Pretty Pink teatime...
I had a wonderful afternoon Tuesday... I decided since this whole Summer I haven't been able to have tea in
So I made teatime inside
I woke up early and started in. The night before I had been looking for recipes... but I do that
pretty much all the time anyways.. I love Susan Branch and all her drawings and watercolors.
I enjoy reading her blog and Willards
This is what I made Susan's Cream Scones
and the Gingerbread Cake
and the Lemon Linguine..
and I made my own Lemon Chicken
The teapot set I bought two years ago and I haven't been able to use it...
I think It's such a pretty set. I had been looking for a teapot with a pink band around
it and finally I have found it..
The Gingerbread Cake..
with the last large rose some berries from the back
and some Apple mint leaves..
The Recipes are in her Autumn Book...
It's so wonderful and colorful..

I love and adore baking..and Susan's Recipe books make it all even better. They are definitely alive..
mixing it all up ...
Out the oven.. and smelling heavenly..
And ready to serve...
Just a small tea for me and Vee and the boys..
This is my older grandson who lives with me Isaiah.. He is just loving the Cream Scones, I use mini chocolate chips because no one but me in my house like currants or raisins ...
He tried the cake and didn't seem to want any...Till yesterday evening when the Scones
where all gone.. after Church me and him ate then had tea.. but he didn't like the tea either
so he decided milk would do the trick for him and a piece of
He spends a lot of time with me now he escapes from the bedroom and leave's little bother behind and chills
All different styles of plates the bottom is a USA plate probably from the 60's
I found at a Goodwill...
then a Homer Laughlin plate from the teashop.. probably the first of things I saw and
then my newer set...
I think they all just do fine together
The sweet Homer Laughlin luncheon plate............
I love them.. as soon as I saw them I bought four all eight.. I had to buy four then have her hold
the other four and she did so sweet to me..
Cream Scones a mixin...
All the dry ingredients ready Flour, Salt, Baking Powder
Added the mini chocolate chips
and the heavy whipping cream
So simple thank you Susan..
Next time I will be using the currants. ..
because that's what I love...
Mix and pat them out
and cut them out and place on a baking sheet..
It makes around ten Scones
Ready for the Oven...
All finished they smell so good...
what a morning in the house.. it smelled wonderful all day long.. it took a few hours to get
everything all done..
So we had tea at 4:00 O'clock
I really really liked this Orange Butter which is Susan's recipe as well Yummie..
I liked it on the Gingerbread Cake..
This set has a lovely teapot sugar and creamer.. I believe eight Luncheon plates.. Four teacups and saucers
and one large plate
The teapot flowers are a bit different but they all look good to me..
Lemon Linguine..was very refreshing.. everyone loved it...
Lemon Linguine recipe was found in this Summer Book..
Well I think that's it.. I just wanted to share my little tea party with you all
