Dinner at the kitchen counter...

Sometimes I just feel like eating at the kitchen counter rather than at the table...It feels good to simplify things now and then!
I made a big pot of spaghetti and meatballs, more than enough for two, so there will be leftovers for lunch tomorrow!


I used paper placemats and napkin rings with an Italian theme...


...and opened a bottle of red...


...and pulled out our wine glasses from Truro Winery on Cape Cod...


...and MC Courtly Checked bowls and harlequin forks from Wegman's


...and all I have to do it toss the spaghetti and meatballs together and butter some bread with garlic butter for dinner!


And, chocolate frosted cupcakes for dessert!

  6. Ha! I rarely set the table or even the counter for us. It seems we basically eat on a tray out on the sunporch. It's so nice right now, that I should be setting the table out on the terrace every night. We eat so simply these days that dinner is often just a salad. I'd love to dine at your place settings. Dinner sounds delicious, and I'm crushing over your Wegman find. Does it say who makes that flatware?

  7. We eat at the counter almost every night and like you I try to make it a little special. Your dishes and flatware are such fun. I'm a sucker for patterned/colored flatware.

  12. Hi Patti, We eat in all kinds of places when it's just the two of us ... in the den at the tiny tall table, on the deck, the kitchen counter, the kitchen table, the long desk in the study in front of the fireplace, and even sometimes the dining room! That's the beauty of being just two! I love your CC collection and the cute cupcake holders too. Spaghetti and meatballs sounds like a good idea for us tonight! Linda
