To kick off the new season of Downton Abbey, we invited friends to watch it with us. I made a steamed mincemeat pudding which I served with custard sauce.
The silver teas service was inherited from my Mom as was the much - used silver serving spoon. I served the pudding in the crystal bowls shown.
The platter has a "regal" insignia!
We used Royal Worchester "Gold Chantilly" china for our tea, but the program was about to start , and we didn't want to miss one moment, so I didn't get pictures.
I do hope that there are not too many scandalous scenes in Season Five...yes I do know these things took place, but I don't care for graphic portrayals of them!
When watching repeats of Season Four I noticed a table in Isobel Crawley's home which looked very familiar. It is almost identical to one my Dad made from a kit many years ago and which we have in our family room. Photo below taken at Christmas.
On Saturday the weather here was still warm, so we headed out to Hecla Island with my Mom and our Granddaughter.We stopped at a little rest area for a cup of coffee and Mom’s wonderful cinnamon buns. (above)Lake Winnipeg fishermen bring their catch to be unloaded at the Fish Station.This is a typical scene along the shore.Grandpa and Granddaughter dropped a line …no luck… all in all, it was a lovely day…There was also time to enjoy the water park at the Gull Harbour Resort.
