Tea Time in our Neighborhood

I have blogged before about the neighborhood GTG's we have on our little country road. Here is one post.

For today's event, it was ladies only - it was Tea Time!

Bev, my neighbor across the street, was the hostess, and she went all out - trying the recipes for various scones and sandwiches. She settled on two types of scones - cranberry orange and blueberry, along with orange butter, traditional clotted cream, and two homemade jams from another neighbor.

The open-faced sandwiches were curried chicken salad with grapes and herbed goat cheese with cucumber slices. Also endive with two types of cream cheese filling, one with chives and one with basil. Plus chocolate-dipped strawberries.

And tea, of course - Jasmine and Earl Grey. Being a food-a-holic, I was more interested in the food than the tea.

We picked some of the roses from Bill's garden for the tables.05-01-10a.JPG

Twelve of us attended - it was a beautiful day and the view of the mountains (even as far as Mt. San Jacinto in Palm Springs) was very picturesque.

We all ate enough that no dinner was needed. Thanks Bev.
