Hello, my dear sewing friends. Happy (or HOPpy Easter) :-)
I've spent most of today setting my Easter dinner table. We're having family over this evening.
On the mostly glutton-free menu...
Butternut & Squash Ravioli (handmade pasta)
Spring Salad with Fresh Garden Strawberries & Poppy Seed Dressing
entree & sides
Leg of Lamb with Homemade Mint Sauce
Green Beans with Almonds
Fresh Baked Breads (okay, fine, they were bought at the store)
Flour-less Chocolate Cake with Cappuccino Mousse
2008 Layer Cake Shiraz
2007 Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon
Obviously, we love making a big production out of entertaining company. Surprising and delighting others brings us a lot of joy. Plus, we have fun as a couple planning and scheming perfect menus, tablescapes, and music play lists.
I'm going to take our doggies for a quick walk while Olivia finishes up her nap. Then, back home to finalize our music and lighting and dress Olivia and I in our Easter best. :-)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend full of family and friends.
