Menu Monday- Oriental Influence


 Nothing like a good oriental influenced meal here in the heartland. Nothing like challenging the salt and pepper personalities either!


 We started with a black and red tablescape. The chargers are just regular silver chargers bought at Michaels and the outer rim was painted with chalkboard paint. This gives the opportunity to write your guests names or food dish, etc.









 My daughter is able to fold paper cranes...the perfect touch.



 Menu
Egg Rolls
with Thai Dipping Sauce
Sushi (well sort of)
Coleslaw
Sticky rice
Fresh fruit in season


 Now gather family.......
and have fun!
  The truth behind the photo.......
  husband just home from work, in bath robe, nice oriental touch.

I love that this was a family meal. The table is beautiful and I am craving egg rolls now! I love the chalk board charger too. Those are so fun.
