I have been waiting for summer to arrive since last fall, and finally it is here. This week I will be leaving for our annual family fishing trip to the West Coast which I have written about more than once. I will be offline for a week or two. Sadly our travel plans through the Rockies might be changed with the flood damage to the Calgary area. Equally disappointing will be a smaller version of the world famous Calgary Stampede as flood waters have completed covered the grounds. My mom thoroughly enjoys putting her horse on display in the horse barns every year. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose homes have been ravaged by nature.
As you may know, Tea Tuesday is a weekly tradition I started, dishing about Downton Abbey, featuring a new “Downton” era recipe. Refer to my Online Guide to Afternoon Tea, helpful in understanding traditions and recipes to help you host your own tea party with family and friends.
This week’s treat, Courting Cake, is inspired by our son Master Stephen and his girlfriend Lady Emma, who stopped by this weekend on their way to spend a year in Australia together.
