Mardi Gras is over, I did a MG table last week, too early for St. Pat's for me, so what else is on the schedule? Academy Awards!
I bought these "accoutrements" 2 years ago in the clearance bin at Cmas Tree Shops, I think they were 20 cents a package.
I started with a black cloth over a white longer one. I used a package of stars to criss cross the table.
The food safe trays were .20 also.
The centerpiece is fresh mums in a black glass with old film swirled through it and a mirror movie projector tucked in. There's a mirrored clapperboard leaning against it, hard to see.
My kitchen nook is now...
I know, it is only pretend! :)
My everyday Dansk flatware, I was thinking of red, maybe I should have?
A black and white charger from Pier One sale years ago.
The star plate is from Pottery Barn, and the little red Lionshead bowl for our condiments is from Sur la table on sale, I think they were .50.
I will write the name on the clapperboard with white marker, and a movie related question on the back. Makes for good conversation!
It will be an old movie, as I don't go to the movies anymore. I wait for them to come to the library and borrow them for free. :)
A chunky stem with a silky red napkin tucked in. (Pier One after Cmas, cheap!)
I'll stick some of those skinny grissini bread sticks in the trophies.
It may not be award winning, but it was fun!
My friend Rett from The Gazebo House is waiting for the doughnuts. I had planned to make Pazcki, pronounced Punch key, but I switched to Alton Brown's recipe.
Here's a video on Pazcki recipe, I will try them soon.
Alton Brown's recipe is here. It is a yeast doughnut and is deep fried. I got out the deep fryer I gave dh 10 years ago, he never used it!
I dipped some in chocolate, filled some with jelly sprinkled with powdered sugar, and some dipped in butter and then sugar and cinnamon.
The verdict? Ehhh, we didn't think they were that great. As good as Dunkin Donuts, but we thought they would be better than that.
Next time I will try the Polish recipe for Pazcki. My college friend's nana used to make great ones!
Thanks for visiting!
