Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday, green

Welcome to....

the 46th Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday 


May God give you.......

For every storm, a rainbow

For every tear, a smile

For every care, a promise

A blessing in each trial.

For every promise life sends,

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer.

Please pardon my haste this week.  I am a little like the March winds that are blowing through the country side.  This is a quick "how ya do?" and a sip of tea to fortify me as I head back to my bus-y-ness. I know my head will be clearer for taking the time and my soul needs the nourishment of kind friends, such as yourself.

T hank you for your uplifting comments last week.  I am looking forward to catching up with as many of you as I can.  I need a bumper sticker that reads, "I'd rather be having tea and blogging".
I wanted to share a wee bit of green, to celebrate St Patrick's Day, to our tea time this week.  As our house is still on the market, with daily showings, and a good portion of my china packed, including every green teacup, I will use past photos of what I long to set my table with.  The up side to all of this is that my house has never looked so good  for so long.

I welcome you to relax at the tea table as I fetch an Irish concoction from the frig. May all who enter understanding heart, and a listening ear well as a cuppa tea.I  am putting the finishing touches on a post called

"The Sweet Taste of Spring".  Can you guess what that might be?   Do pop back next week and see.

A perfect cup to serve Irish Breakfast Tea, in,
to Saint Patrick.

Ready for tea

May the Lord bless you and keep you; may He make His face [cause his spirit] to shine on you and be gracious to you; may He lift up His countenance [smile] on you and give you peace. —Numbers 6:22-27 (NIV)

The more the fun!

We don't want to miss a single teacup or teapot!

Baileys Creamy Chocolate Pudding

Winter 2001
By: Johanna Burkhard

Quick and easy to prepare, this silky-smooth treat can be made with sweet chocolate or use dark bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate for a more intense chocolate delivery.

¼ cup (50 mL) granulated sugar

¼ cup (50 mL) cornstarch

1 1/3 cups (325 mL) milk

½ cup (125 mL) light or whipping cream

1 egg yolk

1/3 cup (75 mL) Baileys Irish Cream

1 bar (85 g) imported milk chocolate, chopped or 3 squares, 3 oz (90 g), sweet chocolate, chopped.
I would try semi sweet or dark chocolate
Cocoa powder
Grated chocolate or chocolate curls
Whipped cream, optional

1. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Pour in milk and whisk well to dissolve the cornstarch. Whisk in cream and egg yolk. Place over medium heat and cook, whisk constantly, for about 4 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil and thickens.

2. Remove from heat and whisk in Baileys. Add chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth.

3. Pour pudding into four individual ramekins or serving dishes. Let cool slightly, then cover surfaces with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for two hours or until chilled. To serve, sprinkle with cocoa powder and garnish with chocolate. Top with whipped cream, if desired.

Serves 4 happy people

  20. Hello Pam!!
    The history of china factories in Brazil is not that long (a bit more than a century now), but it is very complex and rich.
    I´ve already published a book about it, the secound is on its way, and other than my blog, I have a site on the subject, but as you can imagine, they´re all in portuguese.
    Anyway, the site is mostly pictures, so I think it´s not that hard to browse it´s content, and we can always cry for help to Google Translator:

    Next week, I´ll try to tel a bit of the history of the factory of the cup I choose to share.


  21. Hello Pam, your teacups and plates are so pretty. Such a beautiful tea table!
    Thank you for hosting this party; it's so much fun! I'll try to join more often in the future.

  22. Lovely post and the recipe looks delicious.

  23. That pudding sounds divine! I think I would use dark chocolate, but I'm a dark chocolate kind of girl.

    I'd like to invite you to share this recipe on my linky, Sweet Tooth Friday. I hope to see you there.

  24. Very all the green.

  25. Your tea cups are gorgeous!!

  26. What a pretty St. Patty's tea table you have set. It was that gorgeous teapot that kept stealing the show for me. ;) And oh the temptation of that divinely tempting Bailey's treat!!!

    Thanks for joining me at the cottage party.
