It is winter in the Black Hills of SD and I love to entertain at the lodge, but I don't want to spend a lot nor do I want to have to store a lot of seasonal items.
So, I set my table with burlap I bought at the fabric store for a table cloth. I love the texture and it comes in so many colors. If you feel like it, sew a straight line across each end and make a couple of inches of fringe. When I am done with it, I just roll it back up and store on shelf in the closet.
Refreshing, easy and pretty, the perfect storm!
I use the Duncan Hines lemon cake mix and follow the pound cake recipe on the side of the box. Bake and when cool, spread 1/2 cup of raspberry jam between the layers. I like the jam with the seeds.
