A delightful afternoon

Last Friday - my mom, Sue Komarek, Tracy and I spent the afternoon at the Phoenician.  If you've never been its a beautiful and spectacular resort in the Phoenix area.  This year we decided to try out the Afternoon Team which is 'award winning' - we had a delightful time!  Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

 Everyone had their own teapot and choice of tea!

 First Course - Finger Sandwiches: Hickory Smoked Salmon, English Cucumber, Egg Salad, Lemon & Thyme Chicken Salad, Asparagus & Garlic Herb Mousse
 Second Course - Scones (forgot to take a picture):  Buttermilk and Cranberry Scones served with Devonshire Cream, Lemon Curd, and Fresh Strawberry Preserves

Third Course - Tea Pastries:  Eclair, Coffee Opera, Scottish Shortbread, Mango Dome, Fruit Tart, Chocolate Bavarois, Sable Breton, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Brandied Cherry Pomponette

It was a WONDERFUL afternoon and we definitely walked away will full tummies! We've decided we need to try Afternoon Tea in Chicago now for a good basis for comparision ;)
