An Autumn Tea

Last Friday we attended a tea party hosted by the S. family. Take a look at our lovely afternoon…

The Menu

Roasted Carrot Soup

Sandwiches

Fruit Salad

Chicken Beggar’s Purses

Dessert

Chocolate Trifle

Date Triangles

Sandies

Pumpkin Kolaches

For lunch our hostesses served Roasted Carrot Soup, garnished with scallops, bacon and sour cream.

The U. family brought Cucumber sandwiches. We provided Spiral sandwiches and Turkey Cranberry sandwiches.

The K. family made Five Ingredient Salad. This is my favorite fruit salad recipe – I’ll have to give you the recipe some time…

Our hostesses also served Chicken Beggar’s Purses – chicken filling inside a won ton wrapper, fried in a thin layer of oil.

After chatting and allowing the food from lunch to “settle”, we had tea.
