Simple Winter Dinner

I love living in the South. The balmy weather makes for very pleasant days almost year round. But about this time of year, someone always leaves the door open from the frigid North and we get bombarded with pretty cold weather.

So on days like today, I love to make a pot of Chili to serve up hot and filling. Add a little salad on the side and we have a great meal to ward off the cold weather.


Dessert?
I love these beautiful dishes that I found at Goodwill a couple of years ago. I nearly left them because they only had Soup bowls and salad plates. I'm so glad I decided to bring them home.

Soup and Salad dishes - Mornay by Mikasa (Goodwill)
White Chargers - Westbury Court by PTS International (Home Goods)
Soup Tureen - Nortake (Antique shop)
White plates with silver rim - Royalton China

Snow White

As the Bomb Cyclone bombarded almost the entire east coast, Florida braced as we were threatened to experience snow. Snow did fall on the upper peninsula, but aside from freezing temps, the rest of the state was spared any of the white stuff.

Instead, I thought I would featured a snow white table.


I hope everyone who reads this blog was spared from the January 2018 blizzard devastation.
Looking for Spring :-)

Tea for Two



"I am the happiest creature in the world. Perhaps other people have said so before, but not one with such justice. I am happier even than Jane; she only smiles, I laugh."

Elizabeth Bennet
"Pride and Prejudice"




With the brisk mornings, it's always best taking tea to warm body and soul.

Baby it's cold outside

It's cold! Yes folks, here in the sunshine state of Florida it is COLD!! We are experiencing a cold blast which shakes this Florida girl to the bones. We might not have snow, but we are expecting temps in the low 30's this week.

SO... let's take a moment and reflect on something warm ...



I hope your week is warming up.
