We "Tomato Girls" met at Linderhof
End of Season Luncheon
We "Tomato Girls" are Master Gardeners
who are doing trials on tomatoes
for K State
It's been an interesting year
And I've learned more about tomatoes than I ever thought I would know
And since the tomato harvest (and care)
is winding down,
with some of our harvest
I made lunch . . .
Chilled creamy tomato and basil soup
served in tea cups
A perfect size serving to start our
The soup was made from
the Mt. Majesty tomato
A lace tablecloth, a damask napkin in a silver ring
Jim's grandmother's cutlery
And the Spode Blue Room
The Spode Blue Room is perfect for an all tomato luncheon!
A centerpiece of yellow carnations and mums in a silver flower holder
(which makes a nice round arrangement but low enough that you can talk across the table)
A crystal pitcher holds the iced tea
Fried Green Tomatoes
(Chef's Choice Orange)
served with tomato jam
A mixed green salad with
a roasted tomato vinaigrette
And a slice of zucchini cornbread
Everyone got a menu with a botanical tomato
And dessert was a tomato spice cake
garnished with red pear tomatoes from my garden
I think it's fun to have three courses and all three courses
are tomato based!
The flavors were different with each course
And it was fun to see how many different recipes in which you can use tomatoes!
It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
It all sounds delicious!
Martha this was FABULOUS to read about and to see! Thank you!
How impressive. I loved tomato pudding we had in Virginia. You have some great recipes and lots of knowledge!
I would love to be a guest at your luncheon. Such delicious food served at a beautiful table and interesting conversation too!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
