Tea with our local Matuska and lovely ladies

After a Lenten hiatus we had another
tea and stitch with our local Matuska,
where we enjoy tea, goodies, knitting and conversation.

I hosted it again this time
and had such fun getting it all together! 

For the savory part of the tea,
I made the chicken salad that I just love,
recipe here.

I put out Trader Joe's chocolates,
Butter Cookies we had in a lovely tin, 
three pots of tea
(a citrus black from Paris done by Russians, 

Lovely ButterHorn pastries were brought 
by our Matuska, some no bake chocolate cheesecake
bars were delicious but I failed to photograph them... 

And the raspberry lemon cake made it's first

It was a very enjoyable time!!! 
I am so thankful for the community that I am
finding here and each person is a delight to me
and a joy to host. 
We are hoping to do more teas in mid-to late summer!
