Good Evening one and all..
Just a short post tonight.. Today was a lovely warm day here but the temps are supposed to be getting much cooler with some snow ..
As you may know I love Mondays.. A long week ahead full of potential.. smile..
We had company today.. My Mom and Step-Dad dropped by for lunch and we had a lovely visit.. My Mom looked sweet.. I should have taken her picture.. smile..
There is no one I would rather cook for than her.. She always loves everything and tells me I am the best cook she knows.. grin..
Today, I made a Chinese Casserole, Bread, and a Garden Salad with a Homemade Tomato Dressing which she loved.. She took the rest home along with the recipe.. smile.. And a Chocolate Oatmeal Cake for dessert..
Terry is still painting and I am still puttering away..
This is the Dining Room this evening..
Sorry about the quality of the pic but I could not get a good one because of the lighting, I guess..
I worked on a little table scape today..
Using some homemade type cloches..
I am not sure this is what I want..
More on that later..
Here is the recipe for the dressing in case you would like to try it..
