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.

A Fundraising Lunch

I often donate a luncheon to non-profits
for fundraising
It's what I can do to help worthwhile causes

Today, I had guests . . . 
they were the high bidder on my lunch

It's Spring . . . 

A Waterford biscuit barrel holds iris from the garden

My Quaker Lace cloth, the Spode Blue Room, Jim's grandmother's cutlery and a white damask napkin in a silver ring . . . 
And, of course, the menu!

We started with a salad.   Greens with a vinaigrette
Simple but classic

Lunch was Stephenson's chicken in butter and cream
and their green rice casserole

Since we had men for lunch as well as women,
I made a pie
Men like pie!

A meringue pie

Chocolate meringue
My Aunt Oceana's recipe

It was a fun afternoon
I love to share Linderhof

Lovely, lovely! The iris are so pretty in the biscuit barrel. Great menu especially for men. And I have a question-- did your pretty menu reflect the charity you are supporting? If so I think that is a nice idea since both you and the guests have that cause in common.

Well, now I'm hungry! You provided such a lovely meal in a beautiful setting. No doubt the winner of your luncheon felt that he/she will look for your contribution at future auctions. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay
