May Tea Time

Hello everyone,
It's been awhile since I've posted.
Life is happening, and I've been busy
with family and enjoying my leisure time in my Spring garden.

May is a beautiful month in our garden. I wanted to share a cup and saucer
I received from my son and his family for my 75th birthday a couple of years ago.
I love the saying on the saucer. 
Mothers are a rose...
...in the garden of life
I captured my Graham Thomas and Iceberg Roses in a birdcage.
The deep yellow and fluffy blooms are my favorite.

Mother's Day in May was a special day this year. I enjoyed 
going out to breakfast with my daughters and granddaughters,
and shopping the rest of the day for vacation clothes.
I am so blessed to have a beautiful garden to photograph for
the 2019 Tea Time calender I enjoy giving to my family and
friends each year at Christmas. 
Thank you so much for visiting me and hope you enjoyed 
May Tea Time.
Joyously, 
Betty

Brioche Loaves

 Hello everyone,
I have a new hobby lately. I am planning a trip
to Paris, next month and I have been studying
the French language and learning about French cooking.
 I love bread...And I am sure you'll agree that Brioche is pretty popular in
France. I decided to bake two loaves from BAREFOOT IN PARIS
Cookbook. I have made bread for years, and the recipe
directions were clear, and the Brioche was delicious.
Yes, the bread is all gone. Sorry! 
 
 I am excited to taste the Brioche in Paris. Since I made
this bread, I have found two other recipes of Brioche
I would like to try. I do love the egg wash on the top
of the loaves. The bread glistens in the photos.

 I sliced the bread thin and made grilled swiss cheese
sandwiches accompanied with lobster bisque soup and
tossed a green salad.  
 Sunday night is soup and sandwich night.
 Life gets busy with family and an ailing husband. 
I have invited my granddaughters and daughter to
travel with me since I will be having my 77th birthday
next month. I know we will be experiencing new food
and new sights. 
 And making memories.
Thank you for visiting
and I will be back soon
with a Tea Time Tablescape.
Joyously, 
Betty
