Welcome friends for tea this week. We went out for lunch one day and with the food I ordered, I felt we could have been sitting in the Indigo Tea Shop, owned by one Theodosia Browning. If the name is familiar, she's the main character in the Tea Shop Mysteries written by Laura Childs.
It was the she crab soup that got me to thinking this way. In the books the soup served in the shop sounds tantalizing and I must say this bowl of it was very tasty.
There was no revenge involved with my chilled glass of sweet tea, only refills upon request.
Mmm...homemade key lime pie that was absolutely decadent and the best I've eaten in Florida so far.
Have you read the Tea Shop Mysteries? They're fun, and of course involve various blends of tea and typical tea shop fare. There's always an engaging mystery too.
The only thing missing from my meal was a light and fluffy scone, which unfortunately isn't served in a seafood restaurant.
If you are a fan of the Tea Shop Mysteries, 'Steeped in Evil' will be released on March 4.
Besides being taken to high tea for my birthday, I received some teas, a necklace from hubby and flowers from the family in the far north. What a nice surprise to have flowers delivered to the door when you least expect it.
I played with the photo of the bouquet in Waterlogue, the new app on my iPad...
and came up with this nice effect to make them look like a watercolour painting.
Sunday was the last of Downton Abbey for this season and Macy's has a large display of Downton Abbey jewelry for sale.
