An Almost-Christmas Morning Breakfast


People always ask me if we really eat at the tables I do.

Of course, we do! At least most of them. I especially enjoy it during Christmas when the whole room glows with white lights.


I am a very early riser ( 4 a.m. today, usually 5:00 a.m.). My husband is more normal and likes to sleep until about 7:30 or 8:00 a.m.. That works great because I like a good two hours alone when I get up.

This morning I prepared the dining room for a nice big Sunday breakfast of eggs and hominy.

I quickly found some pink dishes to match the tree
and did a fast set up. Even though there was just the two of us, I took an extra few minutes to use cloth napkins and tie a pink Christmas ball around them.


I do love hominy fried in a little butter with salt and pepper. . . not the grits, but the whole kernels of hominy. I have not had it in a few years. Yesterday my Mom mentioned that she made some for my Dad and I suddenly had to have some, too.

I would have taken a pic, but my camera battery is charging. If you have never had it, check it out. It's a nice replacement for hash browns for breakfast!

Wow, thanks for sharing your 'tablescaping' I have never heard of that before. I'm a keen scrapbooker, and I am definitely going to have a play with tablescaping using my scrapping knowledge!
