It is Tuesday which means it is time for tea and Downton gossip. The days are getting longer, and the warmer weather is slowly starting to make itself at home. Encouraged, Lord D. bought me a new pink bicycle which I will name Daisy, although she looks like a Penelope to me.
Sadly all is not right in the world. Last Monday I lost a friend to pancreatic cancer. Yesterday the we are stunned by the senseless bombing at the Boston Marathon. I always looked forward to race day, when I could put months of training to the test. From joy of accomplishment to utter shock and disbelief in a blink of an eye. My prayers to all those affected, and a way forward so that we can live in a kinder gentler world.
But we must put on a happy face and move forward. As you may know, Tea Tuesday is a weekly tradition I started last year, dishing about Downton Abbey, featuring a new “Downton” era recipe. Check out my Online Guide to Afternoon Tea, helpful in understanding traditions and recipes to help you host your own tea party with family and friends.
Last week we made DIY Jello, this week today’s dish is Strawberry Water Ice, one of many ices (aka frozen desserts) I fancied enough to put in my cookbook.
It will have to hold you for a few weeks as I will be offline planning and then taking a trip to Bermuda. See you in May with new recipes.
