cooked, so don't over do it!
Let it sit for a few minutes...then dig in and enjoy!
And that's it for tonight!
We skate (d) , we ate. :)
And thank you for visiting !
