It's been cold on the prairie
A little too cold in the breakfast room
(We've not "winterized" it yet)
And that cold morning found us breakfasting in the dining room
Where for the first 20 years, we breakfasted every day!
We use our turkey dishes a lot during November
(like we use our Christmas dishes during December)
Just two dinner plates and two salad plates
They suffice for the two of us
They're my beloved blue and white
Which means that the "everyday" blue and white goes with them
So I can still set a pretty table without buying more cups and saucers or a tea pot!
Turkeys on the plate
Turkeys on the table
I bought this turkey the year after we were married
A Woolworth purchase
(Napcoware from Japan)
I loved the colors
And the fact that he can hold flowers for the table.
Somewhere I have matching salt and peppers
But somehow they've been misplaced!
And he has a "mate" --
I have a pair
For I like things in pairs
One on each side of the centerpiece
Or one on each side of the mantle.
At the table, I have one facing each way
I want everyone at my table to see a "behind"
(Not just one side!)
Breakfast on this cold morning?
No porridge for us
But rather a frittata
A favorite breakfast
(For I can put it in the oven, drink my tea and do the crossword while it's cooking)
This one has cheese and peppers and onions and potato and a good shower of fresh parsley
My favorite biscuits to make are cream biscuits
(self rising flour and cream)
but lacking enough cream I decided to try
sour cream biscuits
(sour cream, butter and self rising flour)
Perfect with the frittata!
It's Thursday and I'm sharing my November breakfast with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
