O'Mara's November Tea

Yesterday, two girlfriends and I attended our monthly Afternoon Tea at O'Mara's Avalon Tea Room. November's theme was, BounTEAful Harvest

~ Menu at Place Setting ~ 

~ Tablescape Decoration~

~ There were 24 attendees which included one brave man! ;-) ~

~ All three at our table ordered Harney & Son's Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea. ~

~ Roasted Root Vegetable and Turkey Sausage Soup ~

~ The stage was all set for Chef Anita's demonstration of Apricot/Chive Chicken Salad.  ~

There were four finger sandwiches per person:  Apricot/Chive Chicken Salad on White Bread; Roast Beef with Caramelized Shallots on Butter Rolls; Fresh Ricotta, Thyme & Oregano topped with Roasted Balsamic Zucchini on toasted Baguette; and Blueberry French Toast on Challah Bread with Goat & Cream Cheese spread and fresh Blueberries.

 ~ The main entree was an Apple, Bacon, Cheddar and Rosemary Quiche.  Yum! ~

The Quiche was followed by Baked Brie glazed with Pomegranate, wrapped in Filo Dough.

Diana, our server, took time to take a picture of the three of us.  L-R: Sandy, Lori and me.

Dessert was a Baked Apple stuffed with Raisins and Walnuts, served with Vanilla Ice Cream, and a Pumpkin Scone.  No one leaves O'Mara's hungry!

We have already made our reservations to return on December 10th for their Christmas Tea. The theme will be A Charles Dickens Christmas Carol.
