The Teapot Returns


It was so nice to have the traveling teapot arrive back at my house for a visit. Marilyn and her husband stopped by for lunch on the first day of their "Friends and Family 2012" road trip and brought the traveling teapot with them. I invited my friend and neighbor, Karleen, to join us. We enjoyed a simple lunch of quiche, roasted sweet potatoes, farm fresh asparagus, fresh baked bread, and spinach salad with strawberries and poppy seed dressing. Marilyn kindly made two types of tea; Golden Yunnan and Shanti Tulsi Tisane to go with dessert. We enjoyed an "Obst Kuchen" that was made recipe that's been in my family for many years. [Obst Kuchen is a German recipe for a fresh fruit flan sponge cake.] The time flew by! How fun it was to chat about tea, gardens, and family with Jim and Marilyn. Too soon they had to head back on the road so they could travel to their destination for the night. It was special to have tea-friend Marilyn stop by.

It was a delicious lunch for sure. And so fun to make tea for LaDonna in her kitchen.

What fun to have the teapot and friends stop by on it's travels. Your menu sounded absolutely nummy.
