I went the whole hog so it took a while- breakfast in Holland or Germany is not just sweet things like jam, honey, marmalade and rolls, but also ham, different kind of cheeses and different kind of bread- and then of course coffee and tea.
I sent the Modern Country Gentleman- being English- out of the kitchen- as he was cramping my style.....he recoiled in horror when he saw what I was going to put on the table " Cheese???!! CHEESE ???!!!"" Cheese for breakfast ???? ".At which point he got thrown out -understandably." There is only one captain on a ship " as they say in Holland and this captain eats cheese for breakfast if she wants to.
My mum is an terrific embroiderer and she had sent me a lovely table cloth with napkins for my birthday last year.
So all well and lovely.Then I broke a plate as I am a bit of a klutz, and then I poured tea all over the table cloth- actually- just a dribble..no-one noticed- but it's tea so it will never get out!.
Do you use your " best" and " prettiest" table cloth - and who cares if you pour accidentally a bucket of red wine over it ?
Have a fabulous weekend whatever you do.
P.S. the dinnerservice is Audun Ferme from Villeroy and Boche- not great but nice enough. Not sure if I would go for yellow again..
