Recently my mom gave me her grandmother’s china and several of her pretty serving pieces. As I was storing them away the thought came to me that my mom can’t really enjoy a trip to a proper tea shop anymore, so I decided to bring the proper tea shop to her. We set the table with my great-grandma’s china and I made scones, Devonshire cream, chocolate covered strawberries, lemon bars, and chicken salad sandwiches on croissants. There was also English Breakfast tea, of course.
It was a lovely lunch today with the six ladies (my mom, myself, and my four girls) and worth all the time in the kitchen both in prep and clean up. And now we have a lot of scones left over, so guess what’s for breakfast tomorrow?
