After we left Cristy's tea last Saturday, we made a stop at World Market. All their stores have closed in my area, and I always enjoy looking at their large selection of varied merchandise. They had a Walker's Shortbread Commemorative tin of the Royal Family for $14.99, and one came home with me.
Coincidentally, on Sunday a couple at church gifted me with a commemorative teacup by Paragon that was made in 1953 for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.
Today was ladies' Bible study at my house. I really haven't decorated much for Easter, but I did put together a small vignette.
After working our way through Genesis 31-35 [studying Leah, Rachel, and Dinah], we had a simple lunch of Tomato Dill Bisque Soup, and Cheesy Herb and Artichoke Chicken Pull Apart Bread. My girlfriend also brought a large bowl of fresh fruit for dessert.
The next time we meet will be after Easter, so I used my new bunny plates purchased at HomeGoods today. This has been the year for bunny dishware. I've seen them at several stores in various patterns.
I served the Lemon Meringue Green Tea that I recently reviewed on my blog from Adagio Teas. The ladies loved it. The Tomato Dill Bisque Soup was a recipe that I got from Magnolia and Ivy when I took their training in 2002.
The Cheesy Herb and Artichoke Chicken Pull Apart Bread is a recipe by Perdue Chicken that I found on the Internet. It's wonderful. The recipe and "how to" video can be seen here. I forgot to take a picture of my loaf of bread, so I'm borrowing from Perdue Chicken.
Do let me know if you try it. I'm certain you'll like it!
