8th Stop, Snow Trip, Oxford, NC part 5, Our Southern Living Dinner
Somehow Ben and Phillip arranged for BK and Jim to throw a dinner party to celebrate the closing of a house purchase by their friend Pam and Ed. BK and I cooked since I saw it as an opportunity to have some of our favs that we miss in Italy. The menu, baked ham, sautéed yellow squash, stewed tomatoes and okra, baby limas, sweet potatoes and Sister Shuberts rolls (http://www.ssrolls.com/). For dessert, Italian Cream Cake.
BK pulled out the china and silver for the dinner and we had fresh flowers on the table.
Counter clock wise from BK at the top, my Ben, Ben Floyd, Jim and Ed.
It really was very Southern Living. And since I sold all my whoop dee doo china and silver I’m not sure if we would be able to entertain at this level when we come back. But I’ll still be able to make the Italian Cream Cake even if we are eating it off paper plates. It was good. Sorry no pictures of it or the other food. But that ham was good too.
BK cleaning up afterwards. Notice her blue ‘cat tail’. It would swing gracefully as she washed dishes.
