Fall on the Rack

I have been working on Fall throughout my house lately and needed to bring some Fall into the kitchen. My breadrack is one of my favorite pieces to add seasonal pieces. So take a look:



The little birds work perfect with my Fall pieces. Their cream color with brown accents blend so well with my pumpkin pieces. 

I made the little Fall pumpkin and tag from cardstock paper. The idea came from Pinterest. I plan to make several more to use in a tablescape as soon as I get a little time.




I didn't buy a new wreath for the breadrack but instead used my original green wreath and simply added some fall pieces. Cheap and easy!!







Thanks for stopping by to see my Fall on the Rack - Judy.
Hope you are having fun decorating for Fall!

Fall Table Vignette

My dining room table needed a little Fall update. The vignette started with a silky bronze colored table runner, then a French tray was added to hold all the Fall elements.


I love the Fall candles, especially when they are glowing.



Love the curly stem on the speckled glass pumpkin.


Check out those antlers! My husband got those from one of his deer hunts.

Fall Mantel

I started decorating my mantel for Fall but quickly realized I wasn't quite ready to put away all of my aqua pieces that have been on the mantel all summer. So take a look and see how I used a little aqua with my Fall mantel decor.


I worked my favorite aqua bowl in with some Fall pieces. 

I reasoned that the white pumpkin could sit close to the aqua and be ok.

I added lots of stems of berries, fall flowers, and leaves.

My aqua candle sticks are still standing around too.

At the other end of the mantel is another of my favorite aqua pieces from my summer mantel with more fall added.


I love the stick pieces added at this end of the mantel.


 Maybe by October I'll be ready to put away my aqua pieces and replace them with a scare crow or something scary - Judy.

BLT-e Sandwich

Come on in and have a seat at my breakfast table. The rooster is calling and he's saying "Welcome Friends."


We're gathered around the table and hungry as can be!



My maiden grass is popped in a yellow container
to mimic a rooster's tail for the centerpiece.


The black rooster tablecloth is by April Cornell. 


This rooster says time for some food!


I can eat a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich just about any time of the day.


But when you add an egg to the sandwich, it becomes a great breakfast sandwich. 


So I'm serving a BLT-e sandwich for breakfast today plus extra home grown tomatoes and mayo on the side.

What more could you want than a good ole'  BLT-e?




Thanks for stopping in for breakfast and my BLT-e. 


Come back soon - Judy.

Homemade Pimento Spread on Hamburgers

My husband has been cooking again and we are sharing the recipe with you. He is making Old Fashion Southern Homemade Pimento Spread to go on grilled hamburgers. While he is mixing, stirring, and grilling, I have been creating my tablescape.

Take a look:



On The Menu
Garden Salad with Ranch Dressing 
Old Fashion Southern Homemade Pimento Spread 
Grilled hamburgers
Potato Salad 
Mixed Vegtables
Sliced Fresh Tomatoes


I'm going with red, white and blue today as we celebrate Labor Day. We are certainly laboring this weekend with the cooking, table setting, and some landscaping.
It looks like I have the table set for more than four people but those are a dessert plate combo between the dinner plates.
I'm using kitchen towels as table napkins, I love the blue and white stripe in them. You can see I have tucked a napkins in the geranium container for my centerpiece.


Let's go check on the burgers. Wow, too much fire under the burgers, better move over so he can get them under control. Big always likes to use charcoal when he grills.






While Big  is finishing the burgers, I sliced some of the tomatoes thin so they could go on the burgers, cut tomatoes for the salad, chopped some romaine lettuce and plated some of the potato salad. 


The burgers are done and the homemade pimento spread has been added to the grilled burgers. I've never eaten pimento spread on burgers but I'm going to give it a try since Big is  anxious for me to eat it.


Old Fashion Southern Homemade Pimento Spread

1 Tbs butter or margarine
1 Tbs plain flour
1 Tbs vinegar
1 tsp dry mustard
1 egg lightly beaten
4 oz. (1/2 package) cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 1/2 tablespoons pimentos, chopped
2 1/2 tablespoons roasted red peppers, chopped
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
4-8 oz. Velveeta cheese, shredded
Directions

In the bowl of an electric mixer (or by hand), beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to mix on medium speed until well combined.


Thanks for stopping by - Judy
