A LOT of Eating
Posted on May 22, 2015
Second week of my new style site and I’m back with my second news post! 🙂
And while preparing what to write for this post it occurred to me that a lot of my week revolves around food…and eating!!
On Saturday, my husband & twin girls along with my friend Natasha’s family went to The Grosvenor House Hotel for an absolutely delightful afternoon tea! The Grosvenor House have a special Grover’s Tea for children and our kids had their own special plate of mini cakes, ice cream & fruit salad, accompanied by their choice of drink.
The adults all enjoyed a traditional afternoon tea of finger sandwiches (my favourite was the smoked salmon), delicious buttery scones served with clotted cream and your choice of jam (my favourite was raspberry), mini pastries & cakes (my favourite was a mini lemon meringue on a thin spiced biscuit) and your choice of a cake from the central table (I’m ashamed to admit I couldn’t manage a whole piece, so shared a delicious chocolate fudge cake doorstop slice!)
To accompany the tea we all had a refreshing glass of mango juice filled with tiny (how do they cut them that small?) cubed pieces of mango and pineapple, as well as our own pots of tea.
A lovely touch, was that each child got their own Grover teddy to take home!
Thank you to The Grosvenor House for such a special afternoon! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and left feeling very very full!
Talking of food, this week has also seen a long overdue catch up with a friend over breakfast:
Some exciting recipe development:
And an addition to the family: (my new egg house!)
Thank goodness my Fitbit has been replaced (it had stopped working.)
And I know it’s a terrible thing to say, but I almost didn’t see the point of walking if my steps weren’t being counted! Anyway, now they are, and I am back on it, and my daily aim is to beat my sister’s steps!! 🙂
So I figure I need to do a lot of walking now to burn off all of this eating! Oh and did I mention that this weekend involves two afternoon teas and a sushi night out with friends! Eek!
Lots more to come next week too!
Be back soon
