Dinner Is Served!

DSC04953Had a great afternoon yesterday getting dinner ready for our friends in the evening.  I chose to make French Onion Soup to start, Beef in Beer Casserole for main with mashed potatoes, broccoli, peas and carrots and to finish a pudding I created!!!!!!  A biscuit base with blackberries on the top covered with apples and then topped with puff pastry, made in ramekin dishes.

As you can see from the pictures above and below this is my table set for dinner.

DSC04955The cutlery I inherited from my Mother which was given to her as a wedding present.  The water glasses are my Grandmother’s and the wine glasses were a wedding present to us.

DSC04956Here are my Blackberry and Apple creations waiting to be baked.  I didn’t have time to take a picture when they came out of the oven but they loved them!  They were served with custard.

It was lovely to catch up and hopefully we will get to see them again before Christmas.

DSC04951 DSC04949 DSC04948Youngest decided on Friday evening that he was too tired to walk around Goose Fair so he decided we could drive past and see all the lights and then go and have something to eat, which is what we did.  I also think he missed his brother, who always comes with us, but he was on his way to visit Girlfriend in France!  We were also late leaving home so we would have been quite late getting to the Fair so it was a good compromise.  As you can see the pictures were taken as DH was driving past, so not very clear but you get the feel of it.

This morning I did the swimming run as DH is out at a swimming conference (!) so it was like getting up in the week for school!  Although that has given me more time to get cleared up and to sort out my quilting things, which have got in a bit of a mess!

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday.

Hugs, Susie
