Girls love pampering, chocolate and gossip. To finish off my heavenly weekend (keep in mind this was wayyyy back at the beginning of this month), I had a manicure and a pedicure… and then arranged for high tea with the girls. I love high tea. All of us turned up in pretty summer dresses and stuffed ourselves with enough sugar to last a year. We spoke about uni, work, family, partners, holidays and aspirations. Nora then joked about it being called ‘high tea’ because we were so high on sugar. But who could resist? Everything was mouth-watering goodness.
freshly baked raison scones… I lathered mine up with plenty of cream and strawberry jam
sandwiches and more! proscuitto with pickled onion, smoked salmon with capers…
mixed berry cheesecake
petite lemon meringue and fruit tarts
The warm foods were delectable morsels of pleasure. The home-baked pies consisted of chunky pieces of pumpkin, gravy and steak. And the rissoles were spiced with traceable bits of chorizo… so wholesome and rich.
finger foods, quickes, rissoles, mini pies
creme brulee… perhaps the biggest disappointment of the weekend. There was too much egg and the topping was a hardly crystalised :'(
