One of the organizations I belong to sold poinsettias as a fundraiser.
I sold far more than I was expected and last Friday I picked them up and delivered them
All except the last two
And they were bought by a friend who lived out of town
who said she'd be by to pick them up
"Come for lunch" said I.
The table in the breakfast room
Set for a simple soup luncheon
A mix of blues -- Spode Camilla soup bowls, Spode blue Italian bread plates, and Johnson Brothers Asiatic Phesant dinner plates. My "grandmother's" German silver soup spoon and some English butter knives. An everyday white napkin in a silver ring.
And no crackers with our soup -- but rather
The Corniest Corn Muffins from Dorie Greenspan.
Made with corn meal that I bought at a mill in Sandwich, Mass.
One that both my guest and I toured when we vacationed in Cape Cod in September.
And the very last of the post Thanksgiving turkey
made into soup (and it was the best turkey soup I've ever made)
We usually don't do dessert for lunch
but . .
I had a few leftover jam thumbprints left and they were perfect for an after lunch sweet.
