With nothing to lose, I asked Andrew if he would come up with a centerpiece for the table. He was very happy to be asked. He even inquired where he could find a fancy piece of cloth for the center of the table. :) Looking in the appropriate drawer he pulled out a piece of crewel work I had done as a child and never made into anything. :) He liked it because it reminded him of the picture on the front of his stamp album. :)
Andrew found a flower for the center and candles too.
He also asked if he could put out some placemats and chose the spring flowered napkins. Very sweet job!
For lunch we had pork loin slices cooked in the frying pan with plenty of onions on top, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes and roasted green beans.
(BTW -- I've been using leftover mashed sweet potatoes to make sweet potato biscuits. I'll have to post the recipe soon. They are fantastic)
