What's not to love about Brown Transfer ware?
It's Earthy, yet soft, feminine, antique-ish. (yes I know that's not a word, I've had the flu, twice in two weeks, so I'm entitled to make up a word;)
Between coughing my lungs up, I managed to get to a few yard sales yesterday and picked up a sweet little bundle of Brown antique transfer ware.
The pattern can be seen in the largest plate in my table setting.
For Sunday dinner I cooked up something tasty. I miss Sunday Family Dinners. Realizing, we are (just the two of us) a family, I am carrying on the tradition. After all the first family was made up of only two people ;)
We will be inviting guests over from time to time though. We love company.
As you can see, our flowers, one week old today, still hangin' in there with a little tlc from Moi'
A vintage jello mold (i won here) holds course salt and lime to add flavor to dinner.
A Dollar store floor cloth (looking suspiciously like expensive antique grain sack) stands in as a place mat. (don't worry, it's never been on the floor;)
Here's a little secret about myself...I cannot take photos of table scapes. It's very hard!
I can't seem to get the right angle. If anyone has any tips and would like to share them with me, I'm open.
Oh you want to know the cost of my little dishes? Just $4 for a set of: 4 dinner plates, two bowls, one cup and matching saucer, and two cake plates. Not bad, considering it's hard to find, and very pricey in the shops.
I have one little tip for all of you, have you tried this product?
It's amaaaaazing! I made chicken fajitas tonight and used this seasoning, it smelled and tasted like restaurant sizzling skillets of deliciousness! I highly recommend it. I picked it up at World Market.
For my recipe: I simply baked chicken breast in the oven, seasoned them with salt, pepper, and cumin.
Then sliced thinly and added to my skillet of onions, and red and green bell peppers I sauteed in olive oil. Then in the last five minutes of cooking, add the seasoning, and cook for a few more minutes. It's that simple.
We served it with rice and beans, and garnished with avocado, cilantro, and lime.
Have a great week, tami
