I think my husband got out the mayo, too, and made himself a tomato sandwich (looks like he got out the wine, too!). But we all ate various combinations. I experimented with cheese and apple butter, and it was wonderful! Until now, I had used apple butter like a spread on toast, or dolloped on cottage cheese as you find on the food buffets around here. But I now highly recommend that you make some cheese toast and spread some apple butter on top - it's been my breakfast for a few mornings running.
This was the Sunday dinner where I had made a pie, a French fruit tart with blueberries and blackberries. It did not photograph well, nor was it popular with the kids for various reasons. Humph.
I like the look of the marinated eggs. Beet pickled eggs aren't really a 'thing' in the UK and my husband isn't keen on beetroot so it's not something I think of doing. I have just tried making mustard and turmeric pickled quail eggs though, which I have great hopes for!
I love red beet eggs! It's one of my favorite "treats", but I don't make them very often. Thanks for the reminder!
Hazel, I love mustard eggs! I have a recipe somewhere on here. . .
Hmm. Well, if the kids don't like the pie, all the more for mom and dad :)
Your table looks lovely. Good and beautiful food, serene settings. It's an art, and you have the touch.
Sounds like a meal from my childhood! Red beet eggs are one of my favorites. I can’t find them (or apple butter) in stores around here, but I have pickled some beets with plans to make red beet eggs.
I love pickled beets and eggs! These Sunday lunches ae wonderful. We had a clean out the fridge Sunday lunch but it was so good because there was fried chicken. :)
I need to do Sunday dinners like this!
I am very intrigued with your apple butter/cheese recipe. Please give more details. . . did you melt the cheese first, what kind of cheese did you try, etc? We LOVE apple butter and I make it every fall. Love the smell of apples cooking! Thanks for sharing, Margo!
Anissa, the first time I discovered it was this photo: bread, a slice of Swiss, and apple butter. But then, the next few days, I would put cheese on bread and toast it together in my toaster oven. I used Swiss or sharp cheddar. Then, when the cheese was melty and even browned, I would just spread apple butter on top when it came out. SO GOOD.

I love this kind of meal, we typically call it a nosh, or if there are lots of options on the table, a proper nosh. It's all delicious and nutritious and everyone gets to please themselves. Happy supper!
