We all took Chris out to Brunch today, and had TOO good a time together---I think everybody's gone off for a nap.
We've had quite a social weekend already---yesterday we had a Birthday Breakfast for our dear neighbor Honey, whose favorite thing is STRAWBERRIES. We had a lovely bowl, shining in the eight-o'clock sun on the patio.
There was fresh pineapple---the dips for the strawberries were two nice new Philadelphia cream cheese concoctions which come in tiny brown tubs like ice cream: Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate, which tastes exactly like Eli's Cheesecake.
Honey's favorite raspberry-filled tiny donuts:
Plain old glazed holes:
And some sharp-tangy Paminna Cheese, a nice counterpoint to all the sweets:
The big coffeepot just fit beneath the nice new Tea Cozy, and there's powdered sugar in the big berry.
Just before we lit the candle and sat down. We've been "doing" her birthday like this for probably ten years now---sometimes just the two of us, sometimes with the whole family---today there were five. Don't the old fifties Melmacs make a nice Spring table? Caro did all the arranging and bringing home---I just set the table.
The FORGOTTEN THING: A spray of Queen Anne's Lace from the yard, which was supposed to go into a pretty Mason jar for a centerpiece.
I hope you're all having/had a wonderful Fathers' Day with your loved ones, and if your Dad's no longer with you, I pray you sweet memories.
