This week's theme being dress up, I pondered what to do. And then it hit me; dress up the table.
I love to cook. For my family. For guests. For everyone. I not only like to cook, but I like to have a pretty table. Not only for guests, but for my family, too. I'd say that most days I succeed in this area.
This was our table last Saturday night. No guests. No special occasion. Just US!
Tablecloth. Cloth napkins. We've been using them for years, and I very much dislike the paper variety.
Proper silverware placement. Pretty glasses. Bread plates. It doesn't take much to make the table look nice.
For years, 20 of them I've been married now, I'd take great care to set the table, and even greater care in preparing the food. But when I made soup, I had no choice but to sit the POT in the middle of the table. It was such a let down. No matter how good the soup tasted, the pot tormented me all through dinner.
Until last night. While Abigail and I were on an adventure this week, I spied a soup tureen for $11.99! I couldn't pass it up.
Soup never tasted so good as it did last night.
And I wasn't the only one who thought so!
