I had company for lunch yesterday
Not an Italian company but Italian food!
The table set in a more casual style:
Blue and white Spode Blue Italian plates,
rustic wicker chargers
A wicker tray used to corral the centerpieces
And blue linen napkins
(but in my silver napkin rings!)
I love the house looks with the table set and we're just waiting for the guests to arrive!
(My take on Olive Garden salad -- lettuces, red onion rings, cherry tomatoes, croutons, pepperocini and black olives with an oil and vinegar dressing)
Pasta Di Vince
(rigatoni with chicken chunks, mushrooms, onions and a wine and cream and cheese sauce - sprinkled with more Parmesan cheese before serving)
Arkansas Possum Pie
(Layers of cream cheese, chocolate and whipped cream in a nut crust)
We had a grand time.
But anytime you have good food and good friends, it has to be a grand time!
