I don’t know about you, but most of our nightly meals are at home and the table is anything but fancy. In fact, most nights we don’t even eat at a table but remain at the bar where we have just played gin rummy or backgammon. It’s a comfortable place to eat and close to the kitchen which means hubby doesn’t have to walk too far when he clears the dishes.
No matter how simple, I do pay some attention to how we receive the food, meaning that I want it to look good on the plate. I’ve been known to throw a whole meal down the disposal because it didn’t look appetizing. Now, is that carrying creativity too far?
OK, back to the bar where tonight’s dinner is a salad which has tuna in it, making it a good time to use the fish plates. They need a little color so the turquoise placemats and purple napkins will help out there
as will a gaily patterned bowl for the crackers and the adorable bird salt and pepper shakers. It’s impossible to resist buying such eye catching little things at Anthropologie.
Hmmm, it’s also a good time for the fish goblets. We just have to be careful not to fill them with too much wine because they are mighty big.
For dessert, there’s buttermilk pie, so come back tomorrow for the recipe.
