A Christmas tradition
for Friend Shirley Ann and I
Sometime we go North to the City
Sometimes we go South to Joplin
But this year we went south
They have an amazing court house
And today we found an
Opened just two days ago!
A cafe with a definitely French flair
And a bistro vibe
The menu written on a chalkboard
It was a hard decision as to what to order
I chose a cream of chicken soup
(which was really really good)
Shirley Ann had the chicken salad sandwich which came with French coleslaw
(I'm not a fan of chicken salad out -- I've had too many bad ones -- this chicken salad was really really good)
I had soup because
I wanted DESSERT!
And we both ordered dessert --
I ordered the Apple Tart
Shirley Ann ordered
The creme brûlée
(we traded tastes -- this was the best creme brûlée that I've ever had --
And a nice size portion as well)
The antiquing before netted
- a cut crystal bowl
- an old sampler by a little 7 year old named Lucy
The present between
(entree and dessert)
- Monet note cards
- Two Kansas City cookbooks
- A wonderful sign for the garden
It was a great day
It's Friday and I'm joining Michael at Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday
So glad for your wonderful day!
Oh Martha, you're so lucky! I have always wanted to go to Carthage and just never have! Maybe next year! Glad you found some treasures! And liked your lunch, that always helps.
Wish I had known you were town! Glad you found goodies besides the good time. The flea market on the north side of the square is my favorite. She has orderly booths and her prices are usually resonable...and she will work with you if she can.
Oh, my goodness, dear friend!!!
The dining experience looks divinely, indeed!!!
I adore that you keep 'traditions' with family and friends!!!
Last Saturday, I attended a Christian Friends Ornament Exchange!!!
My friend, Julie, host this every year at her home!!!
It is the 'high~point' of many of my Christmas Traditions!!!
Photos of those 'gifts' and 'purchases', soon!!!
That's a lovely tradition Martha. As time passes it becomes more and more important to honour these precious traditions.
