When a dear, long-time friend was passing through town and told me she was coming for a short visit one recent day, I whipped together a quick lunch.
Using my favorite dishes in the Old Country Roses pattern and red glasses I got for Christmas were part of the fun.
Of course, little votive candle burned in a red glass holder, near a recently made centerpiece. (If interested, you can read about it here.)
To make curried chicken salad, I mixed chicken pieces with raisins, walnuts, apple chunks, chopped celery and onion and added mayonnaise mixed with curry powder.
Beds of lettuce shreds anchored the salads.
Luckily, I had some very special hibiscus tea in the tea drawer.
Its color is ruby red and it tastes like fresh flowers! Yummy.
I'll tell you about the speedy dessert-of-sorts in tomorrow's post!
Best of all at the lunch, of course, was seeing my beloved friend.
WHAT WOULD YOU MAKE FOR A LUNCH-ON-THE-QUICK?
