I have had this fabric for a tablecloth for a few years, from Walmart. Never knew exactly what to use with it.
Blue Willow it is!
The centerpiece is a vase of fresh baby's breath with a touch of red.
Chargers are from Noritake outlet, Blue Willow from various grocery stores. Blue stems are from Dansk as well as the pitcher. Blue place mats are from CTS.
The toile napkins are from WSonoma Outlet, great sale, 2 yrs ago. You know my motto, "Anyone can pay retail!" :)
Knotted napkin rings are replicas of those very expensive ones, from Cmas Tree Shop, so, very inexpensive, very!
Blue and white ceramic tea light holders were 1.00 ea at Home Goods clearance. The white ruffled serving bowls are from HG also.
Red flatware by Cambridge from CTS as well as the square white lacey plate and the round blue and white bowl on top.
I hot glued a round dish to the white square dish for dipping sauce and hot mustard. Dh likes the latter, I pass on that! The blue and white spoons are from Walmart.
For dinner? My version of Pork Fried Rice. Lots of pork, very little oil.
Cook the rice and cool. I do mine the night before and refrigerate.
Saute the cut up the seasoned pork in a little oil, add onions , garlic, soy sauce, powdered mustard.
In a small amt of oil fry the rice, scallions and 2 beaten eggs.
Add meat mix to the rice mix and continue to cook on low heat.
I add Duck Sauce, Dai Dai, and more Soy Sauce to taste.
Before serving, sprinkle with chopped scallions. Serve with Snow Peas.
I ground my own pork,just a piece of pork loin,(that way you can control the amount of fat) cooked it with some minced onions and seasonings.
Egg roll wrappers from the market.
Fill with the pork mixture, finely sliced scallions and snow peas and shredded cabbage. Roll and fry. Drain, and serve with dipping sauces.
(There several egg roll how to videos on the net if you need a refresher, I did, as I hadn't made them in years!)
I hope you won't be hungry in an hour! :)
