Monday night, 6:15 pm, and wickedly procrastinating about putting together some dinner. Long weekend was a food and drink fest, always serving in the double digits. Second daughter turned twenty-four Sunday, and as usual we celebrated with a dinner at home.
Food is looking robust, night before we were doing cocktails and champagne, thank you Gabby and Danny.
Love the balloons.
Stuffed some chicken breasts with local herbed chèvre and basil leaves, stove top roasted tomatoes, peas, and quinoa.
Cake was homemade, four sticks of butter with the cream cheese frosting, butter is love. Found we were out of candles and couldn’t bear another grocery visit so simply stuck a red rose on top and surrounded the platter with tea lights.
We did pick up some new dishes, grey, and grey linen napkins. Dishes are french, and like the ones we’ve loved and used for years, simply a new color.
It’s always double Monday after a long holiday.
Happy Birthday Booie. xoxo
(couldn’t get the post up yesterday, way too exhausted).
Okay, Tuesday night, 7:24 pm, and waiting for the teens to get home to have pan sauteed scallops and sugar snap peas and they are now looking pretty sorry.
When you’re the one that makes the house hum you’ve just gotta go with it- coconut cake still sitting around yet those scallops can’t wait.
Every day dress and coconut cake with tea lights. xoxo
Must have been a scallop kind of night-made it down here in Florida too!
Yay! Scallops are sweet now and love cooking in season. xo
Love you and your attention to detail! Dinner sounds amazing!
Thank you beauty, need a lunch date again soon. xo
Lovely and clever. Will you please share the cake recipe?
Thank you, Bear! Cake is from Ina and Barefoot Contessa, I can always count on her. 🙂
