Jeff's family is visiting this weekend and we are planning a big family meal for Saturday night. Jeff has his heart set on lamb and I would like to find some spring appropriate veggies at the farmer's market tomorrow. Maybe fresh asparagus? I am also hoping that there might be some early rhubarb so that I can make this delicious cobbler from Seasons & Suppers. I made it last year around this time and it was so yummy I have been dreaming of it ever since.
It looks like it will be nice enough to sit outside at our picnic table and to have a fire going as we eat. I plan to set the table with the family china that got passed down to us for the first time, a tablecloth given to me by my Mom, two porcelain eggs I got in Barcelona and to complete the look - a simple vase of tulips. For me, a beautifully set table is the perfect primer for a delicious meal and in the spring I love a tablescape dominated with pastels and fresh flowers. Sort of like these pictured below.
How cute are those bunny place card holders! Have a great weekend everyone!
