A beautiful table
I love crystal and silver together.
Wow, just Wow is all I can say. This was such a pretty arrangement, I could not stop looking at it. I think I may plant some Pyracantha somewhere in my yard.
This was my favorite dish of the day. Country Ham and Shrimp on Toast.
COUNTRY HAM AND SHRIMP ON TOAST
1/2 cup butter
12 oz. chopped, cooked, country ham (can use a ham steak)
3 cloves of finely chopped garlic
1 leek bulb, finely chopped
1/2 cup brandy
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1 1/2 pounds fresh, small shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
8 slices bread, trimmed, cut into points, toasted
Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Add the country ham. Saute quickly. Add garlic and leek.
Saute until the leek begins to wilt, remove from heat. Stir in the brandy. Return to heat. Stir in whipping cream, cayenne sage.
Cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add the shrimp. Simmer for 2 minutes or until the shrimp turn light pink. Stir in the parsley.
Serve on toast points.
Breakfast casserole served in individual baking dishes.
Stuffed Collard Rolls with Tomato Sauce. I thought I would not like this, but it was actually pretty tasty although the lady that made them said they were pretty labor intensive to prepare.
These were so pretty, I did not want to take one off the platter. Autumn Cranberry Pie.
Heavenly Cheese Grits...oh so soul satisfying!
As you can see, we had sort of a brunchie theme going on. It was a really fun and yummy day. I love seeing how other people set their tables and serve their food.
As always, if there is a dish you would like the recipe to, just leave me a comment. Talk soon!
