Table Top & Dinner Plans

  I have been spring cleaning, and clearancing out a whole bunch of stuff. (not on the website) Inside of Country Roads. Go see what deals you can find.  Its been so long since we have invited friends over for dinner. It might be because of all of the recent furniture changes, construction, and dust in the air. Finally the dust is starting to settle. I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. So I hosted a small get together and wanted to share some of my pictures of the table top with you.
First on the menu, was a romantic style dining room. This is my almost finished dining room...

Second on the menu was a glass of wine, strawberries and a great salad!
I made the Barefoot Contessa Lemon Cake, which is to die for! It came out so perfectly moist, and just enough lemon for my mouth to pucker, and still be sweet.

My first blooms from my rose garden are coming in, so I was able to cut some Eden roses, and Old English Roses, to bring to the table.  Antique Silver Flatware, and stacks of ironstone salad bowls make a perfect table setting.  Oh, and a glass of Kendall Chardonnay.
I forgot to mention my beautiful Linen Ruffle Napkins (charlie) available on our website in sets of 4s
Now the dinner salad that will be on my menu forever, just because it came out so delicious. I will give you the recipe for.

1 1/2 C Arugula & Baby Spinach
3 Strawberries Sliced
2 Tbs Fresh Crumbled Goat Cheese (silver is the brand i used)
1 small hand full of candied walnuts (already candied in the package)
3 Tbs Balsamic Vinagrette Dressing (any brand) I used Trader Joes brand
1 Tbs Chopped Leeks
3 Avacado Slices
1 Chicken breast (optional)

A fresh sourdough baguette sliced
We did not have chicken on our salad because Lasagna was the main course, and oops, we ate it up before I could take pictures. It came out delicious, maybe next time I will take pics!
Bon Appetit.
