Hello sweet friends!
Right after we came back from our coastal vacation and had so much dirty clothing, shopping and cleaning around here, I also had to host my last Wednesday of the month Rosary gathering!
Anyway, it turned out lovely as always with the ten ladies and sometimes more. We had a lot of prayers request for sick relatives and friends.
The china I used is my 'Home Gallery' one I have for complete 16 place settings and for several years ago I can't count!
|I bought the long baguette basket you see here with bread buns, at one of the beach towns, where they're so famous for making and weaving baskets and so many other lovely things for the home.|
|I also bought the bread basket in the back.|
|The most delicious home made 'Old Fashioned Fudge Brownies,' ever!. 'The recipe is at the end of this post.'|
|My flowers are in a galvanized flower vase I got as a present with an anniversary arrangement from hubby a few years back.|
|Display of glasses for my friends, as they always require some water after tea.|
|I always change the display in Alejandro's grandparents' English buffet. Previously I had my Easter one; now is replaced with my antique 'Japanese Satsuma' tea set and natural shells from our vacation. It's also on my header.|
Thank you so much for your sweet and kind visits, you know you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
'Old Fashioned Chewy Fudge Brownies'
2 cups sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup butter or margarine
4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans (use walnuts, which I always do)
Combine sugar, flour, and salt in the electric standing beater, or whichever you prefer.
Mix well and leave it there. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave, or double boiler if you rather. Stirring well.
Gradually pour chocolate mixture into flour mix and beat lightly and add eggs one at a time, vanilla and chopped pecans.
Pour batter into greased 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Bake at 325F for 40-45 minutes. Test center to see is if it's dry. Cool. Cut into 8 squares to serve. For tea I always cut in half each square and they look more dainty, plus suddenly you have 16 pieces instead of just 8 big squares!
