First, a little business!
Thanks so much for all of you who linked up last week and left comments.
More important, thanks for visiting so many of the entrants.
As I made my rounds to all who entered, I saw so many of you had visited others! That's what it is all about!
If I ever miss visiting you, please let me know! Sometimes I lose my place on the list, but I don't mean to miss your post!
Second, the TABLE SCAPE CHALLENGE May 9 th is Mother's Day.
Last week, while scouting out living favors I need for a Baby Shower this week, we stopped at one of my favorite nurseries on the North Fork of Long Island, Gabrielson's. They had pots of daffodils
and tulips reduced to $1.
The flowers were still closed, and I immediately thought, "What a great centerpiece!"
So the the inspiration for this table, came from the color of the flowers, red and yellow!
Red stems from CTS, Yellow flowered tumblers by Anthropologie, marked $8.00, but I paid .99 at the .99 or less store.
Red Lions Head mini bowls from Sur la table, .50.
Square rattan chargers, 2.00 from Pfaltzgraff dollar days sale.
Napkin rings are a silver metal chain from BBB, .99, napkins are from World Market, a gift from my friend Susan at Savoring Time in the Kitchen.
Susan's blog is a delight, filled with beautiful pics and recipes. She is also a clematis expert, so hop over and visit!
I used square red plates that were $1.00 from the Dollar Day sale at Pfaltzgraff, and a square yellow plate, 2.00 clearance at HG.
Red flatware by Cambridge from Cmas Tree.
It was pouring when I took this, so sorry for the quality!
These are the daffodils , the deer won't eat these, they love tulips, so I got 10 pots. I hope next year I will have a bundle of daffs like Yvonne at Stone Gable had for one of her recent gorgeous tables!
Next week my take on Cinco De Mayo, which I only celebrate in blogland!
Hey, I have these dishes I got for .50 cents and I have to justify keeping them!
The table is set, come and eat!
Last week the market had country style spare ribs on sale for .99 a lb.
They aren't pretty, but they sure are tasty!
I do them low and slow in the oven for about 6 hours.
I use ketchup, powdered mustard, oj, apple cider vinegar, and duck sauce. You can add what you like, or use your own recipe.
Recover and bake for another hour. 45 min before you are ready to eat, brush again, sprinkle with brown sugar, brush again, and leave the cover off.
Return to the oven till they are the degree of brown you want them! I serve them with additional sauce.
We had them with cold salads last night.
They are moist and juicy, and CHEAP! But delicious! Fall off the bone tender.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Can't wait to see what you bring to Let's Dish this week.
