An Alberta Clipper dropping about a foot of snow seemed a good reason to set a winter’s white table for a special lunch with friends. Early January can be a dreary time weather-wise and even a little depressing after the busy holidays. Friends time is a great mood booster and this menu is lovely.
Winter’s white centerpiece
I actually love the color white. It dominates my home and I especially love it when snow covers the ground and every window is extra bright filling each room. Some may feel white is boring but it is the perfect backdrop for splashes of any color you want to add.
Remember my re-purposed light globe centerpiece? Here it is with white flowers and pine branches adding a warm glow to the table on this blustery day. Even thought poinsettia are associated with Christmas, I think they echo the winter theme.
Below is the same centerpiece in autumn splendor. Click centerpiece from Re-purposed globes to go to the how-to.

Warm from-the-oven snowflake rolls help to tame single-digit temperatures. And, well, there are called snowflake rolls 😉
I have several favorite Quiche recipes. This is the one I turn to often because it is easy to put together with items I usually have on hand and because it is very good. The recipe was given to me from a friend way back in 1977 when we lived in Ohio.
Here are the recipes
