I found this book when I was out to tea with a friend, Gayle, at a lovely little tearoom that used to live in Niwot, Colorado called Reverend Taylor's Attic. The owner, Cee, has since moved on to open her own Bed & Breakfast with tearoom in Longmont, Colorado. I will get there someday!
Towards the back of the book is a listing of several Tea Time Menus. I thought the "Cottage Tea" sounded delightful this morning.
Rosemary Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches
Curried Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches
Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches
Cinnamon Pecan Cream Scones
Clotted Cream & Jam
Date Filled Cookies
Pot of Tea
Sigh. Of course, I don't have most of the ingredients, and even if I did, I don't think "eating for two" should be "eating for ten". Plus, I doubt this would fit into the Body for Life eating plan. Good thing there are "free days"!
I may do chicken salad or egg salad for lunch, though. I mix it with blended cottage cheese instead of mayonaisse which really reduces all the bad stuff. For the egg salad I would toss most of the egg yolks and just add one or two to the batch for color. It's the little things. Boy, the smoked salmon sounds good. Of course, I'm sure once I smelled it I would change my mind.
