Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Tea After A Trip To the City

A Friend and I ventured to the city
To shop . . .
To have lunch

Our luncheon destination of choice?

The one near the Country Club Plaza
(not the new one in Overland Park)
for I much favor the original.

With it's quaint dining room

And showcases of chocolates

No matter how full you are from lunch
It's hard to pass up those cases of sweets!

We didn't stay as long as we intended to
For it started to snow
And we got home early

In time for me to brew a wee pot of tea

And catch up with the mail!

Blue for tea, of course
My Burleigh Asiatic Pheasant
It's a paler blue than any of my Spode

And I did bring something home from Andres
(besides bread and salad dressing)

A macaron and two macaroons
Perfect for afternoon tea!

Served on a wee tiered server
Which goes so well with the wee tea pot!

It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday  and with Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea.

Sounds like you enjoyed your outing, Martha. Your tea treats look good and tea in a wee teapot or a regular sized one is always a welcome sight! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea. Have a lovely week.

What a great "trip to the city." Wish we had something similar near me.
And I would NOT have been able to pass up those show cases of chocolate!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

That is a showcase I would enjoy choosing treats from. I'm glad you put macaroons and a macaron side by side so readers can see they are two different sweets. I believe there is some confusion as to what a macaron is.

Martha said...

Judith, I agree. And I love both which is why I got some of each. And they were delicious tea treats!

Bernideen said...

That case is a feast for the eyes. It is supposed to snow here as well. Have a great day!

We LOVE Andre's on Main, too!!! Pretty much impossible to pass up the chocolates as you leave. I don't even try.
