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.
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 . . .
