July's lovely home style chicken dinner

In late July we had
a lovely older man from our local church over for dinner.
It was just a delight to hear his stories of this area
when he was a child; he was born just
blocks from where we live now.
It was a really special dinner!

Mashed Potatoes with milk, butter, salt, pepper
Mom's Applesauce
Dan-and-Mom-in-law's home grown beans
Green Salad from farmer's market
Small hot out of oven loaf of bread
cut up orange tomato
Chicken Gravy 
(little bit of chicken broth, the chicken fat from roasting pan with corn starch)
Small tomatoes in white ramekin from neighbor's garden

Oven Baked Potatoes for Mr. Husband who has been wanting them
Goat Cheese and Craisins for salad
Docs Original Hard Cider 
Lemonade and water

Delft Gravy Boat.

Delft Butter dish

Delft vase with three red roses,
blue and white plates, 
the normal extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the lettuce.

Decaf Earl Grey Tea, sugar and milk.
and Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert.
