Christmas Luncheon

Friday, I had the first celebration of Christmas--lunch with my dearest friends, Jane and Diana.  This year, Jane was the hostess.  Instead of having to drive twenty miles, I walked!  No, I don't have a new fitness program.  Jane now lives only one house away!!  After more than twenty-five years of friendship, we are neighbors.


For having only been in residence a few weeks, Jane and Jim have created a beautiful and comfortable place to be.  


A bouquet befitting the season set the scene for our retro luncheon!!


A basket of cubed French bread
and


a pot of cheese fondue.
(I was really impressed that Jane even found the fondue pot having so recently moved.)



The fondue forks?
Let's just say these are brand new!!


Dessert included delicious chocolates from
Little Chocolates on Lincolnway in Valparaiso.
and


Fresh fruit and melon in champagne!

Thank you, Jane, for starting the Christmas month festivities off in such a delightful and delicious way!!  I walked back home burning off at least ten two calories!!
