I love my DH (dear hubby). There are moments in life when I just look at him with adoration, and today was one of those days. Here's why: I had planned a "Tea for Two" as my May tea party. My friend, Sweetcakes, has had a whirlwind month and I wanted to give her a few moments of rest and relaxation. Also, she had gifted me with some lovely Old Country Roses pieces and I was saving them to use with her. So, we planned a lunch appointment for tea. Then, things at work exploded this week and I became very busy. The DH announced to me recently, "I'm going to do your tea party food. It's my Mother's Day present to you (and my life will be better because you won't be stressed out.)"
Well, he did a fantastic job. He planned and prepared three courses and paired the teas. He's just a sweetheart and I'm grateful. I'm also grateful to Sweetcakes for sharing a part of her day with me!
Here are some photos...
First course: fresh cherry scones
(Remember, the DH put the menu together and did all the cooking! Tho that's not so unusual at my house.)
These scones were very good - we ate them bare b/c the DH told us, "anything else would ruin the scone." I think he was right!
