We hosted a small outdoor party for the husband’s brothers and their wives on Saturday night and I received some very yummy and pretty hostess gifts from two of my sisters-in-law.
I received a nice loaf of home baked banana bread tied up in a brightly colored tea towel from Bette. She cracked me up because she said that she had to go to the grocery store to buy aluminum loaf pans. She got the urge to bake right at the onset of her kitchen remodel. She had just packed up all of her dishes and utensils and didn’t know which box anything was in! I guess I can count myself lucky that she still had her oven connected!
As part of my breakfast this morning, I enjoyed a piece with a cup of coffee lightened up with a dash of caramel vanilla cream. It smelled heavenly and really complemented the delicious bread!
I know that I slathered a big serving of butter onto my bread, but not to fear~ it’s light butter. Can you tell? It’s not as light colored as the more highly caloric ‘real’ butter! More is okay as long as it’s not as as bad for me, right? ( I can rationalize with the best of them…)
Linda brought me this loaf of dilly bread from Landes Meat Market in Clayton, Ohio. She knows I’ve been a fan of this bread for ages and ages. I love it toasted and covered with butter!
The “package” is so festively wrapped for the fall season. Don’t you love the little bundle of flowers tucked under the jute ribbon string?
It was so cute that both girls used tea towels to wrap their gifts. I’m wondering if they both knew I needed new kitchen towels. Linda is always telling me that mine look a little raggedy! Thanks, Bette and Linda- I’m glad you practiced good guest etiquette. In addition to that, you’re keeping me happy with carbs!
