Replete with grandmother's old china, new, engraved glasses and embroidered napkins. Most interesting are the individual floral arrangements in glass bowls with an orange calla lily hanging over the lip of the bowl, and the unique place cards. Below is a close-up shot.
Hurry up and take the photo, we're dying to eat all this good food!!
A beautifully set table with lots of Fleur-de-Lis themed decor. Delicious pork chops, andouille gravy, mashed potatoes and fresh spinach with onions! Who could ask for better? Great company and a few rounds of "Hearts" after the dinner dishes were cleared away. And then... drum roll please... chocolate pie, still hot out of the oven! Oh, heavenly food and wonderful company!
It is very cold in Houston today. The cold rain has been falling all day, and there was an ice advisory this morning for all drivers. It is also Primary Election Day and I'm wondering how many people will brave the elements to go cast their vote. We have a lot of heated contests in Texas this round. I'll be watching election returns on TV tonight to see how it all turned out.
In the meantime, I used some chicken I cooked yesterday and lots of fresh vegetables with a homemade chicken gravy to make a wonderful Chicken Pot Pie. Everything from scratch. The crust is made with homemade cheese biscuits instead of the usual pie shell. It is sort of "cheating" really. But it tastes delicious. A perfect hot dish for a cold day. Isn't that tasty looking?
