Pre-Surgical Tea for Mom – The 411

Tea for mom - october 2014

Today, we hosted a tea in honor of our mother to show our support for her upcoming surgery.  When my mom had cancer eight years ago, we started the tradition of hosting a tea for her.  Our mom collects teapots from all over the world.

Today, a few family friends came to high noon tea.  I spent the last two days baking.  The menu:

Orange Cranberry Scones

Buttermilk Scones

Current Scones

Cinnamon Breakfast Cake

Lemon-Vanilla Pound Cake

Vinegar Tarts

Gluten Free Brownies

Fudge Brownies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Cucumber Herb Cream Cheese Sandwiches

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Turkey and Italian Submarine Bites

Assorted Cheeses and Crackers

Wheat Herb Baguette Rounds

Assorted Teas, Honey, Lemon, Whipped Honey

Lemon Curd

Strawberry Preserves

Champagne Mimosas

My mother and our guests had a great time and the food, of course was awesome.  I love entertaining.  We are looking forward to hosting her “cancer-free” tea.

Time for my castor oil pack !!  Have a great weekend !!
