Tea With Melissa

 I visited Melissa and family for a few days last week. 
We took a little time for gluten free lunch/tea at Yesterday's Tea Room
in Florence.  This is one of our favorite activities when
I'm in Northern Kentucky. 
 Susan, the owner of Yesterday's is very well educated in tea. 
In addition to the tea room, there is a boutique, a children's tea party room, 
 a small cafe' to dine in or take away (British for "to-go") a variety of fresh-baked
scones, muffins, cakes, salads, soup, sandwiches, and of course a variety of teas.

 We enjoyed a full afternoon tea with the featured iced tea
(green tea lemonade)
 and, a featured pot of tea, Mango Green.
Both were delicious.  
Our lunch/afternoon tea began with a cup of yummy sweet potato soup. 
Next was the main course, 1/2 chicken salad sandwich on fresh baked GF bread, 
Cucumber tea sandwich on GF white bread,
Apple and cinnamon cream cheese tea sandwich on GF raisin bread
Green salad with mandarin oranges and a homemade dressing
Marinated slaw
For dessert we had a delightful warm GF caramel bread pudding.
 We were so hungry and busy talking I forgot to 
take photos until everything was half-eaten.  
Austin was in Nashville on a school trip, and Glenn was busy with 
several evening meetings. It was a great opportunity for me 
to visit and shop with Daughter #1 and family for a few days.
