These sturdy green bowls are from the Iron Mountain Pottery in Laurel Bloomery, Tennessee. The pottery closed in 1992 but there is a blog that tells you all about it [here].
This green pattern is called Evergreen and hard to find today. We bought them on a trip to the Iron Mountains in 1985.
I use them often but never put them in the dishwasher. Here they were used for taco salad (no chips for me) when our daughter and son-in-law visited us Labor Day weekend.
Here's a picture of Christy and Bryan all spiffed up when they returned from a special luncheon celebrating their son Alex's engagement that weekend to his fiancé Melissa!
I found the tablecloth at Goodwill and naturally it called for sunflowers for the centerpiece.
The glasses are red Fenton. We have blue and green too, bought many decades ago. I've been told that true Fenton glasses stack where reproduction glasses don't. All I know is that they're pretty.
I used these Evergreen bowls again two weeks ago for a dinner of Oprah's Okra Shrimp Gumbo. (The shrimp was from Key West and delicious.)
I left off white rice and instead decided to indulge my craving for my favorite potato salad that is based on a recipe from the great Nathalie Dupree.
This small yellow pyrex bowl of potato salad was supposed to be healthy, wasn't it? Lots of chopped celery and onions, sliced olives and organic eggs from a nice young couple down the street. All marinated in olive oil and apple cider vinegar overnight. Of course, I did add in some organic mayo with no sugar from Trader Joe's.
I gained back 4 pounds of the 11 I had lost. I must admit that this one little bowl was not all the potato salad I ate over the next three days. It's taken me another week to lose those 4 pounds so now I still have to lose another 4 pounds in order to be able to buy that lampshade for a 15 lb. loss reward.
You weren't able to read that, were you? Good.
All posts must come to an end so that's it today, folks. Sometimes you just have to be drippy, I mean sneaky.
