Saturday was a busy day at Linderhof . . .
Company for Lunch and Dinner!
Luncheon Company were Air Force Reserve Friends Don and Denise
who came to visit our Fort and the Symbols of Sacrifice
We invited them to stop by for lunch . . .
A table for four in the dining room
My blue and white plates, of course
A pretty summery table runner
Blue napkins in silver rings
The plates on wicker chargers
And a bouquet of garden flowers in the center of the table
A cool lunch for a hot July day
Homemade chicken salad, fruit and a roll
Strawberry cobbler and ice cream for dessert
We spent a good part of the afternoon visiting
And after they left I cleaned up and prepared for
Dinner company were dear friends Jack, Shirley Ann and Steven
Invited because he did a favor for me and I can't pay him . . .
in money but I can pay him in steak!
Same table, same napkins (well Jim and mine were -- I did get out new ones for the company!),
same plates and chargers
Why reinvent the wheel?
A steak house meal --
A tossed green salad with vinaigrette
served family style
Steak -- a KC Strip from our local meat market, The Butcher Block
and a "naked" baked potato
Toppings were on the table so everyone could top as they wish!
A pound of a potato!
And since it was The Fourth of July weekend . . .
We served our most patriotic dessert --
What's more American?
(well, perhaps Apple Pie)
Instead of lattice, we make stars and stripes!
Served with vanilla ice cream!
It was quite a day for entertaining
And we enjoyed each and every minute!
