May Lunch Tea at Greentree Tea Room

Mary and I had lunch tea at Greentree Tea Room in Lexington on Wednesday.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that Greentree changes their menu monthly.
They are open February - December each year.
For several years, Mary and I have said we would have lunch tea there monthly
so that we could enjoy the entire year of menu selections. 
Several conflicts have prevented us from following through with that plan.
Thus far this year, we have managed to visit one time each month, February - May.
The summer may be a challenge, but we will try our best to
continue visiting each month through 2012. 

The May Menu:
Strawberry Soup 
Cream Scone served with Fayette Cream and Lemon Curd
Asparagus Crepe
with Mornay Sauce
Tea Sandwiches:
Greentree Classic Vegetable Cream Cheese
Cucumber Dill
Warm Shrimp with Melted Cheese

Desserts Included:
Chocolate Pots de Creme
Greentree Filled French Wafers
Coconut Cupcakes
Spring Blend
As you can imagine, Mary and I talked non-stop over this tea table,
and enjoyed many cups of tea.

This looks absolutely perfect. Chris goes to Cincinnati almost once a week, and we've GOTTA go there soon.

And conversation---well, we're non-stop no matter WHERE we are.

Oh, that strawberry soup!

Yum! Sure wish there were a local tea room where I could go with a friend each month!

How wonderful to celebrate each month with a friend and tea. They certainly put out a beautiful tea. The scone looks delicious with alot of cream and curd too.
