When I was planning a black and tan table setting “just because” for our next planned dinner and I didn’t have a tablecloth for it, I went to the fabric store and picked up material to make a tablecloth, 6 napkins and an exotic organza material to make the table top enhancer for the next night.
I told our friends that it was going to be very simple as my Dad has just passed away and although I wasn’t that much into a gourmet dinner, I needed the company.
The menu for that evening was:
- Rolled ham with cream cheese and pickled asparagus
- Hot Canapes a la Costco
- Cold Strawberry Soup (homemade)
- Lasagne (homemade)
- Rum Cake (from scratch)
As I said, it was extremely simple but the friendship was what I wanted. Did it help? Yes.
