Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Cookbook Book Club, Vol. 3, Issue 1

We haven't been together since October!
Our meeting date is the last Thursday of the month
and in November and December that's holiday time

January is always our organizational meeting
the last two years we did appetizers
This year, we chose a soup supper

The table all set for company

The blue and white Spode, blue linen napkins in silver rings, a silver basket holding pink lilies
and my favorite lace tablecloth

The club . . . catching up -- October was a long time ago!

The breakfast room held soup
Three kinds and cups to serve them in so that we can taste all three!

From the top:
Michelle's Cabbage Roll Soup, Martha's Baby Doe's Matchless Mine Cheese and Beer Soup, Angela's roasted garlic, mushroom and quinoa soup

 Barbara's tasty bread sticks

And a trio of desserts:

Sara's peach and cream cheese cup, Rita's No-Bake Eclair Cake and Liz's Apple Pie Bars

It was a good time
You can tell by the empty table!

This is the third year for The Cookbook Book Club.    We've enjoyed lots of good evenings over food and are looking forward to more culinary adventures in 2017!

This is an excellent idea for a meal. I'm always in the mood for soup this time of year.
I'll bet everyone in that photo is delighted that the idea for this cookbook club came along.
