Tablescape #7

A Barnyard Bash

Wow!! I love to Blog.

I'm joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Happier than a Pig in Mud for a Barnyard Bash.  My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.  And, Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum with a Cookie recipe 
I started baking in the early 70's.  And my granddaughters love them.

Since I only have Roosters and Chickens in my Barnyard.  

The hen house has invited us to have some Tea and Cookies.

Please join me at the Hen House

In a previous post, I shared my Kitchen Icon.  Mr. Rooster.  In any French kitchen the first thing you are likely to see is a brightly colored rooster.  Yes, My Rooster does have bright colors.

I would like to introduce you to Mr. Cream and Mrs. Sugar.  I think they are very cute.

This rooster looks like he owns the chicken coop.  How about his attitude?

Did you know roosters are on
tea pots?  And, of course 'Butterscotch Delight' cookies to delight you.

Each place setting has a White plate-my everyday, clear plate-church sale and a nice deep reddish purple plate-Bimore.  And a painted rooster on the top plate each representing a different breed of bird-gift from my dear sister.  

How about a little straw for the napkin rings?

Everyone is ready for Tea and Cookies. The tea cups are waiting- same everyday dinnerware.

My Sunflowers just started to bloom this week.  They are so tall and beautiful.

I was so excited to show their big yellow heads for Tablescape #7.

Please join me for some Butterscotch Delights.

Before zip lock bags, I would fill bread bags and freeze them.  I always had cookies on hand for a lunch box, tea party or after school snack.
Easy - Freeze beautifully
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups of brown sugar
2 1/2 cups of shortening
5 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla
 1/4 cup milk
mix dry ingredients
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
5 cups flour
5 cups Old Fashion Oatmeal
Bake at 350 degrees on parchment paper for 15 minutes 
yields 4 dozen - 3inch cookies
Wow factor!!!!!
Another wonderful party at My Cozy Corner is over.  I love having  parties.  Thank you so much for visiting.
