Good evening, Dishers! Hope these waning days of August find you well and finding dish bargains. :)
Thank you to all who took the Summer Fun Challenge last week. Some of you really got into the swim of things! More about the challenges next time.
Tonight, in honor of all my teacher friends who are dusting off their chalk, and all the little ones, sharpening their pencils, a little table for you!
Our menu is on a dry erase board I trimmed with duct tape years ago. Nothing gets out of this house without a fight!
I started with a blackboard black cloth on top of a to the floor checked one.
Some marble notebooks are scattered and glue sticks added. A pencil encircled vase holds some susan’s and asters.
A small chalkboard reminds of the school year.
Yellow ruffled charger, and red plate, CTS. I liked the scroll work on the plate, $1.80.
The yellow square plate is from the $1 sale at Pfaltzgraf, they haven’t had one of those in awhile! I have the dinner plates in yellow, and red from there too. Come on Pfaltzgraff, time for a good sale again!
The napkin is orange, from CTS, .26, as well as the blue bakers which I believe were $1.99.
Swirled blue and green flatware by Cambridge, also from CTS.
I wrote the name on with chalk on the “black board” cloth. It is just a cotton cloth.
Each place has a new box of crayons and a green apple.
I think I got all the colors of a box of crayons in, the basic box, that is !
Crayon colored red and blue candles , green Antropologie glasses, via the .99 store and blue hobnails via CTS.
I can’t resist the school supply sales this time of year. Notebooks, filler paper, all for a penny. I pack them up to give to my dil to use for the kids during the year. The pantry at church is always in need of school supplies for the needy, and for pennies you can afford to be very generous.
I wish all those headed back to the classroom, a good year.
I will sit on the porch and toast the school bus as it rolls by, then have a second cup of coffee and read the paper, things I never did during my 33 years of teaching! :)
An abundance of sale peaches inspired this quick week night dinner.
Pounded and breaded in Panko chicken cutlets, topped with sauteed peaches. Slice the peaches, saute them with some butter, scallions , apricot brandy, and a splash of orange juice. Serve with rice, broccoli and snow peas.
