Springtime...It really is around the corner.

Believe it!  It's happens every year.  The snow melts, the temps start staying above freezing and I get the urge to dig my hands in the dirt.  I love gardening, as much as I love to cook.  But there's something about the entire process...planting a tiny seed and waiting and watching for it to sprout.  Nurturing that sprout to a full blown plant...and then then one morning, to find blooms.  And since I'm a 'detail' type of person, I will look inside the bloom to watch for the fruit!!  Well, it's still too soon to plant seeds, but the snow has melted!  Whew!  Didn't think we would ever thaw out.  I think of the tea room as a, a big seed.  It sprouted, and got off to a great start, and now it's growing.  The bloom is about to appear...

Catering, Girls Night Out, at Zona Rosa

Miniature Caesar salads, Spud bird's nests, Spring Spinach Mini Quiche, Zesty Cucumber Sandwiches, and for your sweet tooth,  Pecan Melt-Aways.  Can you say, Spring?  Yes!!
The goods were delivered to Vintage Market, in Zona Rosa by 5pm. and it was already packed!  Well, if you know me, then you know that, within 15min. I purchased a Stinking hot top and capris from 'Chic Boutique'!! Can't wait to wear it.   Meanwhile, I watched people as they sampled the Tea Room Fares.   
The comments were...well, can you guess!  Gotta tell ya, was all good.  All this, after the hectic day in the Tea Room.  We had a full house all afternoon, and was sorry to turn away so many people.  A thumbs up today to my staff, Cristie in the kitchen and Carol taking care of customers.   All in all...a hectic, fun day!  But, do you think I'd have it any other way?
