Holiday Dinner

Good Morning Friends~I am back to feeling fit as a fiddle(never quite understood what that expression meant)and as busy as each day will allow. After last weeks dental work etc., I am now happy to be back to my normal energy. Of course, I'm taking lots of pro-biotics and also an immune booster, so hopefully I'll be good for the year. On Tuesday night, we had some friends over for dinner; I wanted to share our tablescape with you. O.k. almost-these photos were of my Christmas tablescape last year; I did my best to replicate it, but never got a chance to take any photos. I will say though that when pulling these photos I realized, much to my horror, I have no idea where my Christmas salad plates are. I knew I had something that I was missing, but honestly couldn't remember what. I have a salad bowl that matches these and used it too. I'm definitely going to be on a search for these dishes tomorrow when I have a whole day free.

I love this setting and also realized I never found my Christmas tree bread plates; I bet I have a box I never opened, sitting somewhere downstairs. We had a lovely dinner of bbq'd Salmon laid on top of Quinoa with Cranberries, Green Salad, a rustic Olive Bread and gluten free Chocolate Mouse Cake for dessert. 
I'll definitely be on a search.  Moving does that to you!  I knew I was missing some things from Harvest, but didn't spend any time looking for them.
Yesterday two granddaughters came over and we finished the sewing projects and they wrapped them.  Today I have a Dr. appt. and also two granddaughters coming to also wrap up our projects and wrap them.  Tomorrow is a wide open day.
I hope you are enjoying time with your loved ones and friends.  I am looking forward to a relaxed weekend, spent catching up with all of you.
Blessings to you!
