Afternoon tea

April 26, 2014

IMG_1048We thought it would be nice to have a few folk over for afternoon tea over Easter. Just a few folk. Just a nibble or two and a drink. Cup of tea if they insist, but hopefully enjoy the garden that hubby has been working on and just catch up with a bit of relaxed chat for a couple of hours. So we asked a few friends round – not ones that knew each other – and settled on Sunday. IMG_1079The weather was glorious on Friday and Saturday and the Heavens opened on Sunday. Torrential. No hope whatsoever of getting a sniff of the garden air, so we reverted  to our new knocked-through back room.

IMG_1080I had persuaded my Mum to write down some of her recipes before she died so i made various basics out of her book –  scones, chocolate cakes, fruit loaf and then supplemented them with some parmesan biscuits and salmon on soda bread. Just to soak up the alcohol.

Which was champagne then Sipsmith’s Summer Cup – a kind of less sweet version of Pimms which slips down like water.IMG_1081





We started at 3 . We stood about and chatted, drank and nibbled. Eventually we sat down and ate the lasagne I’d prepared earlier (another recipe from Mum, but not written down, just learnt)  and we finished at midnight . Fantastic. That’s what I call a result.
