Thanks to our sweet friend Emily at A Beautiful Life for sponsoring another Thursday Tea Time! We certainly would not have taken the time and effort to get out our best china and eat in the parlor, if not for you, dear!
This morning we had some lovely zucchini pancakes with our tea, with homemade hawthorn berry syrup and banana/lavender custard for dessert.
The tea was a blend of lavender blossoms and goldenrod from our garden,
and all was sweetened with a product called "More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend", which we used because it is diabetic friendly, and won't raise AnnaMarie's blood sugar. Normally we use regular powdered stevia, but its green color is not quite so appealing on the tea table!
We hope that he or she has time to turn into a butterfly before the weather is too cold to fly south. This was the first Monarch caterpillar we'd found all summer, so we were very excited about it.
Thank you for joining us today for our Breakfast Tea; may you enjoy the simple pleasures that the day holds for you.
A Day Of Tea
I like a nice cup of tea in the morning,
For the start of the day you see,
And at half past eleven,
For my idea of heaven,
Is a nice cup of tea.
I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner,
And a nice cup of tea with my tea.
And when it's time for bed,
There's a lot to be said,
For a nice cup of tea!
