Mother’s Day is just a couple of weeks away! Last year to celebrate our special day, we went to a quaint tea room in Lake Mary, Florida called The Dickens Tea and Coffee Room.
They served us an assortment of the most delectably delicate finger sandwiches and the tastiest pastries I have ever tried. Also, scones with jam and cream. Amazing!
Plus, the tea was steeped to perfection. And, oh yes, real sugar cubes!
I kept asking my mom in my best British accent, "Would you like a spot of tea? One lump of two?" I think that she wanted to give me a bump on me head before the afternoon was over. Sometimes I take things too far.
It was a lovely afternoon.
I can't wait to fill up the sugar bowls with sugar cubes. I am going to sit next to my mom again this year and ask her, "One lump or two?", all afternoon! Love you, Mom! You are such a loverly Mum!
P.S. If anyone has any tea sandwich recipes or pastries recipes you would like to share, we are all ears. Please just leave a comment below or on FB. Smooches to you!
