Quote of the Day
September 3rd is the Birth of Anna, Duchess of Bedford, Creator of Afternoon Tea!
Americans don't practice this custom, but in Countries like the U.K. and Australia, it is customary to have Afternoon Tea! A cup of tea and a mini-meal to help you make it to dinner time.
In addition to tea, it is customary to serve cut up small sandwiches, scones with jam or cream, sweet pastries and cakes.
We lived in Australia for four years and this is a custom that I LOVE! Just taking a break from the events of the day, to unwind and relax with a cup of tea, a snack, and perhaps a good book, or the company of a friend!
