Fiesta: Spanish word for party or celebration
In case you are wondering, I did get something for Christmas. Fiestaware!
Mr. Handsome (I LOVE this guy!) bought me twelve settings of Fiestaware! And let me tell you there is a fiesta going on here. Food looks so pretty on these dishes, even the food I make. I am a total clod in the kitchen. Sometimes my food is not so pretty. But I'm telling you it looks good on these dishes. Scrambled eggs look five star. Mac-n-cheese? A perfect ten. Burnt toast? Even it looks good.
These dishes are also inspiring me to try recipes that I've never tried before. Who'd a thunk it? Fiestaware might just transform me into Julia Childs. Ok, maybe more like Rachel Ray, but I'll take what I can get.
As for the salt and pepper shakers...aren't they cute, and charming, and delightful? I *HEART* them. My girls bought them for me for Christmas. They know how to tickle my fancy, for sure.
I'm going to go now. I have to fold some laundry. On my way to the dryer I will probably peek in the cupboard at my dishes. Just looking at them makes me happy. I thought that only fabric had that kind of magic, but I was wrong. Fiestaware...it's a party for the eyes!
