Sunday dinner

bread


I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give.

~Thomas Jefferson


dinner1


The quality of food is in inverse proportion to a dining room's altitude, especially atop bank and hotel buildings (airplanes are an extreme example).

~Bryan Miller


table


One can say everything best over a meal.

~ George Eliot



salt and fire


At a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well. And talk well but not too wisely.

~W. Somerset Maugham

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.

~Voltaire

Beautiful. Was it a dinner party, or just the boys? I look forward to the days when we can have a beautiful table and lingering dinner with our children. We all eat together each night, but it doesn't look like that!

That looks exactly like what I cooked a few days ago. I had to do a double take at the first photo! Same pan, same veggies, same crusted roast!
I'll be there next Sunday......

Was this your house? The dining room must be lovely. Those tulips in that vase, beautiful.

It all looks so lovely; did I spy that famous bread up top?

Mmmmm. I can't decide if my favorite part is the candlelight or the wine or the pitcher vase of tulips. Or maybe the entire thing.
Kim said…
what's in the crust on the pork to make it so dark and delicious looking?
