Simple Tea Food for Everyday!

Yesterday we had the most fantastic time at our
Tea & Talk at the store!

Several of our guests asked for the recipes,
so we thought that we would share....

Springtime Ham Sandwich with Sun Dried Tomato Aioli

It was the Aioli that stole the show!

Sun Dried Tomato Aioli
2 tablespoons minced sun-dried tomato (packed in oil)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1.4 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a small bowl, combine sun-dried tomato, mayonnaise, lemon juice, 
Parmesan cheese, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper, whisking well.
Store covered in the refrigerator for up to a day.

Spread it on your favorite sandwich ~ here we sliced a Ciabatta Roll 
and put the Aioli spread on it.  We then added some Black Forest Ham 
and some Springtime simple and easy!

Cucumber tea sandwich....
so light and tasty!
We cut the crust off of Pepperidge Farm Sandwich bread.
Spread some Sour Cream & Chive Cream Cheese spread.
Then peel a cucumber and place slices on the cream cheese.  
Cut the extra cucumbers from the bread.  Cut bread in half in triangle shape.  
Sprinkle with black pepper and kosher salt.

We love serving these Antipasti Kebabs!
Cheese cubes, cheese tortellini and tomatoes threaded on a pick.
Then we marinated them in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and fresh thyme.

Even though it was for our tea...these make fantastic sandwiches and sides 
for a delicious lunch as well.....we even packed our husbands 
a sandwich for lunch today...scoring some extra points
{we've got a flea market to go to this weekend ~ lol!!}

Hi Girls!

Your tea food is fabulous! I've got to try your recipes for my next swara (sp)! I sure wish I would have been there for a taste test.

I'm sure your shop is gorgeouso for spring. I hope to be popping in soon to get some hugs and inspiration for spring & summer. (will let you know when it might be)

Love your planted plates... will they be having any little saucers?

Big hugs & blessings! Sherry & Marie
