For our tea break today, it’s rhubarb again…..this time a layered square; a baked buttery crust, next is a thickened rhubarb mixture, then a layer of mini marshmallows in whipped cream, all topped with a vanilla custard. This is a very delicious dessert. We had a committee meeting at our house last night and this is all that is left for today!.
My china is Royal Worcester Gold Chantilly. I purchased a set of 8 place settings a long time ago, quite unintentionally…Originally I bought a set of china with 24 carat gold trim at a very good price, and was going to use it for every day . When my family saw it, they all said ”Oh, Mom, it looks like you got this as a premium at a gas station!” So my little daughter and I trooped back to the store, and her choice happened to be the most expensive china they carried...I believe it was this Royal Crown Derby, or one similar ….
so we both settled on this one… just to tell you how long ago this took place, the entire 8 person set was $125!
The pink and white plate is part of the set I do use every day,… Dansk “Trellis”. I always like Dansk…it doesn’t chip easily.
Anyway, not much time to chat today… I must get out and plant my annuals in that almost-empty garden. You can see them waiting in the foreground.
Be sure and visit Sandi at her weekly tea party.
