I was hoping you'd stop by today because I wanted to share an idea with you. Come on in the kitchen. I have just started to make something yummy to have with tea. Please say you have time to stay for a cup of tea....
I am making my Mom's recipe for butterscotch brownies. Here is my old well used recipe card.
My recipes all live in this little house my talented sister painted many years ago.
Isn't it cute?
A few of the things I need.
The ingredients go in my KitchenAid mixer. Did I ever tell you that I got it at a yard sale a long time ago for only $15? That was a deal!
Mix them all up.
Put them in a greased pan and pop it in the oven for 25 minutes.
They come out looking golden and just a little bit brown around the edges.
While we are waiting for them to cool a little bit I'll get out the tray for tea. I thought we'd use mugs today and the blue willow teapot and creamer I got at a consignment shop that Fifi told me about when I was in Florida this past year.
I have this little plate with our initial on it, which I think is probably restaurant or hotel ware. I'll put the brownies on it.
Let's sit at the table by the window in my studio. I'm still very happy that I painted it white.
Everything is ready!
I'll pour you a cup.
Oh I should have asked you if you take milk! I just automatically put the milk in first just like my English aunt taught me :)
Please take a brownie while they are still warm. They are so good. I used to make these all the time and forgot how good they are and how easy to whip up in a hurry.
Now here is what I wanted to talk to you about. You know how much I like to drink tea and serve tea whenever you come to visit. Well I am going to have a tea party every Tuesday and I want you to be the first one to know about it. You are my special honored guest.
Every Tuesday I will have tea ready, and you are invited. Also I'd love it some of you would have tea parties too and link up with mine. Please spread the word.
I've made this button for you to copy and use and I'll put it on my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by. You brought some sunshine into a very dreary day here in North Carolina. I wish you really were here to eat some of these brownies. I'm eating too many of them!!
PS For those of you who prefer coffee, I'll make sure I also have coffee for you next Tuesday!!
