Let's Have A Cuppa
- Cynsa Oct 10, 2012 01:03 AM
It's time for tea time treats, my dears. Please come to afternoon tea (virtual) here at four o'clock on Thursday Afternoon 11 October - when I will close this thread.
The kettle is on and the china teapot has been warmed with boiling water for just a minute or two. Tea is measured - one teaspoon per person and one for the pot.
SUGARED MINT LEAVES
- lightly brush dry leaves with beaten egg white and dip into granulated sugar. Place on rack to dry in a warmish place.
- thinly sliced cucumber on buttered white bread. I like to add a dash of hot mustard powder (Coleman's) to the softened butter.
what will you bring to the tea table, please?
Afternoon tea is not afternoon tea unless there's scones and strawberry jam. I'll bring them on the assumption that others will know there has to be other sandwiches than just cucumber and will bring the expected ham & mustard and smoked salmon.
In my basket will be Smoked Salmon Sandwiches on Pumpernickel, Goat Cheese and Watercress Tea Sandwiches, and my favorite Chicken Curry Tea Sandwiches. Someone else can bring the ham and mustard...
Thank you for the invitation.
