It is ages since I saw you, now let me think, oh yes when we had the garden party. Do you remember my firework tree, he he. What about all the apple blossom, that has fruited wonderfully and I have made stacks of jams and jellies and masses of apple sauce. Yes of course I will find you a jar or three to take home, I might be persuaded to rootle out a jar of mincemeat as well, it wont be long you know before we will be up to our armpits in mince pies and sausage rolls.
Here it is, oops I have chopped the top off the sponge cake, let me have another try.
There that is better, you need a slice of sponge at a tea party. I used the Silver Maple china, it has the biggest pot, oh dear I haven't put the sugar in the bowl yet, it will only take a minute. I always forget the sugar, we don't use it.
Mini quiches, so much easier than a slice to handle, no forks needed.
Cinnamon and Apple Cake, just the job for a chilly afternoon, I may warm a slice up and have some cream with it, naughty but nice.
Norfolk Shortcakes, Grannies recipe, just for old times sake.
Yes there are plenty of scones with butter and jam, and the cream is in the fridge.
A single crust apple pie, I could not just bin the extra pastry and I've plenty of apples, you can take that home if you want.
I hope that you have had enough to eat, if not there is plenty more where that came from, I always bake too much. It takes me back to when I was a little girl, Sunday morning in the kitchen with Granny baking up a storm. We would start early and finish just in time for dinner at 12.00 on the dot.
Any way I better see you on your way, you have a drive home and the weather report is for high winds, watch out for tree branches and dustbin lids.
Don't worry about the washing up, Fran and I will get through that in no time.
Thank you for coming, don't be a stranger drop in when ever you like. TTFN Pam
