Sue wanted High Tea. Sue didn't want to make it. So Sue, asked "moi" to cater. I didn't hesitate, a chance to bake cake, lots of cake! And so to work I went.
So, what was on the menu.......
Red Salmon and Cucumber
Beef and Chilli Jam
Turkey and Cranberry
Smoked Ham and Havarti
(the teeny tiny ones on sticks)
Savoury Boats - Brie, Smoked Salmon and Capers
Egg and Bacon Tarts
Scones with Jam and Cream
Passion fruit Matches
Lemon Meringue Tarts
The birthday cake - Cupcakes with vanilla butter cream icing.
The good news is everybody enjoyed the faire and most importantly nobody died. Such a relief!!
After the party, I came home and flopped in a chair, it had been a big few days of food preparation so I didn't unpack my car. Monday I had to go out so I took my sons car. Tuesday I had to go out, I was running late, I took my car, still with a china and plastic containers.......Thursday, it was my turn for morning tea - I need icing sugar, I got it out of the front seat......Thursday night, my husband was wandering around the kitchen looking for dinner plates - I said they were in the boot of my car - he doesn't even ask anymore when these statements are made - he just went and got the good set out of the dining room.........
Have a great week.
