February 14th Valentines Day
For the past few years my husband and I have gone to a posh swanky hotel in London for a valentines afternoon tea so this year we are having to settle for an afternoon tea at home.
Last year we went to lanes of London for there free flowing botanical afternoon tea which was very nice. I do like having a glass of bubbles or two with my afternoon tea . I have 2 bottles of chapel down English sparking rose chilling in wine cooler ready to open. We brought a box of 6 bottles in the summer when we visited the chapel down vineyard in Kent. Which if you like your wine is well worth a visit for a tour and tasting session
I have been planning the below menu for past few weeks.
|Goats cheese and caramelised onion tart from Morrison the best range|
|Egg mayonnaise in granary bread finger sandwiches and chicken, brie and cranberry in white bread finger sandwiches |
|Homemade by me vanilla and red velvet cupcakes|
|My homemade banana and caramel blondies i featured on my post a few weeks ago . I put them in the freezer to use today|
|Iceland frozen assorted macaroons|
|Chapel Down English sparkling rose wine|
It was a lovely family Valentines afternoon tea with Hubby , Daughter and my 15 year old son who actually ventured out of his room and turned off his computer for a few hours !!!!!!
Unfortunately they were all camera shy !!!!!!
