Is it possible to overeat and overdrink at an afternoon tea ? Yes, even if you include a walk down and up hill after the muffin !!!! And I have no room at all for any food this evening.
I had invited some friends around for afternoon tea in the garden as part of my birthday celebration. And the weather behaved to some degree, meaning we only had to "run" in door after eating the strawberry pie/cake with everything due to rain.
My guests were reluctant to try the combination of lavender meringue with Earl Grey with lavender, as it perhaps would give them lavender nightmares. I hope, that I am able to convince some of my work colleagues to evaluate this combination later on this week.
This is the afternoon tea menu: I will share the rest of the recipes with you at a later stage.
- various teas like Earl Grey with lavender
- sparkling wine
- sandwiches with two different fillings (cucumber and egg)
- strawberry pie/cake
- muffin with elder flowers
And you can see tea menu here.
Thank you for some great company this afternoon :-)
Thank you very much for this gift, which is highly appreciated, and I am looking forward to taste and read my goodie-box :-)
