Welcome to our Tea Party and reflections on my garden and tea from July of 2009....I hope you love Peter Rabbit and Beatrix Potter because I sure do. Yesterday we actually had a little snow in Colorado Springs so I am still in a garden reflection mode as the garden isn't quite ready yet! I had 5 rose bushes in packaging which I had to bring in the kitchen. When I saw these pictures back in my photos I wanted to bring them forward.
I have baked some lovely "Mrs Rabbit's" Currant Buns
that you can make with your little ones......very easy!
Beatrix would say our table is "perfectly appointed
Mr. Jeremy Fisher has arrived early....
And other friends.......
And of course Miss Bella, the neighbors momma cat.....
I do so hope you will come for tea says Jeremy........
Recipe for Mrs Rabbit's Currant Buns comes from the ...Peter Rabbit's Cookery Book..now sadly out of print.
This is very easy to make with children...just combine in a medium bowl as follows:
8 oz self rising flour, pinch of salt, 3 oz butter, 2 oz sugar, 1 egg, 2 Tb milk and 2 oz currants Bake at 425 degrees for about 8 - 12 minutes
Watch for browning at 8 minutes Makes 12 buns
Do take time to go out into the garden and have tea with the little ones.....these are memories that will last forever...........I need to share that I no longer have this tea set. I sold it at my shop because I felt I had "too many".
