It was a cold day --
the day I was prepping for my King's Cake Cooking Class
And no matter how busy I am . . .
At half past three . . .
I stop for a cup of tea
The living room beckoned
There was a fire in the fireplace
And as always, when I take tea alone
My companion is a book
I was so looking forward
to Season 3!
Not my book but a loan from a friend . . .
I may have to treat myself to my own copy!
Perfect fodder, too, for my next class at life+style--
A "Downtown Abbey" Tea Class
with my "friend" Mrs. Simkins,
who is head cook at Downtown Abbey!
And the nosh?
Made from the scraps of puff pastry when I made the King's Cake.
Most were taken to the class as a pre-class munch.
But I did save out four for me!
One of my favorite tea treats.
And it reminds me that I need to buy some puff pastry to just make some for the freezer!
Two or three (or even four) taken out and baked off --
A tea time treat sublime!
No matter how hectic the day . . .
A cup of tea and a read
lets peace descend.
