Melissa's Heart Surgery

The above is a link to daughter Melissa's blog today at
Please read to see what has been happening in our lives while
my series of posts about the special Christmas tea
for Kentucky Living Magazine have been posting. 
Note: I pre-posted the Christmas Tea series
prior to Melissa's surgery, so that I could be
blog-free during the surgery and after. 
The recipes and photos of this special event will continue.

Linda's Brie and Fig Open Faced Tea Sandwich

This is a very easy and tasty open-faced tea sandwich.

Brie and Fig Preserves on French Baguette Slices
1 French Baguette
1 (5 oz. ) Alouette Creme de Brie (no rind)
1 small jar good quality fig preserves (I used Brasswell's)

Slice the baguette thinly, spread with Brie and put approximately 1/4 teaspoon of fig preserves in the middle.  I placed small pieces of canned figs on the preserves for garnish.
I looked for Cranberry Chutney, but didn't find it for this event. 

Note:  For convenience, I purchased a sliced baguette at Panera Bread.
The first time I made these sandwiches for afternoon tea was when Mary and I
traveled to Massillon, Ohio for a gathering of tea friends. 
I needed simple ingredients for a long-distance pot luck tea
and came up with this sandwich.
