g'morning & Easter dinner.





10 of us sat cozily in our kitchen, around our dinner table plus an extra table. mismatched chairs, a length off fabric as the tablecloth, the good silver, vintage cream*ware dishes and equally vintage water glasses. for sure we'd love a big dining room, but this works. and yesterday for Easter dinner? worked just fine, 
like every gathering of friends and family. 

i didn't take many pictures. once things got rolling i barely thought of it - but i did take a few you might like to see. 
of food. and flowers. buffet style.



angel'd eggs. cuz i don't like the term devil'd eggs. 
yolks mixed with mayo, dijon, vinegar, italian parsley, smoked paprika, pepper, and a parsley leaf on top. yUm.


simple settings. 


the planked salmon was delish.


when all but one guest took their leave, the 3 remaining (the hubs, the guest, the me) made ourselves comfy on the living room couch and chair. conversation flowed while Vivaldi played on the stereo. i fell asleep. learned this morning that i fell asleep hard :: 
mouth open & most likely drooling. cuz i'm classy like that.

busy day today .. readying for a trip south.
just me. for important things. super important. then bringing my mom home with me for a few days. looking forward . . .

  3. Your Resurrection Day dinner sounds delicious! I had to smile at your "angel'd eggs." One year, our grandson insisted that they be called "Jesus eggs." :)

    I love your clusters of daffodils in Mason jars!

    Do share your plank chipotle salmon recipe! We are trying to eat more fish and I would love a new taste on salmon. :)

  7. LOVE your table setting! The menu sounds perfect but the visit with dear folks even better. I helped with worship at the little country church - a treat, for sure, for me. Then home to dinner from the crockpot and salad and dessert prepared the day before. Things need to be simple when my dear mother comes to partake - simple, not spicy and easy to chew! A sweet time for her and for us.
