Saturday night dinner...


Hello my dears.. 
Here it is Saturday evening again.. 

I wanted to thank all of you dear girls for signing up for my little giveaway.. Click HERE to sign up if you would like to.. 

Anyway, tonight I am making a special dinner for Terry and I.. 

I thought I would share the table setting with you.. 

You probably saw these dishes before when I did a guest posting for Like a Bubbling Brook.  They are a thrift store find.. 

We have a little bouquet that is our very first flowers to bloom.. 
They come early every year and my Mom calls them Heather.. 
I don't know what the correct name is.. smile.. 


They are pretty, though and so Spring like..
The colors are lovely, eh? 

We are having Ham slices baked in milk and brown sugar, mashed potatoes, sauteed green peas and onions, salad and such for dinner.

Just an old fashioned meal.. 

I remember the first meal that I made for Terry 42 years ago..
Potato Scallop, sausages, peas and chocolate cake.. 
I loved to cook even at the beginning of our marriage and thought he would love the meal. 

I did not know that the temperature of the oven was way off and the cake fell and the scallop was rather crisp.. grin..

He still liked it, though... 
And he fixed the stove.. smile..


And a bit of candle light.. 
The candle is one that I modge podged a toile napkin on.. 

That posting is on HERE for the how to..




Well, dear ladies... He will soon be in .. With this lovely weather it is hard to get him in before 7 o'clock at least.. 
He has so much to do outside this time of year.. 
Although, it is much sooner than usual.. 

Thank you all so much for your sweet visit and welcome to all the new followers.  I look forward to hearing from you all..

Tomorrow is the Lord's Day..smile.. 
Have a blessed one.. 
Hugs..

  10. Nice table decor. Love the dinner ware. I made a good meal tonight but no candlelight. I do sometimes but not alot since candlelight seems to bother Phil's eyes. I use votives so they aren't too high.
