I have the best job in the world
I write articles for two magazines
on local cooks.
The cooks invite me into their kitchen
and we chat
and they provide a recipe
and the dish that that recipe makes.
both the cook and the dish
And when I leave, often I get to take things home.
Saturday, I was in Nevada
interviewing next month's cook
He made lemon blueberry scones.
He sent me home with two!
Often on Sundays we have a Sunday Lunch
We've now been eating out for Sunday Lunch
A big meal
In the middle of the day.
Instead of dinner
we often chose tea instead.
With Mike's lemon blueberry scones
and a pot of Earl Grey
It was a lovely late afternoon respite
After some time in the garden
And a Sunday nap!
When we have tea on Sunday
it is Sunday and so we chose china instead of our beloved blue and white
My other collection
Asian inspired bird and chrysanthemum china
in pinks and greens and aquas
The scone, perfect for tea
With an English bone handled fork
On a Royal Stafford Rock Bird tea plate
The cups and saucers are Spode Famille Rose
Like the blue and white, I think the variety of these Asian patterns work well together.
It's late afternoon,
the dogs have been taken to the park for their weekly run,
the nap's been taken
We found the scones lovely!
And perfect for Sunday Tea.
