I belong to a
First, Third and Fifth
Tuesday Morning Sewing Group
In December, there was a fifth Tuesday
And I planned a soup and pie luncheon after
But then it snowed . . . so we canceled!
brings us another fifth Tuesday
And so I invited
And they came
The dining room table with plates and cutlery
And white damask napkins in silver rings
The soup - Panera Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup
It was March
I had planned a hearty crockpot soup
Alas, the warm spring temperatures called for a more springlike soup
And this Panera soup seemed to fit the bill --
carrots and celery and onions, baby spinach, orzo, chicken and lemon - oh, my!
The soup served in the breakfast room
So everyone could help themselves
And bring their bowl back to their place in the dining room
Lemon slices to garnish and a shower of Parmesan
It's a very good soup
And "pie" just didn't seem to be the proper dessert either --
With local frozen berries in the freezer, I made individual strawberry cobbler
And topped it with vanilla bean ice cream.
It was a great lunch and more visiting ensued.
I'll do again, the next fifth Tuesday
For soup and pie is an easy company lunch
