Today I called my daughter, 19, and asked her to meet me for lunch. She said "How about dinner?" "Ok. Come by at 5:30." I arrived home at 5:10. So at 5:15 this is what I put together. Even surprised myself at how fast it came together, about 10 minutes. She brought her good buddy, Jake, along with her. Wish I'd gotten a picture of him.
I wanted to make low-cal fajuitas, so I brought out my Mexican-inspired dishware.
Plates, placemats, tortilla dish, salad bowl and glassware purchased at Dillards.
Bowls to fill with corn & beans, mixed peppers and onions, and roasted chicken pieces. Purchasd at Kohls.
BING BONG! (Helen, that one is for you) I found two red salad bowls.
Shopping the house to see what I can find . . . . perfect.
Didn't know where to place the appetizer spreader knife, so I tucked it right into the napkin ring.
This vase of flowers was already on the bar. How perfect is that?
While rushing through Dierbergs I came upon the sample platter of their Apricot Feta Spread Torte. Irresistable. Smart marketing techinique. 5:00. Hungry. SOLD!
Best of all was visiting my busy daughter and her good friend Jake. The meal was fast and easy - Big salad and chicken faquitas. And too much apricot feta cheese torte.
