Last week my hubby was away on a business trip and returned home on Friday evening. I thought a nice supper of homemade chicken soup and fresh brown bread rolls from the local bakery would be welcome after a long day in planes and airports and a long week of eating out at restaurants. There's nothing like a home cooked meal is there?
I found the pretty red snowflake placemats at Winners after Christmas on sale. The dishes are all from Super Store and the candle holders from other stores. The tray is from Target. It's the one favourite thing I bought at Target which is closing all it's Canadian stores this year after just over a year in business.
The sky was just clearing off at the 'blue hour'. You didn't notice the Becel dish did you?
Haha. I forgot I'd put it on the table.
Inside Out Reflections.
I'm loving these tulips and wish they lasted longer.
I'm not the greatest cook that's for sure. In fact, I'm quite basic when it comes to preparing meals and I prefer to make simple food with common ingredients. Murray grew up on a farm and his mum cooked for hungry men - meat and potatoes guys - so Murray is fine with that and has never complained about the meals I've made for him these 37 plus years. He always compliments me on the meal when he's finished eating. Sweet man. :) And we always have dessert. Whether it's fresh fruit or a cookie (or two), I have to have dessert. That's something I grew up with and enjoy. I like my sweets!
Do you like dessert after a meal? Do you make fancy things often or does a cookie satisfy your sweet tooth?
On this cold mid-week night our son and his wife are joining us for beef stew and biscuits and, chocolate cake for dessert!
The molasses will be on the table for the biscuits too. They just go together.
Enjoy your day.
