She brewed a pot of her delicious 'Mariage Fereres' French tea and served it in a generous ironstone mug along with a 'Sunny Side Up' ~ made from scratch puff pastry with poached apricots, pastry cream (yum) and a delicious glaze; a Julia Child recipe. So pretty, so tasty!
There were three more on this 'cool' vintage cooling rack but let's just say that the three of us really enjoyed our mid-day 'tea'. (her hubby joined us)
And..if that wasn't enough...she sent me on my merry way with a beautifully wrapped box (yes girlies, those are her initials) with strict instructions that "they must be eaten before the day is done" and a warning that "they will not be good tomorrow!"
As French music played I felt as though I was whisked away to a little bistro in Paris!
"I hope you ate yours tonight too Carol!"
Thanks a bunch Dearie!
