Left alone with the kids whilst the hubby swanned off to Las Vegas on a stag do what were we supposed to do? Sit around and twiddle our thumbs? Or try and think if fun things to do and places to go? We opted for fun. Sadly the weather wasn’t on our side so we settled for a movie morning, watching Epic which we hadn’t seen before and the obligatory movie snacks.
To make lunch time a little less humdrum I decided to create an afternoon tea at home. Whilst we had this for our lunch the principle is still the same.
Afternoon Tea At Home should be every bit as special as it is when you go somewhere nice. Clearly it is more work but the rewards can still be great. I started with sandwiches. The children chose Cheese, Jam and Ham for their finger sandwiches. Being a bit more adventurous I plumped for Tomato, Mozzarella and Pesto, Ham and Coleslaw and Salmon and Cucumber on a selection of white bread and sunflower and honey loaf.
