Mags, that sounds delicious!! I'll be "stealing" that one from you!
Well, I've set my table. I set the table on Sundays with the new linens and dishes for the week. It sets the tone and makes it nice to not to have to worry about such things (who really does? ). This week is linen with crocheted lace over top. Haviland china with a purple tiny flower pattern rimmed in gold. It will make that pulled pork taste ever so good, won't it? :D
I do like to have what the boys call "a fancy table." I like linens and have collected many over the years. I keep just two Irish linen sets (antique) for best and use the rest all the time. I don't worry if they get stained. I just collect up more as time goes on (get them at estate sales and the like, these are not costly things). I like to think I'm not contributing to land fills with disposable items... but then, these do need to be laundered, so I'll guess the impact is nearly the same.
So with your delicious roast, do you like to do your table too, Wendy or anyone else who has a proper dinner on Sunday? (Or any day of the week)?
