πŸ’Tea Pretty πŸ’

My sister gave this lovely lunch and tea set to my mom for her birthday in March, I love it and had to post a photo 😊

 I adore Apple Pie πŸ’š and love marking it because it is truly one of the easiest pies to make, even better if you use ready made refrigerated pie crusts.  Easy, easy easy to make for company and needless to say it is wonderful with a cup of tea. 😍

  •  God Bless !

The Great Wall of China at Skippers Canteen πŸ’–
On Mothers day we went to Disney World with my mom and step dad. πŸ˜€ We had lunch at Skippers Canteen.  In the Canteen they have a wall that they call " The Great Wall of China" πŸ˜„ it is a wall of "china"  How adorable! I snapped a photo of Tony in front of the "Great Wall" 😊

 This lovely set behind the glass was so so so pretty. 
It was a little hard to take the photos because I kept picking up reflections off the glass. I would of loved to have been able to hold this set. 😍

 My dear mom πŸ’•

My mother's favorite China is the Prince Albert pattern, they had a beautiful set on display at the Canteen. I love the butter dish, I had not seen the butter dish in this pattern before
Words of truth from the Word 

John 3:11a

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but was is good.
Anyone who does what is good is from God.

πŸ’œMy sister set the sweetest tea table this weekend for usπŸ’œ

 It's always a treat to have a cup on tea my sister. She keeps two tea cups with purple flowers on them in her china hutch and these are our special tea cups to use together.πŸ’œ

This weekend was extra special because my Great Niece was visiting too. I don't think cookies and tea ever tasted so good. πŸ’œ My niece had a special tea cup too that my sister has from Canada, it has a lovely kilt design.

 Fresh flowers always adorn my sister's dinning table, no matter the time of year πŸ’œ Her table always looks so pretty.
My lovely Sister and my precious Great Niece

The book of Psalm is one of my most favorites books in the Bible. I wanted to share this passage because it always encourages me.

Psalm 9:1-2 ,7 -11

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;

    I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

I will be glad and rejoice in you;
    I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
The Lord reigns forever;

    he has established his throne for judgment.

He rules the world in righteousness
    and judges the peoples with equity.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
Sing the praises of the Lord, enthroned in Zion;

    proclaim among the nations what he has done.

           All Bran Banana Nut Bread 
I will be visiting my sister this weekend she moved into a new house and I am making her some Banana Nut Bread πŸ’œ
The recipe is from that back of an All Bran cereal box 😊
I really love this recipe.  One thing I did substitute though was applesauce for the butter. This is my third time making the recipe and each time I have substituted the butter with applesauce. It usually works πŸ˜€

I didn't have walnuts, only pecans... I didn't want to chance it, so I left out the nuts.
I was looking for a cute baking dish to bake the bread in and I found this set at Tuesday Mornings, I was so happy to find it in blue and white because my sisters dishes are the same shade of blue. When I got home and washed them I noticed the large one had a chip in the corner πŸ˜₯
I made a second loaf for my mother in law Cindy 😘. 
I think next time I will I will not leave out the nuts, the bread was not the same without the nuts. These loaves were not my favorite. If you follow the recipe on the cereal box it comes out great πŸ˜ƒ

πŸ’›Peanut Butter Cookies have to be some of the Best Cookies to have with a hot cup of tea. πŸ’›
Recently my mom has been having some health issues, she found  cutting gluten from her diet really helps her feel better.
I found this Wonderful Peanut Butter Cookie recipe in a gluten free cookbook that my mom had given to me and I have to say the cookies are just as yummy as regular Peanut Butter Cookies 

Sweet verse for today and every day πŸ’›

Nehemiah 8:10

10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
