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.

Sunday Brunch

Some Sundays we have Sunday Lunch after church
And other Sundays we opt for brunch

A bigger first meal of the day
We fix special foods
And linger over coffee

Blue and white makes for a very pretty table!

Instead of fresh flowers a very old blue and white platter filled with cherries

Some of which

Went into the muffins
baked in my grandmother's cast iron gem pan

A basket full for the table
to go with

The potato and basil frittata
(from my favorite, The Barefoot Contessa)

Along with little sausages it made a great brunch.

We served ourselves,
had an extra muffin and another cup of coffee
And had a very enjoyable Sunday morning!

It's Thursday and I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish and Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Such a lovely brunch. I am taking notes on the way you and your husband enjoy your home in your retirement (although I hesitate to use that term about you!!!! you are so busy!)

A feast for two...I'll check out the fritatta recipe. Ina Garten never fails to please. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

If I have a favorite meal, it has to be brunch so I'm very drawn to your table. The same is true of blue and white of which I have none, but I'm so liking it that may have to change.

I am SUCH a fan of the frittata!!! SO easy to make, and the possibilities are endless!!! I've never made a potato-basil one, but it sounds good!!! Hmmmm....think I know what's for breakfast this coming Sunday morning!

Have a great weekend, and try to stay cool. It's hotter than a firecracker on the 4th of July here in the Midwest!!!!!!!
