It took me a while, but I finally fell for the royal wedding hype. There was just something about the history and tradition behind it all. I absolutely loved that wedding dress! Isn't she beautiful?!? I think I selfishly got into the wedding because it gave me an excuse to make tea sandwiches for my co-workers and use my new Sophie Conran footed cake plate. I looove white Sophie Conran and can't wait to build my collection. I made 4 different kinds of sandwiches, alternating between fresh white bread and pumpernickel.
One sandwich had a pimento cheese spread which I embellished with a square-cut radish and a small green olive.
I never imagined sot cream cheese, cucumber and mint would make such a lovely combination. I might salt the cucumber next time.
My friend Mary said her favorite was garlic herb cheese, cucumber, and watercress...delicious! When I peeled the English cucumber I ended up with these great green ribbons so I threaded them on a toothpick to dress things up.
This was my favorite! Smoked salmon spread with chives. And I couldn't let these great chive-tops go to waste! Lovely.
These were so yummy and a perfect tough for our ladies-only wedding tea party.
