More than once I’ve been asked if I set a table on those nights when it’s just the hubby and me eating at home. The answer is yes whether we have dinner at the bar or a table.
It’s very easy to plop down placemats and and napkins. Like so many of you I have lots to choose from, and what are they for if not to use?
From there, it’s all a matter of choosing dishes. I always give that some thought as I like the selection to be one that creates a look and ties the setting together.
No matter where we eat, there is some decor on the surface. Now, if you happen to recognize the pumpkins, they are the same as were used on recent Maine tables. I can’t bear to throw them away before leaving, so I pack them up and bring them to Houston where they will be used through the holidays. Whoever has to carry the bag they are in always wonders what makes it so heavy.
So, without it being a big deal all is ready for the evening meal
Like the setting, dinners for the two of us are simple. Most of the time I cook, but there are those evenings when the main dish comes from Costco or Trader Joe’s. Both have some very tasty prepared foods.
Now, if you are wondering if the hubby would just as soon eat off paper plates and use paper napkins, I don’t know the answer. You’d have to ask him!
