Friends came from Nevada for lunch
It was a celebratory occasion
for it was Frankie's birthday!
And Judy decided that Linderhof was the perfect place to celebrate
The lace tablecloth
My Aynsley Pembroke
Jim's grandmother's cutlery
Damask napkins in silver rings
There's always herbs in the garden
And garden herbs make good luncheon centerpieces
This one is fennel
A three course luncheon
A blue and blue salad
Blueberries and blue cheese
Crisp romaine dressed with my favorite homemade poppyseed dressing
Chutney chicken and white and wild rice
Chocolate charlotte for dessert
A cool dessert for a hot day
Creamy cool chocolate and whipped cream surrounded by boozy ladyfingers
Served with a creme brûlée coffee
I enjoy friends coming for lunch
I get to try new dishes!
And all of these I would make again
And that dessert . . . .
