Last week I went shopping and to afternoon tea with my mommy and future mommy-in-law. I ended up buying 4 tank tops at the consignment shop. I forgot to take pictures of them, but I'll get around to it. I did find out that I could get away with a size 14/16 top, which is super awesome. Of course that's only if I wear the proper pants (I have a pair of black stretchy dress pants that I can pull up nearly to my boobs and it shapes me pretty well since I don't have any shape wear yet). After shopping, we went to afternoon tea at a really cute restaurant called the Hyeholde. Even the building itself was absolutely adorable!

I'd been worried about the food they would serve us because for a fat chick, I'm a really picky eater. See, they don't let you choose what you eat, they just bring you whatever they felt like making that day. So, we get there and sit down and we have a list of at least ten different teas to choose from. Ben's mom picked Earl Grey, my mom had pear caramel and I got green tea tropical. They were delicious. We each got our own little pot of tea and it was adorable. Then, they brought us each our own little plate of assorted goodness. Beware food porn:
|Seafood and sausage soup, crab cake, ginger and cream cheese sandwich triangle, ham salad sandwich triangles, and couscous. YUM!|
We savored each delicious bite and then they brought out desserts.
|Almond and apricot scones and banana bread with clotted cream and raspberry blackberry jam|
|Tiny lemon panna cotta with strawberry rhubarb jelly topping and candied lemon peel garnish.|
|Bottom to top: Pistachio French macarons with pistachio creme filling, mini pineapple upside down cakes, Bailey's cheese cake (to die for!), nut clusters, and on the very far left were bittersweet chocolate and Grand Marnier truffles.|
It's just about time for Ben to get home, so I should probably get started on making dinner. I suppose I'll have to wait to post about Easter for another time...But here's a sneak preview...
|Love my nephew!|
Hope everyone had a great Easter/Passover/Feaster :)
