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 Leisurely Saturday Breakfast
Winter (and late Spring) Saturdays are lazy days at Linderhof. Long leisurely breakfasts. Special foods, too, that we save just for these Saturday breakfasts.
Tea for me (English tea -- PG Tipps -- brewed English style -- strong) and coffee for Husband Jim (French press always and now it's Costa Rican brought home from our trip). A yellow pitcher holds milk for coffee and tea.
Tablecloths (like napkins) are used for more than one meal -- after a few days they're not as "crisp" as they once were.
I enjoy fruit for breakfast while Husband Jim prefers his breakfast fruitless and juiceless.
We've been cleaning and rearranging in the kitchen -- breakfast is on our English Mason's Fruit Basket which used to be Mother's. I have odd amounts of the different pieces for it is "what's left" of her set.
And for this lazy Saturday breakfast?
Eggs Baked in Ramekins with Parmesan -- topped with a spoonful of caviar. Truly a special breakfast. The recipe from Anna Pump's Country Weekend Entertaining. Husband Jim and I like baked eggs and they are an easy way to have eggs (especially for company) without having to stand over a stove dealing with individual eggs for everyone!
It's Thursday and I'm sharing our leisurely Saturday breakfast with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday.
