Oh so pretty! I'll just watch you guys use it though, I'd be afraid of banging it up!

OK, I've probably had a bit too much caffeine today. I'm feeling ever so slightly buzzy.

Might be time to switch to wine...anyone around? Feel like joining me for a glass of wine out on the patio? I brought some bacon wrapped scallops and water chestnuts as appies. I can't eat them all by myself.

I'm there in a heartbeat. Sounds yummy. Supper won't be ready for at least another 1/2 hour. I'll be dashing back and forth between the patio and my kitchen.

Dinner is pulled pork here and it smells heavenly! I'd expected there to be 5 of us for dinner, I'm down to 2. And not sure when the #2 will arrive home! ARGH! I'll just sit here and sip my wine and be patient with all the good smells I guess.

What's for dinner in your world taxlady?

We're having pig too.

I'm roasting a pork loin, Danish style and experimenting with mashed root vegis. I might heat up some leftover rice, we're out of potatoes.

Have to confess, I'm not having wine. I'm having akvavit.

Akvavit works! Must be pig night. Pork loin sounds good.

Yup, that coffee set is gorgeous, but I like just about everything from Georg Jensen. He's Danish, you know.

yes, i know.:) his silver designs are exquisite. my favorite, the 'acorn' design, was created by johan though, in 1915. he has a painting i love too, titled 'boys at water's edge. i can get the poster for only $40....

your swedish cake turned out really delicious-looking, taxy. and i Know you were extra generous with the almonds, too--yum, they're so tasty toasted brown like that....
