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.

A Fall Breakfast

Breakfast at Linderhof
(when it is just the two of us)
is always served in the breakfast room
at the old English walnut table

With a red damask cloth
The Johnson Brothers Indies
(which is our breakfast china)
The German silver
(our everyday cutlery)
And white linen napkins
(from Williams Sonoma)
(always in silver rings)
The centerpiece in fall is often a bowl of apples
These are green one in a crystal bowl

 Breakfast is White Gull Inn's Door County Cherry-Stuffed French Toast
Orange Juice
Freshly brewed coffee

The recipe in the White Gull Inn Cookbook,
a memento from our recent trip to Door County

Coffee is served in the Johnson Brothers Indies coffee pot
And syrup is served in the Johnson Brothers Indies gravy boat
It's as perfect for syrup (real Wisconsin maple syrup) as it is for gravy
(especially when you have biscuits for the gravy)

It's Thursday and I'm sharing my breakfast table with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
