Having tea with a friend is one of my favorite things to do. I’ll use any excuse to invite a friend over for tea and bake a batch of goodies. This was truly about my friend Trudy’s adventures this summer and a chance for us to get to know each other a little better.
I had not been to the places she had recently visited. So of course, I was eager to combine my love of tea and travel with her adventures.
She brought some tea from London. It’s not just any ordinary tea. It was a special Royal tea from Prince Harry and Meghan Markel packaged in a beautiful tin with their wedding picture on the front.
We ate biscuits with lemon curd and drank our special royal tea as I listened to Trudy’s travels through London and parts around England. Stories of meeting up with old friends in London and visiting seaside towns and quaint countrysides.
More tea and more biscuits and more travel stories. From London to Prague to Budapest to Rome and not in that order. And did I skip a few countries? We needed more time. There were too many stories and lots of photos. We need a whole day for all the experiences to be told and more tea and biscuits please.
Trudy is a lover of travel and has a blog page travelboomer.com
My love for baking has me experimenting and trying new recipes all the time. I received a bag of lemons from a client recently and they reminded me about the lemon curd I made with lemons they gave me in the past. I was happy they remembered the lemon curd. So I had to make up a batch of my favorite recipe for lemon curd. The recipe calls for Meyer lemons, but I just use whatever type of lemon I have on hand. I love that it’s sweetened with honey. It went well with the GF biscuits, which were light and buttery. A little crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I went a bit overboard with the 2 kinds of muffins. I usually have them on hand for breakfast and it’s packed with protein and no refined sugars. I used recipes that I found on the internet and may have revised some to my liking. I hope you will make some of these recipes especially if you are going gluten-free.
