My older sister Roberta hosted a tea for the "girls" yesterday. We all brought something - I made chocolate chip brownie cupcakes with peanut butter cream cheese frosting. :-)
Sis had the table all set for the four of us when we arrived.The girls.
I asked her where she got the utensil holders and she told me they were vintage toothbrush holders she'd picked up at thrift stores. :-)
Roberta made raspberry soup - it's spiced raspberries with some yogurt - yummy!
Sis made tea sandwiches, egg salad, tuna salad and ham and cheese. Shirley brought fresh fruit. Younger sister Denise made fresh scones and homemade clotted cream and lemon curd. :-)
Our hostess also made jello with pears.
And of course, tea!
A literal banquet.
Save room for dessert!
The peanut butter cream cheese frosting was easy - 1/4 cup each of butter, peanut butter and cream cheese, blended together, mix in 2 cups of powdered sugar and a few tablespoons of milk - whip together.
And look what I found when I returned home!!!!!
This is what I've been going for since we got our first chickens - the regular brown, dark brown of Cuckoo Maran and aqua of the Ameracauna! Aren't these wonderful?
I am swimming again after a break during the worst of the winter weather - so I will be heading off in a few hours for my one hour of lap-swimming. How is your week going? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
