Cooler Weather

It was such a beautiful day today. It only got up to around 75 degrees today, and not a cloud in the sky. Tonight it is actually a bit chilly, especially for June. We had a really nice weekend. It was supposed to rain all weekend, but it ended up being beautiful. I went Saturday with Jeff's Mom to a ladies luncheon at a bed and breakfast in our area. The luncheon was with 20 ladies from our church, and I had such a great time. We had scones and bread with the delicious lemon sauce, and tea. The people at the bed and breakfast had this water that was so refreshing. They took a carafe and filled it with water, a chunk of English cucumber, a few slices of lemons, a few slices of oranges, and a sprig of cilantro. They put it in the fridge overnight and then served it. It was so good! I am going to have to try that. The food was so good. We had salad with edible flowers in it, strawberries, and sliced almonds. We also had little sandwiches. They brought out egg salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, and orange marmalade sandwiches. I made a mental note of how the sandwiches were made. I thought it would be fun for Evie and I to have a tea like that with little sandwiches. After the sandwiches came the desserts. Oh my, they were so good. By the time we got done, you practically had to roll me out of there! We had a wonderful time of fellowship, and we were able to get to know a lot more ladies from church.

The food sounds delicious Jen! I love little girly things like this. The water sounds neat too.

Oh my, that water has me intrigued; I learn so much online! I'm going to definately try that - maybe this weekend.

I hope you and Evie have a tea like that; I'm sure you would both enjoy it. You'll have to take pictures of your sandwiches and post the recipes though - lol... :)

Oh - a question about the water: Was it a carafe per person? Just wondering about proportions! Thanks, Jen. :)

Hi April. The carafe was about quart size, so enough for several people at once. It was glass. I am going to try it soon! I have cilantro growing in my garden :).
