Lunch at Michealette's

For years Michealette, one of my best friends, was our nearest neighbor here in Marble Mountain.  Two years ago she sold her cottage and moved into town–Port Hastings–about 30 miles away, but we see her often when we are here in Cape Breton.  This past Sunday, Dan and I had  lunch at her place.  Frances and Norman, her daughter and son-in-law, were there too.  Always good food and stimulating conversation at Michealette’s.

Flowers from Michealette's garden or that of  her next door neighbor are beautifully arranged throughout the house.

A cool refreshing cranberry drink garnished with lemons was served from this lovely wine decanter.  I like the unusual shape of this decanter, a gift to Michealette from Kit and Maggie.

The first course of creamy seafood chowder was ladled from this pretty tureen.

Finger sandwiches of turkey salad, deviled eggs and homemade bread rounded out the menu.

 Dessert?  Of course.  A raspberry, apple, rhubarb cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream provided the pièce de ré·sis·tance  for this delicious lunch.
