January Tea at Greentree Tea Room, Lexington

Mary and I met for lunch tea at Greentree Tea Room in Lexington today. 
We were so busy chatting and visiting, I forgot to take a photo of the first course,
a delicious Corn Chowder.  
The second course was an Orange Scone with 
Orange Curd and Fayette Cream.
I took two photos to make up for the missed photo of the soup. :-)  
The third course was Quiche Lorraine with a Salad. 
Next, everyone is invited to the buffet table for sandwiches and sweets.
Olive Nut Spread in Celery Sticks,
Chicken Salad on Wheat Bread,
and Carrot Round Tea Sandwiches were the savories. 
The sweets included Italian Cream Cupcakes,
Greentree French Filled Wafers
and Dark Hot Chocolate (again forgot to take a photo).
The tea served today was Winter Blend.
Greentree Tea Room serves Luncheon Tea
Wednesday - Saturday and 3:00 P.M. Saturday

Each year Mary and I set a goal to go to Greentree once
a month for the whole year.
Thus far, we haven't made that goal.
We will try again in 2013.
As of today, we have a good start!

May this be your year for tea here every month! And Orange Curd -- why, I've never heard of it but why not? Sounds delish!
