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.

Lunch Bunch Luncheon

We meet every month
Mostly at Linderhof
But occasionally we do have our 
"road trips"

May was at Linderhof . . . 

The dining room table all set for luncheon

Quaker Lace Tablecloth, Aynsley Pembroke, Jim's grandmother's cutlery
our French water glasses

Pink peonies from the garden

Peonies are beautiful but their bloom is so brief
Often cut short because of rains
And this year was no exception

The menu:

Mandarin Salad with Sugared Pecans

Chicken Tetrazzini

Served with biscuit bites


Cherry Berries On A Cloud

Served with coffee 

I'm channeling Betty Crocker recently --

Especially this wonderful cookbook
Full of good simple, easy to prepare dishes
The cookbook that all of the luncheon recipes came from
(with the exception of the biscuit bites)

Why am I channeling Betty?
Because Mother's Day was a Betty Crocker kind of day
I got to tour the Betty Crocker Kitchens as part of my Mother's Day present

The other part?

A Betty Crocker Kitchens Apron

And I know it's from Betty Crocker Kitchens
because it says so!!!

We had a great time at the May luncheon
where once again, Betty Crocker proves that her recipes are just
the best!

Martha, your table is beautiful, as always, your food looks fabulous, as always, lovely presentation. I really enjoyed how you tied in Betty Crocker, your past, Mirher's Day in the present. You write a great column. Thanks.
