Simple in the country....

We are at Thursday already!  Is the week passing quickly for you? 

I need to post something that I couldn't locate for my previous post.

This is the salad from yesterday!

Now, for today's post.

I have mentioned earlier about a recent visit we made to the Country Couple.  We always enjoy our time there, and it is interesting to see what decor is displayed.

Simple in the country!

 The long wooden bread bowl holds rose petals.  It sits on a round of wood accompanied by carvings done by Country Man from crepe myrtle wood.

Food was involved!

Of course, food was involved.  Doesn't this look tasty?  It was a fresh, homemade cheesecake made better by that chocolate sauce on top!:-)  Chopped nuts helped, too.:-)  Country Girl made this for our dessert.  Of course, I don't have the recipe.:-( 

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Good morning! Yes, my week is passing very quickly, and I'm having trouble keeping up with it! HA!! Country Man is quite talented with his carvings, and Country Girl is a great cook, so I'm sure that cheesecake was delicious! Thanks for the picture of that salad, looks scrumptious! Have a thrilling Thursday, Sister! :-)

  2. That wooden bowl with the rose petals is cool. And cheesecake with chocolate on top? YES PLEASE!!

  3. Nellie, Some one else in your family can cook too.LOL. The salad and the cake looked so good. You could eat the salad alone to have room for cake. The long wooden bowl is nice, I like it sitting on a piece of wood. That makes me think of asking Ted , next time he chops wood to make me some chargers of wood. Blessings, xoxoSusie
    p.s. Nellie , I was sorry to hear your friend will have to have radiation.

  4. That cheesecake looks sinful. Love the simple country decor.
