We interrupt this previously scheduled report with some late-breaking news. It's snowing! Eeeeeeeeeeeee! The sabertooth mammoths are going to come down from the glaciers and hunt me down and tread me into the tundra because they're mean bastards. Being extinct will do that to a species. HATE snow!!
OK, back to our previously scheduled report.
We were twenty two at the knitter's tea yesterday. Ten in the dining room, and twelve in the living room and laughter and joy for all. Here's the best part-in-action photo I got.
Individual cheesecakes with cherry topping, and fancy wrappers. When DH saw me assembling the wrappers he asked what they were. I told him they were party dresses for the cheese cakes.
I'm quite chuffed with myself over the tiered plate I made. A round mirror on the bottom, then 3 champagne glasses supporting a glass turntable from an old microwave. Space was at a premium and I needed to stack the food.
From the top down, almond macarons, middle tier: shortbread cookies with marion berry jam filling (YUM!) and peanut butter cookies. Bottom tier: Dark chocolate brownies and milk chocolate brownies with cinnamon.
There were lots of clementines left over. Go figure.
