Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A simple breakfast

Weekday breakfast are usually simple -- eggs in one form or another, toast, coffee and juice or fruit. I love the simplicity of a boiled egg especially when served with toast soldiers to dip into. We have egg cups -- the ones that are big at one end to eat the egg from and smaller at the other to hold the egg when you bring it to table. But this weekend I found some more -- French ones in blue and white. I only got two for soft boiled eggs are served to us -- not company and I need no more than two. The dishes reminded me of the ones in Europe and so even though they were bought here many years from our last trip -- they are still memories of that trip.
They look good with the blue and white English breakfast plates. I find that unlike other colors all blues seem to go together.
We always eat breakfast in our room with three walls of glass which we've named the "Breakfast Room" -- Linderhof's kitchen is so small that there was no room for a casual table and our addition takes care of that need. It's a great place to start the day -- with coffee and then breakfast while watching the birds in the garden.

I know how you love blue and white china. You must have been thrilled with your discovery. Yet set a lovely breakfast table.

Martha;

I love, love your blue dishes. I bet you are excited over your new find.

Martha,

I think you use your "room with a view", more than any other room in the house now.

Very pretty setting.
