they have a tale to tell;
while others may go hungry,
we're eating very well.
Easter was fabulous. We had a delicious brunch of asparagus tart, mango avocado salad, baked french toast, fresh fruit, honey ham, scrambled eggs, coffee cake, and of course- mimosas!
Yes, it was delish. But why so delish you ask? Because it was all eaten off these ridiculously adorable (or aDORIEable) plates!!! The sweet yellow color of baby chicks:) My heart still skips a beat every time I look at them!!!!
One Saturday about 4 months ago, the hubby and I were walking thru this Antique store in East Mesa, when I came across these beauts. 12 of them. I was immediately smitten. The hubby was not:( I have a thing for dishes. I do! An addiction, a sickness, whatever. I wanted those stinkin plates!! But I left without them. I think I might have driven home in total silence, looking out the window tearing up. Not really, but you get the jist:(
Fast forward to last Friday. I was headed to Trader Joe's for the last of my brunch items, when I found my car totally driving itself back to that antique store! Weird how that happens! I hadn't quit dreaming about those darn plates since. I parked and did a crazy power walk right past the sweet old lady at the counter, she was like "hello, welcome too......" . I had no time for greetings. Were they still there?? Were my baby chicks still there???
Yessss!! All 12!!! I walked straight up, cradled them in my arms and said "hello sweet babies! mommy's back and it's time to go home!!!"
And here's the deal. Pretty food DESERVES pretty plates. Food tastes better on pretty plates:) And if you have them, for heaven sakes- use them!! :)
