I have been so blessed this hectic and amazing week with the help and support of family and friends. My sister, brother-in-law, and his friend traveled 700 miles from Indiana to help me clean, sort, shop and serve. My kids set up tech, sorted sheets and towels and vacuumed and scrubbed until all of us were ready to fall over. It was a very frantic pace.
You must understand that the movers were at my house Tuesday, we cleaned and minimally unpacked at the Inn on Wednesday, then our firsts guests arrived Thursday! The best people I never knew walked through my door and I already consider them friends. I look forward to talking with them again and welcoming them into my home for a relaxing and renewing time away.
We ended the weekend with Sunday breakfast, beginning with brandied fruit with buttered almonds, served in depression glass which my friend Karen and I hunted down over the summer. The main dish was a delicious spinach quiche and a sinful bacon cheddar quiche with spring greens and grilled ham. (I figured the greens negated any calories in the other items – sounds right.) To finish we had a warm homemade apple cake with a topping of freshly sliced apples sautéed in butter and brown sugar, snuggled against a scoop of Hagen Das ice cream.
Excited to see who stays with me next.
