Tuesday Tea time Apr 8, 2014

We are home from the desert! Although our snow banks here are still very large, it is good to be home. I missed seeing all your blogs (no internet at the house we rented)

We saw some nice strawberries when shopping for groceries today, so I made some filled cream puffs for our tea .

The strawberries included with the filling use an unusual ingredient…pepper! I wasn’t sure I would like it, but it adds a certain depth to the flavour.

Welcome home Millie. We've still got a fair bit of snow in our part of Ontario but it's starting to warm up outside.
I think pepper might be a surprisingly pleasant addition to recipes. A friend made scones that had pepper in one time and they were delicious.
Happy Spring.

Welcome home, Millie! You've been missed! It still looks like March here but Spring is in the air at last. Your cream puffs and strawberries look amazing. I would imagine a wee bit of pepper would add some interest. Yum! So happy you were able to join me for tea this week. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hello Millie,
Welcome home! Sorry about the snow! We are all having extra winter this year. How wonderful you were out in the sunshine.
Your strawberry cream puffs look so very tasty! I haven't made cream puffs for every. Thank you for reminding me : )

Glad you enjoyed the desert and the cactus. The strawberry and puff pastry look delicious. The fresh strawberries were hard here all winter so I didn't buy any. The watermelon has been delicious so that has been our sweet fruit this winter and now spring. Your tea table is so appealing. Have a great week!
