Sunday Cafe

Layered Lebanese Salad, with feta and olives
Pork chops with cabbage and bacon
Mashed potatoes
Black eyed peas with bacon and red wine vinegar
Rustic white and Whole wheat with honey bread tray
Homemade jam and butter
Pluot and raspberry crisp
Blueberry and Lemon cake
Rhubarb creme pie

Visually this is a beautiful salad. And it is delicious as well. I offered bowls of feta and sliced olive salad to top it off with, if you were so inclined.

Although the recipe suggested not tossing, I tossed it at the table, and I am glad I did. It was much easier to serve.

Pluots and raspberries
covered with streusel,
Baked up to a crisp.
The zest of two lemons goes into this cake, yum.

Blueberries are in the batter and sprinkled on top, then the struesel. After it is baked, you cover it with delicious lemon syrup.
Rustic white baguettes, from Firesign Farms. These shared the bread and butter tray with whole wheat bread from Noble Pig. And 3 kinds of homemade jam.

Rhubarb creme pie. This is very good. Creamy without any dairy.

This is the pork chops with cabbage and bacon. This is not a pretty dish, but it was tasty.
We also had meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

Then every dessert was turned into a birthday celebration. Happy Birthday Son!

As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by.
