“The business of life is the acquisition of memories. In the end that’s all there is.” -Carson, Downton Abbey, Season 6
Hello, sweet friend…
Eat your heart out Mrs. Patmore. (aka…the cook at Downton Abbey who believes she runs the house)
Today I thought It would be fun to share with you the highlights of a recent Downton Abbey Tea party I attended in California at my California girlfriend’s house with my California girlfriends!
I felt so privileged to be included in this special afternoon…and even more excited that I happened to be in California when it was being hosted.
The first course was a homemade mandarin orange/almond scone.
The second course was a delicious creamy butternut squash soup.
The Third course was a delicious bow tie pasta salad was served with sandwiches. The sandwiches were a maple pecan cream cheese on pumpkin bread…egg salad on a 12 grain bread…and a turkey avocado on a soft roll.
The Fourth course was chocolate pudding with fresh raspberries & ice cream paired with shortbread cookies.perfecto!
