Cream Tea ...........

Just finished up another Peter Robinson book in which a cream tea was mentioned. Here are some pictorial highlights of the tea below. Book review may be found at my book site HERE

This clotted cream was purchased at World Market and always has a good sweet consistency.

Yorkshire tea made a nice change from the PG Tips tea, but I never complain about PG Tips…good stuff there. Here are some delectable scones.... I just cannot make them round.

On my list of books to read before the end of November are The Hanging Valley by Peter Robinson (#4 in the Inspector Banks series),
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Rigler, Heartburn by Nora Ephron and Paris in Love: Memoir by Eloisa James. We shall see how that goal pans out. Especially with Thanksgiving coming up.

Unfortunately I don’t think we’ll be able to visit with our son and his wife this Thanksgiving as he will be training at Ft Polk in Louisiana. The army didn’t consider holiday visits in their scheduling…alas.

Hope you all are enjoying some good weather in the beginning of November.

Clotted cream, yum. One of my many great memories of Devon and Cornwall. I don't think I can get it here. Hope you have a good week.

Thanks much, Carole. You may be able to order the clotted cream through a company called World Market. That's where we purchased ours. Don't know about the shipping costs though.

Grilling Chicken and Asparagus

This new Weber grill has taken the heat out of the kitchen and outside on the porch. Perfect when the temperatures are reaching the upper 90...
