A little known fact about me

I was watching the news tonight and saw a story about people lined up in Memphis to remember that Elvis Presley died 30 years ago today. It suddenly stuck me that most of my generation can tell you where they were when Elvis died.  However, our parents tell stories about where they were when JFK died (I was three years old).

Dinner Out on the Town with Friends

Tina and Jack Mundy
We had dinner tonight with our friends Tina and Jack Mundy and their daughter Madison at "Doe's Eat Place," a wonderful, little steak joint located in downtown Paducah. Tina and I shared a 10-ounce filet, perfectly cooked at "medium-rare plus." My husband Bill and Jack each ordered juicy ribeye steaks, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Doe's also has delicious, old-fashioned, hand-cut french fries--they're so tasty I could make a meal out of them! 

After dinner, we ran into Mary Thorsby and her husband. Mary has an exciting new website Ilistpaducah where she lists all the fun activities going on in and around Paducah. Sign up and you'll receive a weekly e-blast with updates! And don't forget to read Mary's clever blog.

1412919-966422-thumbnail.jpgI recently wrote an article called "Summertime Entertaining" that was published in July-August 2007 issue of Posh, a local Paducah, KY magazine.  The article featured my 4th of July tablescape shown below as well as a festive Cuban-inspired tablescape.

It's my third published article about entertaining with friends.  Look for the next one to appear in the Sept.-Oct. issue of Posh.

Posh is published byThe Paducah Sun, a local newspaper owned by Paxton Media Group.


4th of July Tablescape


Our 4th of July celebration included a dinner for four on our screened-in sun porch (no bugs!).  I set the table with patriotic colors and the centerpiece was a fabulous angel dressed with red, white and blue.




Welcome to my blog about entertaining with friends in Paducah, KY.  I love to entertain and often have friends over for dinner parties.  I always decorate my dinner table, sometimes using a theme.  I collect dishes and table linens and enjoy creating new and unusual tablescapes.  It's my hobby and obsession.
