Today was Lunch Bunch Day
Last Tuesday was supposed to be . . .
But "Teddy" was in town
And so we chose the following Tuesday for our monthly luncheon
It's Spring . . . deep purple iris is the centerpiece
The white lace tablecloth and white damask napkins
(Actually, the last 4 ironed ones . . . no more company until I iron the ones in the laundry basket!)
Aynsley Pembroke for the luncheon
I received a new cookbook last week
The recipes are seasonal and since this was Spring,
I decided that my April Lunch Bunch luncheon
would come entirely from the pages of this book!
Spring Fling Asparagus Soup (an approved variation of Nancy's Fiddlehead Fern Soup) and Lawn Chicken Salad served with a hot roll
I renamed her carrot cake "Queen Anne's Lace Cake" because
Queen Anne's Lace is a cousin to the lowly carrot.
Frosted, of course, with pineapple flavored cream cheese frosting
that and a cup of coffee make a great ending to a ladies lunch
