Waiting for the Breakfast Pies!

After putting away the colorful dishes from my Valentine's Day and Blue Monday settings, I wanted some relief from all that color. What a better way to solve that problem, than to set an all white table.

This table is set for four people who are enjoying some fruit and bread (biscuits, of course - I am a southerner, after all!), while waiting on the main attraction, "Breakfast Pies" (recipe to follow).

Don't you love how the early morning light streams through the shutters?

The tablecloth is an old one of mine and the white placemats and napkins are purchases from Belk. I used a square silver napkin ring and an addition to the place white napkins - lace doilies, which look like tiny aprons.

The main dinnerware service is "Yardley" by Mikasa. The only exception is the "Sunflower White" plate by Clay Art, which holds the ramekin full of strawberries. The ramekin is from Pier I.

Both crystal patterns are from Schott Zwiesel. The water goblet is the “Delilah” pattern, but I do not know the pattern of the juice glass. I purchased 8 of these at Tuesday Morning a few years ago and there was not pattern name on them.

On the bread and butter plate, I used a butter knife from the stainless flatware that I chose as a bride. It is "Cantata" by Oneida. When the first purchases were made, it was bought by the piece only. It is a classic, since Oneida has never stopped making it, but now it can be bought in sets.

One way to make your guests feel special is to present them with an individual domed butter server. I bought these at one of the kitchen outlet stores.

The white flatware is from Wal-mart.

I love the way that all of the whites mix – everything from “white” white to almost cream. The urn that holds the flowers is a purchase that I made years ago and holds white mums, white daisy mums and white tulips. The tulips give me hope that spring is just around the corner!

I hope that you will enjoy this break from color, before winter is swept away and our senses are filled the color and fragrance of spring!
I, also, hope that you enjoy the Sausage and Egg Pie recipe. It is one of my favorites, but there is a disclaimer – these pies cannot be classified as “health food”!

Sausage and Egg Pie
Two 8 inch pie shells, unbaked
12 ounces of Mozzarella cheese, grated
One pound medium or hot sausage
3/4 cup of milk
Four large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Grate cheese and sprinkle over the bottom of the pie shells. Brown and drain sausage.
Sprinkle sausage over cheese. Mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over sausage. Bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool a few minutes, then cut into “pie” wedges and serve.
