Simple Tea on Thursday

A friend from out of town

and I had a simple* tea.

Main course: bakery bread with

sliced zucchini, red pepper, avocado and a soft goat cheese.

This was baked in the toaster oven for about 5-7 minutes.

Second layer of tea: strawberries and green grapes.

Third layer: circle shaped biscuits from Italy

and heart cookies from France

(a brand that I was surprised/sad to see that Kraft took over)

Water with first two layers

a fruit tea with the cookies.

I was really pleased with the biscuits as they only a

few ingredients and were very subtle,

not overly sweet which was exactly what I had hoped for.

My friend told me that in Chinese the heart

shaped cookies are called

butterfly cookies;

they are lovely, light and with a sweetness

that is just right... the taste of sugar

without being overwhelming.

*simple tea as opposed to high tea that involves

scones, clotted cream, little sandwiches and cookies
