Then suddenly it was time for tea! Kathleen brought her famous scones, studded with berries and accompanied by luscious homemade vanilla whipped cream. She also spooned egg salad into mini phyllo cups and sprinkled them with chopped bacon. Ummm hmmm. It was divine. In the distance you can see her mini bread squares that are spread with dilled cream cheese and topped with flower-shaped cucumber slices. I made us a chicken and asparagus quiche
and this plate of individual strawberry pavlovas. I tried this meringue-shell dessert from a recipe I found in the January/February issue of Tea Time magazine. Aren't they pretty?
It was a picture-perfect "Tea for Two." We decided that we loved baking and preparing the food as much as we did eating it. We are peas in a pod when it comes to tea party fare, so why not enjoy it together. We made our own moment of delight.
