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.

It's Oscar Sunday . . .

And we're having a "do" at the Liberty Theatre. The Jim's (who are not gems) and their wives are hosting and it was put together as a fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce. Sixteen very lucky people will walk the red carpet to the theatre where there will be libations and food and fun and games as we watch the Oscars on the theatre screen.

The cookies are one of the desserts (as are moon pies and chocolate dipped strawberries) -- and we have an elaborate array of appetizers to be munched on during the ceremony.

The hosts will be in black tie and the gals will be dressed up as well -- this, after all, is the Oscars!

We've only seen True Grit and The King's Speech -- both Oscar worthy pictures. So we'll be rooting for those and the actors who were also in those movies. Amy Adams (who cut her acting chops at the theatre in the town where Daughter Sarah lives) is another favorite.

It will be a another Grand Evening in our little town on the prairie.

I'll try another comment! Your party sounds like a lot of fun - you get up to some serious antics in your prairie town. We'll be watching up here, too.
