I am always sleepy.
And I am always hungry.
It's time to remedy this with a new tradition/habit.
Tea Food Ideas:
[sandwiches] cucumber & herbed cream cheese. salmon & herbed cream cheese. ham & butter. curried chicken salad. pimento cheese. apples & cheese. avocado & cheese or turkey. tomato & mozzarella or avocado. veggie.
[savories] cheese biscuits. cheese croissants. crackers & spread. veggies & dip. shrimp toasts. meat slices. rice balls with nori. tomato bites.
[sweets] cake minis. pastries. scones with clotted cream & jam. tartlets. fruit & chocolate croissants. muffins.
[easies] toast with butter & jam. crackers & cheese. fruit. cookies.
Inspirational images follow. The internet is FULL of them, and I can't wait to get started.
My plan is afternoon tea every weekday between 3 & 3:30. And on weekends (if we feel like it) at 4.
To save myself time, I will (theoretically) prep most of the week's menu on Sunday nights. Pre-cut breads, toppings, etc. Slice & store fruits and necessary fillers (meat, veggies, etc). Also, make bulk things like chicken salad (have I posted that recipe yet? it's amazing), cucumber cream cheese mix, etc.
Crackers with Herb Spread
Toast with Jam
Dinner Bites (leftovers)
Apples & Cheese
(most likely Cucumber Sandwiches, Cheese & Crackers/Apples, Toast with Jam)
