A friend's husband is out of town
So we invited her and her two boys over for dinner
We ate in the dining room
With the lace tablecloth
A bouquet of flowers in a silver bowl
And the Spode Blue Italian and Spode Blue Room
It was a casual meal, after all!
Big bowls of 5 Hour Oven Stew
(the house smells amazing while it is baking)
(made like grandmother made it with bacon grease)
An old fashioned yellow cake with chocolate frosting
(because Daughter Sarah and I have been talking about this old fashioned cake)
We had a grand time
And enjoyed dinner conversation with both of her boys.
It was an early evening --
the boys, after all, had bedtime!
