Just Plain Pooped!

Yep..... we're taking a break. We've got to do that now & then... you all understand! We had a tea party today.... and that just zaps us for sure!

It takes Karrie a good day to set up tables, figure out which linens to use.... what dishes to put together, and don't forget the extras... the napkins, menus & such!

The night before the tea, I start cooking everything for the meal. Something fun for the hubby & me to do!

The day of the tea we make sure that everything is in place, then get the scones made... along with the Devonshire cream. Have you ever had Devonshire cream before? It's the most wonderful condiment a scone could ever have! It is hard finding this delicious cream, so we make our own "Mock Devonshire" Many people want this recipe... so we thought we'd share it with you all....

Mock Devonshire Cream

1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
3 tablespoons Powdered Sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions: In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in sour cream and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add whipping cream. Beat on medium speed until combined; beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 3-1/4 cups.

While we take a little break.... we thought you might like to sit down to a spot of tea with us - of course with a scone piled high with your own Devonshire Cream.....Enjoy.....because it looks like the party is over for looks like we have a lot of dishes to do....Fancy THAT!

LOVE the table! Dishes are a weakness of mine. One of these days I'll talk my mom into giving me her Spode Blue Bird set that I grew up eating off of.
