|"English Summer Roses"|
Such a hot day. What on earth possessed me to make a beef casserole? Looking in the freezer I see way too many bags of valley gravy beef. Okay. She's been seared, flavoured and is simmering away on the stove. A sip of left over red wine used to release the browny bits on the bottom of the dish. Ooooh - flushed cheeks - I do feel hot.
Why a piping cup of hot tea of course!
Served no less than in a beautiful vintage cup and saucer.
How can I resist a piece of springy, moist cherry sponge cake?
Well then - I won't.
With a touch of the last of the jasmine -
a whole year to wait till I see you through my kitchen window again.
Oh well - that's living with the season I guess.
Happy Afternoon Tea To You.
