Tea Party in Your Cupboard


What do you have in your cupboard, refrigerator, or freezer for afternoon tea?  It goes without saying that there is always tea.  In my cupboard most often you will find a can of chopped black olives which mixed with a bit of mayonnaise makes a nice sandwich filling. Then fish like tuna or trout also can work quite easily doctored up with chopped pickles, veggies, or capers and a bit of mayonnaise.  Cranberry sauce with whole berries makes a nice bite baked with squares of puff pastry in a small muffin pan. Most often you will find a box of special crackers as they go well with cheese or a spread.   A small box of store-bought cookies or even brownie or cake mix usually sits on my shelf. In my refrigerator you often will find some eggs, cream cheese, butter, and mayonnaise. In the freezer there are usually a few home-baked cookies, puff pastry, and bread. Scones in the freezer — either already baked or ready to pop in the oven — are quite convenient.  Then I might forage in the garden or the veggie bin to see what delights can be turned into a delicious, simple sandwich. Veggies can also be cut and served plain with salad dressing dip on the side. Fresh fruit makes for a lovely sweet touch instead of baked goods, too. So what are you finding? Is there a favorite something you like to have in your cupboard?
