Wish I Had Taken Pictures of the Food!

The dinner party that my husband Dan and I gave Friday night worked out fabulously! We had discussed the menu a couple of weeks before and pretty much decided on it, then as the time grew closer we kept coming up with new ideas and didn't serve one dish that was in our original plan -- go figure!

As usual when we do these dinners, I cooked all day and Dan ducked the flying morsels of food as he made frequent sorties into the kitchen to clean up after me -- am I lucky, or what? I actually started the day before by making a New York cheesecake that chilled overnight; then Friday morning, I baked a loaf of challah as well as a loaf of sourdough bread and made the other dishes.

I purchased this coppery leaf-print sheer fabric at Nuttall's in Salt Lake City and told Rhonda that I was going to sew a table runner out of it for this dinner. As you can see, I totally lied about that -- the "table runner" is just the two yards of fabric flopped down in the middle of the table with the edges turned under so the selvage didn't show!

  1. mmm...challah bread- one of my favorite breads to bake. So much buttery goodness. So many people forget that you don't have to SEW to have a pretty centerpiece, and next year, you can use it someother way.
