Call on Cynthia - Week 3

Dear Cynthia,

Family is coming for dinner and I'm all out of ideas for feeding this hungry crowd. I've seen those new fangled frozen TV dinners at the supermarket.
Would this satisfy my ravenous relatives?

June Cleaver

Timely query, darling June! A stroll down the frozen food aisle of the market is certainly becoming quite a culinary adventure these days. Why toil away in the kitchen when creative chefs in food factories all across America now provide everything from tasty appetizers to decadent desserts?

I firmly believe that all food is delicious if it is served by a smiling hostess and presented in an elegant setting.

Drape your dining table with this beautiful cloth from TheSweetBasil:

Artfully arrange your main course on these delightful dinner plates from littlecleoathome:

Keep the wine and conversation flowing throughout dinner with these gorgeous goblets from YaYasAttic:
VintageDiamond Optic Wine Glasses

Satisfy everyone's sweet tooth with a lovely dessert served in these sparkling bowls from TreasuresFromTexas:

Follow these simple steps and your guests will be begging for your "recipes". No need to panic! Simply smile demurely and distract them with another glass of wine.

Remember: when faced with a vintage dilemma, don't fret! Simply chill the champagne and CALL ON CYNTHIA!
