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.

The Monthly Luncheon

Tuesday was the Lunch Bunch
One of whom had just came back from
Thus a French feel to lunch

I was originally going to lunch outside
I love a garden lunch
But the 90 degree temps and 100 degree heat index
moved the luncheon inside

An outside pot full of white geraniums was the centerpiece
anchored by two lead birds
a last year Christmas gift from the Lunch Bunch

A table of white and blue -- 
The white of an old linen tablecloth, damask napkins and geraniums
The blue of the Spode dinner plates and bread and butter plates

The menu . . .

Roasted baby beets and goat cheese salad

Vegetable soup with a spoon of pesto

Homemade rolls

 German Cherry Pie

With Kirsch whipped cream

We lingered over coffee
sharing snippets of information
about our children.

It's Thursday and I'm sharing the June Lunch Bunch Lunch with Cuisine Kathleen  for Let's Dish and with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

We could get into so much trouble together on the hunt for blue and white. I love the table with the Blue Room Collection plates. German Cherry Pie...I hope that you share the recipe at some point. Sounds interesting, and I'm sure delicious. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

You know I love your blue and white collection. It is perfect for any occasion. The menu looks soooo delicious. I have never heard of German Cherry Pie.
Have you published that recipe? I still make "Martha's Apple Cake".
Have a great day, Ginger
