Welcome friends for tea this week. Last month when I picked up some great bargains at a garage sale right around the corner from our house, this pretty robin's egg blue teacup was one of them.
Blue with gold leaves on the outside, there are pretty violets on the inside.
Set on a silver tray with a couple of pink carpet roses and an aqua napkin, ready for the tea when it brews. A rooibos chocolate mint, bought at the grocery store and is quite nice, not overpowering with the mint. But I think you want to hear about the Elvis donut, don't you?
Sunday was DH's birthday and we went to Jack Astor's, his favourite restaurant for lunch. He had a shrimp pad thai and I had the junkboat chicken but there are no photos of these. When we first sat down, the waiter asked if it was a special occasion and I replied about the birthday. After lunch a brownie was delivered with a sparkler and best wishes but I wasn't quick enough to catch the sparkler before it fizzled.
I had a look at the dessert menu and the waiter recommended the Elvis Donut. Well, you only live once so I said I'd try it.
A description from the menu. Doesn't it sound decadent?
The Elvis Donut - a piece of heaven served on a banana leaf. It was so good!
