At Linderhof, we've once again begun eating dinner in the dining room.
For our first 19 years here we ate every meal in the dining room
for there was no other place to eat.
And then we built the breakfast room
Which became a breakfast, lunch and dinner room!
It was great for the two of us,
I would serve the Lunch Bunch there
But then, I felt that the dining room
Used only for family gatherings
or when we had six or more for dinner!
So we changed that.
We now eat dinner often in the dining room
Just the two of us!
At the old Duncan Phyfe mahogany table
An antique lace runner,
flowers in a glass vase and candles
The blue and white transfer ware
Wine glasses and the Waterford carafe for my "fizzy" water.
It's a bit more elegant.
The dining room
And for dinner?
Cheese ravioli baked with sauce and a good sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
And old fashioned "Mom's garlic bread"
(buttered, sprinkled with garlic salt and baked in foil)
We're trying to be good.
We have tea treats
But we've been skipping dessert
(unless we have a clementine after dinner)
It's good to be back in the dining room for dinner.
