or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Home for Lunch

I don’t feel like writing much today so I’m posting another photo.

Weekly Photo Challenge | Home for Lunch

Home For Lunch

This is what my Mom’s dinner table looked like for the holidays or any big family gathering.

To the right, at the back, is the kitchen where there was another table set up.

You can read more about all the mismatched chairs at: or not – Sundays With Mom.

Are you taking part in the Weekly Photo Challenge?

      PS I love family gatherings such as these…can’t wait until the grandchildren arrive 🙂 This photo is a reminder 🙂

    Wow! She must have prepared mountains of food to feed that mob!

    Thanks for the link up, Rose.

    • March 15, 2011 at 6:36 PM

      No problem Nancy, she did and most of the food was all prepared by her. She would allow us to bring a dessert or maybe an extra vegetable dish but she always made sure there was enough for everybody. 🙂

    Wow, I think that is the biggest setup I’ve seen for a family gathering! Must be fun but hectic to feed so many at the same time 🙂

    • March 15, 2011 at 6:38 PM

      Hi Indigo, my mom loved cooking for her family and continued to do so until the very end. 🙂

  6. March 15, 2011 at 6:41 PM

    Wow Impressive. That’s what it used to be like at home with the family at christmas, parents, grandparents, nephews nieces. Fun times. How many were you catering for?

    • March 15, 2011 at 6:47 PM

      Hi Timmer, I can’t remember exactly how many this day, except to say that it was Christmas and my brother came up from Florida with his family. Usually there were anywhere from the low to high 20’s for lunches. 🙂

    Hi Rose, I hope your aren’t coming down with an awful case of March Madness or Spring Fever. Thanks for the mention…BTW, I love chairs. I have my own set of mismatched favorites…

    • March 16, 2011 at 3:04 AM

      You’re welcome Jeanne, plenty of mismatched chairs but my Mom made sure she had enough matched dishes and wineglasses for everyone. 🙂

  8. March 15, 2011 at 8:28 PM

    Wow – that is some set-up for lunch there Rose! I love big family gatherings – gives me a nice warm glow inside.

    • March 16, 2011 at 3:09 AM

      Hi Barb, my Mom loved it when everyone was home for the holidays, especially with all her grandchildren. We also had highchairs at times for some of them. 🙂

    That’s one loooong table. Are you expecting the Walton’s family to drop in.

    • March 20, 2011 at 7:46 AM

      Hi Tony, you had my laughing on that one. Good thing I had already swallowed my coffee. 🙂

      No Waltons, just the family home for Christmas. But with 8 kids, spouses, grandchildren, it is a large family. 🙂

    Thanks for the nostalgic memories…I loved our family gatherings, much like this. And kiddie tables..and now, well it’s just me…

    And I’m okay with it. Most of the time, anyway.

    • March 20, 2011 at 8:59 PM

      Hi Jaxie, we had a kiddie table too! I know the feeling you’re talking about, but at least we have our memories. 🙂
