TABLESCAPE THURSDAY........GOING GREEN.

Hi and Welcome to another edition of Susan's Tablescape Thursdays.....
Hosted by the decorator extraordinaire at
Stop by Susan's site to see links to all the other ladies participating this week in this Oh...So.. Much.. Fun... Activity....This week over at the Darling Bakers where I contribute very little compared to my other Darling Ladies....we had a St. Patrick's Day Party...
It was all about the food with some green thrown in...
My table was not very creative....just lots of green.
The food on the other hand was pretty darn good....So here's a simple table
and some really good eats!!

Another quilt was pulled out just for the occasion

Along with all my green pitchers....plates and platters...


The Romaine sure was green.....

another excuse to bring out the dinner china....
An old coffee cup....a tiny milk pitcher and my favorite a butter pat plate.
How cute is that?

Polka dot napkin......Nope....polka dot tissue paper...

The easiest tastiest bread ever....
The No-Knead bread recipe.......seeded Rye version...
Perfect for a big corned beef sandwich....

Hot sliced corned beef....cooked all night in the crock-pot...
A little water....a drizzle of EVOO...some pepper and a big onion...
Wake up in the morning to the best corned beef you ever tasted....

Hold the mustard....and add a big deli pickle.
It's Heaven on a plate....
You've gonna think your sitting at a table at the Stage Deli in NYC....

For dessert....how about some Pistachio Cream Puffs...
My signature dessert....

And this is Millie and Siggy.....
from the early 1940's
My father had to take a trip to Detroit.....or as he always called it...."Dee-Troit"
to drive back a new car for his boss at the time....
He actually brought these back for my mother.
I think it was the first and last gift he ever bought her on his own!!
The only two things I have to remember the real
Millie and Siggy.....
Make sure to stop back this weekend for another installment of
Weekends in Paris...
See you then!!!

Tablescape is so darling. Love the corned beef and bread and the mention of a NY deli. May the luck of the Irish be with you every day!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Looks like you had a great St. Paddy's day!
Your crock pot corned beef looks wonderful! I'll try making it that when we want to use it for ruben sandwiches. Those pistacchio cream puffs look yummy too --recipe please!

I enjoyed your festive green tablescape. Mille & Siggy are really cute.

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I'm impressed, not only with your tablescape, but that you make your own bread. You go girl!

Susie Q said...

Millie and Siggy are just too sweet. They hold sweet memories too which makes 'em EXTRA special!
That corned beef looks SO good. Bill and I have decided to sty home and cook next year on St.Paddy's Day. I hope our CB will turn out as yummy as yours!
And with that wonderful bread? Wow. To die for.

The dessert is so decadent and I am all about decadence. : )

I think your table looks just perfect. So there.

Love,
Sue

What a wonderful meal! Love your quilt and the green pitchers. That bread looks wonderful - sure it's easy? :D Jewel

Hey Sue
Oh yes, RHNYC was entertaining as always. I did catch where Simon didn't correct the person who introduced him as the owner of the hotel..I bet the true owner is pretty pissed! Oh well, they are all full of bull, so at least Simon and Alex are honest about their obsession with trying to be high society. I heard Betheney might be on Dancing with the Stars next season. Her jaws are amazing, aren't they? She and Maria Shriver look like they are related. But she is cute and has a knock out body...even though she had to buy it... LOL. Check out Scented Glossy Magazines . She has a great post on this weeks show.

What a cute tablescape! I love Milly and Siggy.

French Cupboard said...

The pastries look divine. You have now just gotten me off the couch in search for some dessert. Seriously...I am going.

I am new here! What a great blog :)

Lisa said...

Green green green!! I love Millie and Siggy, great little story with those.

Mimi Sue said...

I do love corned beef sandwiches. I love rubens too. Did you make your own bread? If so I need the recipe. We have a hard time finding rye bread in Utah. It's the misters favorite kind of bread. Mimi

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

You made that bread?! Oh. MY. And I make super easy cream puffs...and if your filling is what I think it may be (pistachio instant pudding mix??), what a FAB idea!! I use vanilla or chocolate...it never occurred to me to try another flavor.

Of course, I love the Millie and Siggy the most in this post.

p.s. The man of the house is a Polewop, too, LOL!!! 100% in fact. ;-)

nikkicrumpet said...

hold the mustard??????? What are you nuts...ya gotta have the mustard or it ain't a sandwhich! I love Millie and Siggy...they are adorable.

Cheryl said...

Lady Katherine said...

Love the quilt! The dishes I believe are like mine! The bread, so yummy! My hubby would love to know how to make this corn beef. Our Mother's did, but I never learned. He orders a ruben when he can.

Kathleen Grace said...

I am so loving green this year. You table looks beautiful, and that corned beef and little puffed partries look sooo good!
