Very nice!

It’s fun to look for agates on the shores of Lake Superior.

notottoman, what a horrible thing to mention for me having lived there. Man could I just go for an English Tea right now, lovely scones with sultaners, clotted cream and strawbery or raspbery jam – all washed down with some PG tips (milk and sugar of course) I think I’d be willing to trade that for a router right now.

Thanks for the offer, but what Brit do you know who doesn’t carry his PG Tips, Branston, Daddies sauce, Bisto, Oxo, Frank Cooper Marmalade, Tiptree Jams etc, etc, wherever he goes in the world. I just wished you could get English bacon here or sausages or real bread.
Face it my wife is Born and Bred (easy on the bred) from a small town in texas where the most revered dish is a pot of bloody beans. Each dynasty has their own guarded recipe – but JC, what can you do with beans in water??
We have been to the UK many times, all my relatives are there and as soon as we deplane we head for a place to get a good old English full breakfast. My wife loves the food there ( maybe because it’s free of additives and colurings) and was awestruck when she tasted real break, cheese, bacon etc. We ended up by taking and extra suitcase on our trip to bring back booty.

Now I’m really hungry, I could eat a horse – but that would be French food.

Mark,
Tea making and consumption 101

First of all make sure you have a decent teapot – a Brown Bessy or a Bone China one.
To taste the tea at its premium use Bone China cups and saucers.

Take some English Black tea bags (or other type – but NOT favored) – PG Tips is good as is Typhoo, Yorkshire etc.
Boil some water and when it almost comes to the boil put a little in the teapot, swirl it around and pour out the water in the pot. Put sufficient teabags in the warm pot for the expected number to be serves. Ususally 1 bag per cup is used but that can turn out a litltle strong. When the water boils quickly pour suffient in the teapot, put the lid on the pot and let it steep for 2 or 3 minutes.
Put milk and sugar in a china teacup and pour tea from the teapot. The tea in the teapot should be an orange light brown color, if you want it any stronger then just leave it to steep longer.
When you have finished filling all the “first round” of teacups, pour the remaiing water into the pot for refills.
Your tea in the cup should look like coffee with creamer in it, too light = too much milk or week tea (needs to steep longer) too dark = not enough milk or tea is too strong (add boiling water to pot)

Now find yourself some Rich Tea biscuits (cookies) or Marie biscuits, sit yourself down in an easy chair and enjoy Bliss.
Amazon sells PG tips tea and so do some grocery stores. Mariie or Maria cookies are a good substitute for tea biscuits.
Trust me, tea drunk from bone china cups does matter as it makes the tea smooth.

Any leftover tea in the teapot will make awesome iced tea.

Tune in next week and learn how to properly use eating utencils.

Properly use utensils… Do you use your fork upside down too? Never figured out how anybody does that. I probably do need lessons. LOL

Kaybee,
It is a fork, not a shovel. Yes it takes a certain talent to use the fork properly, some people call it dignified, but use your fork as a shovel by all means, just don’t wag a loaded fork around as a baton, that’s just not done.
Tune in next week for place settings and utensil identification and usage thereof.
What’s that I hear …something about a horse and water??
Have fun

Admittedly , the idea of not using a fork as a shovel would be a novel idea with two busy teenagers. But I shall endeavor teaching them, with your expert guidence. LOL
