I'm joining in the Chocolate Cookie Spring Party sponsored by Cielo, The House in the Roses
What better for Spring than chocolate?
It's too cold (and rainy) this first day of Spring to be outside on the prairie and so our tea shall be inside -- in the warmth and comfort of our breakfast room which overlooks the back garden.
But it's not friendly having tea by oneself so I have invited a dear friend to join me. We shall sip tea, enjoy the chocolate cookies, and watch the antics of the birds in the garden.
They ARE chocolate. But the chocolate is inside. Chocolate chunks. It makes for a tasty cookie.
They are easy to make, served slightly warm so the chocolate is melting as you bite into a cookie.
A great way to celebrate spring!
The breakfast room table has one of our Easter rabbits as a centerpiece. A tall bunny loaded with carrots and other vegetables in his backpack.
I love blue and white especially the English dishes -- be it for dinner or tea. These are by Wedgwood and are the Asiatic Pheasant pattern. It is a tea set -- the pot, sugar and creamer, cups, saucers and dessert plates make up the service. We take our tea plain (as does our guest) and so the pot, cups and saucers and plates are on the table.
The cookies are on a pedastal cake plate -- piled high because you can't eat just one!
Celebrating spring should be done with tea and cookies and while we sip and munch, we admire the daffodils and grape hyacinths that are struggling in the cold and wet that the first day of Spring brings to the prairie.
