Good Evening, Ladies, hope March is bringing you fair weather!
It is cold here, but at least it isn’t snowing! I don’t think Spring will be arriving early, still lots of snow and ice around and not enough of a warm up to melt it.
With color lacking outside, I thought I would add some to my table.
I have had this topper for awhile and never used it. It reminded me of Pennsylvania Dutch designs.
These wooden shoes were brought back by my uncle in the 1950’s. He was in the Merchant Marine and traveled the world. He brought back many interesting things and told great stories!
We have wonderful pictures of him in Cuba, when it was a great hotspot. Very sad what happened to that country.
These were definitely NOT “made in China” , they are hand carved and painted.
I used a rattan charger from Pfaltzgraff, and a napkin ring from worldmarket.com. , to pick up the color of the wood in the shoes.
Red dinner plate was in clearance in CTS…
I liked the swirls!
Yellow square salad plate from Pfaltzgraff, a dollar!
Blue speckled soup crocks were a Cmas gift from Alma, The Tablescaper.
They are by Von Pok and Chang. I heated them in the oven and poured the Leek and Potato Soup into them, and it stayed warm till the last delicious drop!
Butter pans from CTS, .69, bird s and p, Pier One. Blue Stemware are by Dansk.
Flatware is Fiesta.
How do you feel about cauliflower? It is very “IN” you know, lol.
I am not a big fan of veggies, but I do like cauli. I tried making it like rice.
You put it in the food processor, then pan roast it. There are plenty of recipes, google till you find one you like. Here’s one, but there are a lot of them! I like mine browned, so I put it in the oven. I added some butter, or evoo, and minced onions. A little grate of parm can’t hurt either! Ok, so it isn’t rice, but it will do if you are trying to get more veggies in your diet.
I had mine with sweet and sour chicken with carrots and snow peas.
Please remember the 6th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl is next Wed. Please join in and link up something Irish/Green to add to the celebration. Everyone is welcome!!
Stop in for some Irish fun, and see who is the holder of this Irish topper making its way through blogland.
It started with Marigene, In the Middle of Nowhere.
She graciously sent it to me with instructions to pass it on.
I sent it to Retta at Gazebo House. She fashioned a tag for it so the names could travel with it.
I wonder who has it now?
Thanks for stopping by! I am down with Shingles, but know I will be feeling fine for the St. Patrick’s Party on the 12th.
