|A beautiful blue work baby quilt made by Nancy!|
|Oh and she has started the blocks on her hooked quilt rug that I showed earlier!!|
I had some white shirts in my closet that I wanted Mom to experiment with. I like tie dye, but it tends to really be too bold for me, so I asked her to try dyeing my shirts. Well, they came out beautiful. I showed them with the straw hat because I think they will just be so comfy and pretty with some white pants and sandals this summer.....
|Dyed Cotton Shirt!|
|and my favorite....a dyed linen shirt!|
|Wow, look at that happy face, you'd think he doesn't like getting all gussied up!|
I have been doing cycle one of the 17 day diet for about 2 weeks and have managed to drop 14 lbs, (thankfully the dress zipped right up) so I headed into this evening with a lot of apprehension about the 5 Course meal. Gosh darn it, I tried to be good, but my reasoning was that it would have been rude not to eat, right?? That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
|The menu and a little treat for later!|
|First Course ~ a pastry horn filled with greens with a sweet dressing, pate and brie! It was delicious!|
|Second Course ~ Mango sorbet served in an illuminated ice sculpture...|
|Hmmm, this is neat, how can I get it home??|
|Third Course ~ Beef Wellington with side of seasoned veggies...|
|Fourth Course ~ Sugared pastry cone filled with vanilla mousse with fresh fruit on the side...I forgot to snap a picture of it before I dug in...You can't even imagine how good this was. I did force myself to only eat half though!!|
|Fifth Course ~ Assortment of cheeses with crackers and Port Wine..|
|It seems silly to say this, but because I was really blowing the diet out of the water I brought home these for Mom, which is really saying a lot because this is my favorite chocolate....|
|The MP Table. The British officer at the end was our host, a very nice young officer!!|
It was a great night!!
Until next time......
