My kids are on spring break...love you kids, but today my table is just for two...like that will be happening! I remember those long ago days when there WERE just two of us at the table. The memories are so sweet. Yet, I know it won't be long before we WILL again just have a table for two -- and then I won't like it. It will be just TOO quiet!!!
I do like sitting around the table with everyone there and just gabbing and laughing. This St. Patrick's Day we had our usual corned beef dinner, but for various reasons only Tati (the food blogger) and I sat down to dinner together that night. Because everyone was gone, Tati said, "This is the worst St. Patrick's Day ever!" I had to agree!
My 15 years old son, found these "caliente" plates at the Dollar Store when we were out of town. Sadly, there were only two of them, but they were only fifty cents a piece! I love them and built this simple table for two around them. Imagine having a spicy latin dish with a citrusy tart for dessert.
