I have been wearing my apron again and acting as a Hostess.
V neck black jersey knit top
regulation black and white striped apron
I cannot cook without wearing an apron as I am a messy cook.
I have ruined many tops in the past before reconciling the fact that I need to have protection from splatters!
a rather blurry image of the table set for our dinner party

lemon drop martini's for the women
tray of nibbles

Our guests were consulted regarding food preferences and allergies
the meal was lactose and gluten free.
Our friends came bearing gifts!
single malt scotch for Mr. HB
Prosecco for dinner
and this lovely
chartreuse green baker
to heat up the black olives
if you have never warmed olives
run don't walk
pop some in the oven
you are in for a delicious surprise!
Hope that your weekend has offered up some memorable moments.
The weekend is not quite done...
The Golden Globes are on TV
as well as Downton Abbey
so we'll be glued to the tube tonight.
There's a dusting of snow on the ground
I plan to get outside and enjoy some frosty loveliness
before donning my apron to make a roast beef Sunday Supper...
but first I must get out of my robe and get showered and greet the day.
I spent most of the morning lazing about in bed reading the latest Town and Country
(and putting together this post!)
