Our Weekend

Well, I was going to share my weekend with you yesterday, but after my day in the cupboard, I just couldn’t.

It was my date night this weekend and I took Mr. Michie to the movies! It was so much FUN! I can’t tell you the last time we went to a movie in the evening, we are usually afternoon movie goers.

We saw OZ. We both really enjoyed it, I thought they did a nice tie in of the elements, the costumes were beautiful and I only wish she was real because the little girl the “wizard” helps save in China Town, I could just take home with me, she was so cute!

We grabbed some breakfast before going grocery shopping on Saturday morning:

Then I spent the rest of Saturday preparing Sunday’s lunch. I made my Nana’s macaroni salad, my dad’s green bean salad and homemade yeast rolls.

On Sunday we baked a ham and I tried a new peach cobbler recipe. It was delicious! I made a few changes, by adding some cinnamon and a little bit if lemon zest to the peaches, like I would do if I was making a pie.

I have been reading a series of books at the moment that take place in the South (The Caster Chronicles) and after reading what Amma has been cooking, I was hankering after a little Southern Home-style dinner myself. There was even sweet tea to boot!

    Look at you in the kitchen!!!! We were thinking of going to see OZ over the weekend, but didn’t. We stayed at home and worked and worked on building plans….we’re a bit stuck, but more on that in an email to come.

    Your setting is precious. I love the …. I love it all!!!

    dots, peaches, the little scalloped small plate, the green glass.

    You’re a cutie-patootie you are!

    Thank you! My set is from France. It was very romantic, I saw it in a magazine and Mr. Michie liked it too and when we were in Paris he took me to the store and bought me 6 place settings.

    I couldn’t have been more happier, if I tried. I have a thing for china. I can’t help it, but I have a lot of it, here and there.

    The green glasses were an anniversary gift to each other, we bought a set of 6 and the polka dots belong to a piece of Emma Bridgewater pottery I have. They are my favorite things to use, they bake, cook and clean-up like a dream!
