Pennsylvania Dutch?

Many thanks to Betty Cindy for sending us these yummy pictures and a sneak peek at the fun they had!

Here they are - or we are. :)

The RDD supervises.

Bettys Cindy, Magdalen and JoDee!

Is that honorary Betty Hazel on the left?

Bettys chatting.
The groaning board.


The food was incredible. Egg salad finger sandwiches, divine chicken salad finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream (two kinds!) lemon curd, pineapple butter, raspberry jam, Gouda cheese, mince tarts, cherry almond cake, light buttery cookies - which were UNBELIEVABLY GOOD! - Andes mint brownies, banana bread, fresh lemonade and of course, tea.

And the ladies were kind enough to accept my messy kitchen and dining room table - I'd been fussing with food all morning and by the time I got dressed and got things put out in the living room my legs just gave out. And Betty JoDee arrived. And, speaking of kind, they filled my plate and cup and glass and kept me in goodies throughout. Lovely people!

The Founding Bettys, btw, were much on our minds - we mentioned time again what a monumental task you set for yourselves, and how thankful we are to have found your blogs. And we also praised Betty Keira's wicked gift with graphics! :)


p.s. Oh - and I forgot to mention that this wee tea party lasted over six (SIX!!) hours. WHAT FUN!

I was sad to see them go.
