Spoilt for choice

So, dear readers, this is the awful evidence…. tea for just two!
In the library…
without lead piping or revolver!
It was delicious and great fun….

…… although it will be some time before I get over the library decor: a wall papered in ‘book shelf’ wallpaper, whilst the real shelves held…. some carefully arranged ornaments, a few books and… a LOT of LOGS!
How about that?
Oooh – and you had the ‘before’ picture… here is the ‘after’
Just two little lonely chocolate slices and a few bits of salad remain! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset - but have had to leave the countryside at a little distance, having moved into town.

    Looks delicious! I’m taking notes as to the tray contents. The church mother/daughter tea is supposed to be in my backyard in a couple of weeks and I want to do it “right.” 🙂

      So, here goes… choice of 2 sandwich fillings (salmon & cream cheese / egg mayonnaise & cress) on brown bread + crisps salad (an unusual addition and hard to eat politely!)
      fruit scone with jam & clotted cream
      choice of cakes: pineapple & kiwi fruit tartlet, chocolate eclair, ginger & ? cake, fruit & nut cake, and lastly chocolate sponge. Washed down with copious cups of tea.
      We gave up before the fifth cake!
      Good luck with your event 🙂

  4. Dibs on anything chocolate! Oh, my that looks sooooo gooood! I’m intrigued by the pineapple and kiwi fruit tartlet — I wouldn’t have imagined those two fruits together but sounds tasty.

      It totally worked – but was quite hard to eat – the pastry shattered in an alarming manner. Oh, and I forgot to mention the fresh strawberries – I ate these, but really I am a purist: strawberries are for Wimbledon and should be eaten ‘in season’.

    Written out it looks even greedier Susan!
