What people used to do on the week end around here back in the fifties was to pack the car and go for a spin around the country side. We’d bring bulging picnic baskets, camping chairs and tables, blankets, cooking gear, you know, the lot. Then we’d find a nice quiet spot, preferably by water of some kind, a lake, a river or even a small stream. Then we’d empty the car and have our self a really nice time. Some of my fondest childhood memories are from just trips like these.

0081_bowl  

Let the modern cocktails and
drinks get a rest one evening
and serve a fresh, cold bowl
when the guests arrive.

Why not let the old fashioned bowls have a renaissance, and offer your guests a nice cool bowl, where the ice cubes tingles a lot more gay than in any cocktail and herbs and berries floats tempting in the fresh liquid.

A bowl like this can be served with such elegance that it is a joy to the eye. You can serve the bowls in any thing from crystal bowls to earthen ware jars. The first is more elegant but last are nice enough to look at and they keep the cool for a long time. Or may be you have a nice, old soup tureen.

The recipes are here
