with 3 comes a party.


when i made apple rosettes in october a friend asked if i could show her how to make them, to which i responded 'of course!' a chance to nibble on these pretties again? youbetcha. so lasterweek while my darling was in memphis looking for Elvis at the corporate offices, i planned a little get together .. vintage camper chicks.

another friend wanted to join in and with three comes a party so i made a little dinner to nosh on before the apple rosette tutorial happened and the subsequent devouring of baked goods to hide the evidence. ahem.


with table set simply i concentrated on groceries.

quiche is quick and i usually have guyere cheese
 on hand so it was a win win for the evening.

quiche .. simply
roasted red pepper & tomato soup*
mixed greens & tomato with asiago
& homemade croutons

*soup::i used trader joe's soup in a carton and dolled it up good. put a couple tablespoons olive oil in a soup pan. mince a large garlic clove and throw it in along with a few long turns of cracked pepper, about a teaspoon each of oregano and dried parsley. when the garlic begins to turn color shake the soup carton and add the contents, bringing it to a simmer. before serving add a couple tablespoons of heavy cream, give it a folding stir, then serve.


simple fare for simple gals .. 















plated and consumed..

 and then, dessert. 
apple rosettes

a fine time was had and i'll be planning 
another get together after the new year, 
Lord willing and the creek don't rise.

  5. Nothing simple about delicious food! And if you show up at Becky's you'd better plan to visit with me for a year or two or three!
