A Quiet X'mas Eve Dinner

I have been sick so I did not have the energy to cook but look what we ended up having for dinner. Foodie Friday is brought to you by Michael. If you really want to see delicious foods and beautiful presentations, head on over to her blog at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/have
My friend told me not to cook and she would bring us over some dinner so I set the table, very simple, just for 2.
I took out my Johnson Brothers Friendly Village plates and just used my everyday flatware.
I went outside to cut up some hollies and placed them in a vase.

I couldn't believe how much Nit brought us, 4 different kinds of Thai dishes and rice, freshly cooked from her kitchen. Isn't she just the sweetest? Maybe I should get sick more often, lol.

As you can see from the background, I am getting ready for a dinner buffet party for Jan. 2nd, rescheduled from 12-23 because of the bug I caught from California.
I even lit a fire in the fireplace. DH and I had a very nice quiet evening. We went to church after dinner and then opened presents when we got back home and then watched "Lost" until we fell asleep on our recliners.
I hope you are still enjoying your Christmas get togethers with family ad friends. Have a Blessed one!
I am feeling so much better, must have been the Thai food which I do not know how to prepare.
Thanks Gollum, for hosting FF!

Merry Christmas, Christine! I'm so sorry you've been so sick! Poor thing! Hope you'll continue to feel much better. What a sweet friend to bring you over the lovely food. Even in your sick state, you've sat a beautiful table. Love the holly in the jar! Take care of yourself, Dear One!
Be a sweetie,

Christine, I'm so sorry you've been feeling under the weather and hope you are on the mend. There is something comforting about Johnson Bros china--more so when a best friend brings your food. Everything looks delicious! Hope you and your family have a wonderful 2010!
