My sweetest daughter, STACY LEIGH, brought these beautiful
dish towels to me from a trip to DALLAS.
they are so PRETTY.....
and so perfectly FRENCHY.....
I decided to use them for awesome place mats.
Don't you think they look great ?
I love the look of the vintage golden flatware with it all.
A very sweet and good friend gave me these
adorable dessert plates.
I thought they looked really GREAT with the cream ware dishes I already had.
I felt a FRENCH TABLE coming on. :)
A French inspired table always must have some FRENCH HENS around...
and a rooster or two.
The little plates have different fruits on them
but I am using the two with grapes today.
AHHHH, the fun of PhotoScape...
A little sugar jar that matches the dessert plates..
I just put in a little bouquet of flowers.
...and a few more French plates are added to the mix..
Both little plates....

Time for a NEW CENTERPIECE...
the most awesome French donut you've ever put in your mouth.
I have tried Paula Deen's recipe, along with several others
and, by far, the MIX that comes from CAFE du MONDE
in NEW ORLEANS,
is the very best.
Just add water to the mix, roll, cut and fry.
They are so tender and light, I can't stand it.
Be sure to check at your local grocery store
for the mix.
Our market does carry it.
I am so lovin' this beautiful book
my sweet daughter gave to me.
It is full of the most mouth-watering photos
you've ever seen.
Always adding PLENTY of powdered sugar just makes beignets EVEN BETTER..
These are so fluffy with all that sugar, I could just DIVE right in the middle of it. !
A beignet is better when served with a strong, delicious coffee..
Lets have a beignet and a cup of coffee and.......
TALK ABOUT IT.
