Flowers from our son and DIL.
We had our family feast yesterday
I was busy in the kitchen for two days and had fun preparing the dishes...
a hodgepodge of chairs
a mix of napkins and glasses
Our fairy lights are turned on for special events here in The Humble Bungalow.
Lots of dishes to go with the prime rib of beef.
Carrots served with a mix of grated ginger, melted butter and parsley.
Balsamic glazed roasted Brussel Sprouts
(Barefoot Contessa Cookbook ~ Foolproof)
Tortellini with cheese sauce for the grand children and vegetarians.
(recipe from Joy of Cooking)
Roast Prime rib of Beef
Pumpkin Pie for dessert courtesy of Mother who baked them from scratch...
(she is 89 so I think that is quite impressive)
The window in my laundry room overlooks the back patio and garden.
Ironing done while gazing out the windows of the french door.
I will post pictures of the glorious walk in the autumn sunshine very soon but for now I am going to put my feet up, brew a pot of Lapsang Souchong Tea and browse through the newest UK Country Living magazine.
Hope that your week is off to a great start!
Thank you for stopping by...
