Royal Albert birthday month collection.
A generous gift given to me by my
dear friend and co-worker ~ Lisa.
She knew that I love teacups and that my favorite
color is purple - a perfect match - a perfect cup.
This is a vintage treasure ~ the month of February
is depicted on the bottom of the cup.
The modern version has it written on the inside!
My mom's birthday is in February and I bought
her the newer cup for her special day a couple of years ago.
Now we have matches so of course every time I see this
exquisite teacup I think of my gracious friend and my mom!
A new tea that I found in Vermont ~
Chocolate Mint Oolong Tea by Stash
....so luxurious....so luscious....mmmmmm
Decadent Chocolate Mint Brownie Wedges
the quintessential pairing with my new tea!
Remember I shared that baking is an art in Vermont?
This is another example of pure bliss made by my friend Tonya.
(the mama of Pie Champion Hannah)
We could not settle for simple wedges of chocolate delights -
we were serving our husbands a romantic dinner and decided
to put it over-the-top with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream,
homemade chocolate ganache and a dollop of freshly whipped
sweet cream........oh my was it yummy!
