Holidays and Things

I have been so busy helping other folks prepare for parties this month that I haven’t posted as much as I would like.  That doesn’t mean I haven’t been eating.  While much of my cooking efforts are focused on cooking for just myself, I do love to entertain.  I usually host a regional dinner for a select group of people monthly but we skipped December because of everyone’s schedule.  I think I may have made up for some of that by hosting a Christmas Tea.  I am including some pictures and descriptions here for your pleasure.  If something you see needs a recipe, just let me know.

We set up for 20 ladies.  Each table will have 2 teapots, 2 cream and sugars and lemon, a plate of savory nibbles and a plate of sweets.

Teapots all lined up for boiling water.  We used a tea blend from the Perennial Tea Room in Seattle called Room 11, It's Heaven.  Believe me it is.  It also has a very cute story about a 5th grade class studying the Boston Tea Party.
