It hasn't exactly been a week of table setting at my house. We are in the midst of a massive ice storm and my husband has been working 18 hour days for the power company. My son has been staying here babysitting his mom...but, when you are 28 and used to eating your own cooking...mom's cooking barely makes it to the plate before it is gone. We certainly aren't setting a pretty table for him! I have had a few things I wanted to share and this seemed like a good day to do so!
I found these sweet measuring cups on sale at T.J.Maxx after Christmas for $2.50. They have been sitting on my kitchen counter and I'm not sure where to put them, but they just had to come home with me.
My paternal grandfather, who was born in 1895, worked for many years as a baker at the Sally Ann Bread Bakery in Mattoon, IL. It was a commercial bakery. You couldn't buy bread there, but the smell was heavenly. I can remember being a little girl and taking a tour of the bakery with my brownie troop. I was so proud that my "grampy" took us on the tour. Many Sunday mornings after church we would stop at the bakery and he would give us warm bread. The apron was his. I love it! I also have his baker's hat packed away. I think they are such treasures. The rolling pin was my maternal grandmother's. It is the one I use all the time. I have a newer one, but you know, I really think grandma's rolling pin makes the food taste better!
Think how many pie crusts have touched this rolling pin!
My ruffled Crate and Barrel plate has some freshly baked scones ready for you. It is still my favorite scone recipe. You can find it here.
I had to share a picture of the ice on my patio door through the blinds. It almost looks like a lace tablecloth. How can something so beautiful be so dangerous?
