Welcome friends for tea this week. When I bake, my iPad is in the kitchen with me as I've been putting all my favourite recipes in iCloud documents. Reading the recipes while the iPad lay flat on the counter was hard and so I began a search for something to hold it upright. There are, in fact, a number of gadgets on the market but I chose a Belkin product for the sturdiness.
It comes with a stylus for page movement and also to wake up the iPad if it goes into sleep mode.
I must say it is working out well, and was purchased from Amazon. (pricier than other models but at least I know the iPad won't flip over when pressing on the screen. The recipe that is open is marmalade muffins from the Mennonite Girls Can Cook website and they are delicious.
The only change I made was 1/4 cup applesauce to replace the same amount of oil. (that's one snack cup size) I usually make this supplement and it doesn't change the texture all that much.
I'm using a Staffordshire Elizabethan teacup today.
I'm taking tea at the kitchen table where my centrepiece is a birdcage with a little bird inside sitting on a nest.
I found something new at the grocery store on the weekend.
Tramezzinni are used to create Venetian tea sandwiches and they were found at the right time for me as I'm hosting a luncheon tomorrow. Not having to cut all the crusts off my sandwiches will make it much easier, and quicker for preparation.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll join my hosts and their guests for tea.
