TEATIME!

As I was near to dead from starving a parcel came over the channel. It came from King Henry and his Moggie-oyal household
IMG_0284
The King spoke: Let them eat cake, when they have no bread… na, he didn’t because he isn’t a copy-cat…. so, he spoke: Let him eat SCONES when he has no kibble.

And so I found an OGGY baking mix in the parcel and a  hangman’s noose to exact vengeance rope toy.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND HAIL TO THE KING!


I decided to celebrate an AFTERNOON TEA in proper british style. I have some experience  how to celebrate an Afternoon Tea, because I was born directly on the border to the United Kingdom and when I looked over the channel I saw the people of Cornwall. Therefore we will celebrate the CORNISH STYLE, that’s called CORNISH CREAM TEA. We planned an afternoon tea in my back yard, butt the cold wind would blow away the cucumbers from the sandwiches, so we changed the location…
IMG_0364
First you have to consider the dress code:
IMG_0381

British gentlemen are wellknown for their unobtrusive elegance, so I think, this one will make it.

Then I had to ponder about the Clotted Cream what’s a must for a cornish afternoon tea. At this point many thanks to the Moggies, Fozziemum and Molly the Wally. Molly, my dad is happy that he will be spared from the Pimm’s Cup N°1, he made a bad experience once :o)

We decided to replace the clotted cream with Mascarpone, that’s not the same, butt it has nearly the same calories: 87k per tea spoon :o)
IMG_0362
First we prepared my scones…  you have a screw loose, Mom, we only use the half package, my arse!
IMG_0365
Then we prepared the biped scones…. what there is  dirt from my paws in the bowl, it’s just for you, so put a sock on it…
IMG_0366
While we burnt the scones in the oven, we prepared the cucumber sandwiches. They are a must, Molly said, that’s LAW no afternoon tea without cucumber sandwiches. It’s important to remove the crust, otherwise you are an OIK, said google.
IMG_0374
Now we normally would need a whatnot with 3 shelves, where we place the sandwiches on the bottom, the scones in the middle and some sweet things on the top. We have just a whatnot with one shelf, so we have to wing that.
IMG_0367
If the scones are black and it smells like a knackery are light-golden-brown you can remove it, but cover your paws with asbest gloves before.
IMG_0368
If the scones are cooled down you can cut them in the middle, smear some of that Mascarpone on it and throw a splash of strawberry jam on the top. We only have a diet-jam what makes us running, so we placed some strawberries on the Mascarpone, that’s ok, too.
IMG_0373
Now to the sweet things, we picked Macarons, they are easy-peasy to make: open your freezer and let it thaw…

The drinkables are easy to prepare, you need only a good Assam-Tea what you can spice up with cream or lemon juice and brown rock sugar or stevia… I will get my own drink, I only drink tea when I have headaches in my stomachs…

 IMG_0377
That shouldn’t happen, butt it wasn’t me….yes, it landed on your paw, Mom, I know, butt from chipping come chips.
IMG_0378
Ha! wait… we forgot the most important thing for an afternoon tea: BOOZE! The proper style is to make a Pimm’s N° 1 cup, but we haven’t Pimm’s in our stores and there is nothing on the whole slice earth to replace it.  Molly said, it’s allowed to get plastered with Champagne too. So we placed  a bottle in the freezer what the staff will pump in their stomachs later. That’s being said, never mix Champagne with any additives, no Cassis, no Hugo, no Aperol. Because there is a ghost in every bottle, who comes loose when you open it. You can smell it when you open a bottle, it smells like the  dry heat in the Champagne where the grapes become ripe in the sun and like the barrels where the grape juice waits till he becomes wine and like the feet of the people who trampled down the grapes in a bucket… And when you mess up this artwork of nature and chemical reactions, the ghost will slap you with his hammer on your head by night. You will have a thick head the next day and that’s the reason they call it “to get hammered”… just saying.
IMG_0382

So now lets throw the foodables on the whatnot, behead the bottle and prepare the tea… I’m hungry…

  1. That looks like a grand Tea! The Biks look delish, and the human food doesn’t look bad either. Hope you guys had a great time, and no-one got poisoned (sorry Easy-Mom).

  2. Mental Mama says:

    Looks like an awesome party! We just made blackberry muffins, which are not as good as scones, but totally count as baking. 😉

  3. Brian says:

    You sure know how to throw a tea pawty Easy!

  4. That bow tie is the best yet! So, after blowing all your diets, back to mud sandwhiches?

  5. What a fantastic tea party. I love it. Gman wishes he was chowing down on all the goods vs running a test…ok more like mom was wishing she could chow down maybe she will drown her sorrows in your booze or maybe she should be optimistic and drink a cheer after his pass??? You do everything with such style. I came across the pond once a few years ago and ate cucumber sandwiches which were Delish. Have a great sat.

    • it’s sadly not possible to drown the sorrows, that guys can swim like fishies :o) I know you will have a reason to celebrate after Gamblers pass :o) maybe with some bubble water too? the cucumber sandwiches were great, either it was because we skipped our lunch or they are really good :o)

    Oh my dogs Easy
    Here I sit w mom watching my weight and no one watching hers. Save me a scone SIME Assam and keep a light on I will be there on the next red eye.

    So very happy you got to get some foodables to quiet your noisy stomach. And the UK would be a fool to not let you be apart of them. As for me dear brother I am afraid I am very very very ill. In an hour I will be in the hospital. MOM does not know what is wrong but I have never seen her so worried and I got to tell you I don’t think I have ever felt so bad. Maybe some scones would help me, except I do not want to eat ANYTHING. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers brother.
    Blessings
    Goose

    • Oh no brother! I hope the vet will find the reason and he will help you. You are in my thoughts, of course and I will cross my paws as hard as I can. Please get well soon brother, I will bake you a truckload of scones with my own paws when it helps you to feel better.

  8. Very envious of the bow tie – perfectly unobtrusive and extremely stylish 🙂

  9. What a party, E. Your family sure knows how to blow it out!

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  10. Bravo Easy that was a magnificent spread. No worries pop over after you finished for a passport, free housing, benefits galore and dad can have incapacity benefit too to cover him for any further accidents. It is all free to all but those who live here LOL. Now we are off to find something to eat as it made us damn hungry. Enjoy my friend. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • Oh Molly, I can’t wait to get my big house and a fat car, just with the steering wheel on the wrong side and all that good stuff for free :o)
      Imagine then we are neighbors, that would be cool! oh and you are invited everyday for tea!

  11. fozziemum says:

    Outstanding tea Easy 🙂 and with the scones and Strawberries you can hit Wimbledon maybe 🙂 just take the macarons from the freezer…wish I knew that before the great macaron trials of 2013…tricky little toads to make….grrrr…and yum I love cucumber sandwiches or as we crassly call them down under cucumber sangas..Rule Britannia Easy and glad the marscapone was a good substitute 🙂 hugs and loves Fozziemum xxxx Pee Ess we send your friend Goose all our love and hope the problem is an easily resolved one xxxx

    • Macarons are our fate. I nailed it whenever I tried to make them, so I better buy them in store :o) The Mascarpone is made in hell, I’m sure the small bucket has 1100 calories… bye ole jeans :o)

      • fozziemum says:

        Hahaahahahh I was on a macaron mission until I got it right….can’t bear the thought that a few eggwhite a bit if sugar and some flour would be my undoing !! I do a great soufflé but these things really tested my patience bwahaahaah and yes the mascarpone is a real dieter’s nightmare..but whn looking for a substitute or Clotted cream it was the stand in dude 😉 went jean shopping today…..like stabbing myself in the eye with a hot poker.arghhhh..

      • oh jean shopping is a torture. I buy them only online, I haven’t found a fitting room by now where I can put them on lying :o) and they probably would not be happy when I try to close the zipper with a pliers hahaha

      • fozziemum says:

        Hahahaahah I hate those change rooms…they smell like desperation hope and ultimate humilitation…speaking of which that crazy Sylvester Stallone is on late night tv here in Daylight…..I say drown already..hahahhaahah 🙂

  12. speedyrabbit says:

    Hehehe looks very yummy Easy,Mum said if you can’t get clotted cream,Mum said get double cream also known as heavy cream and whipp it up till it gets thick,and that is as close to clotted cream you can get,xx Speedy

  13. Emmadog says:

    Reminds me of my first 9 weeks of life in the UK. Wonder if my dog parents still have such scone and tea parties???

    • I bet they have… or they are on a diet lol But I like afternoon tea it’s great to spend the time till supper. Next time we will pick a “teatime light” otherwise mom’s ole jean will be history for ever :O)

  14. Easy that was one beautiful true-Brit tea!! Scones with fresh strawberries and mascarpone….Mom said that they looked “nommy” (cat talk for delish)…..and I think your favorite snack was tearing that rope toy to bits (did you put mascarpone on that or did you just eat it au natural???). Nice that you had a tie to go with the whole thing. You all truly did tea time like nobody else could!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • thanks :o) I ate the rope raw, I’ve heard that’s healthy :o)
      The scones were stones, but the mascarpone and the strawberries were really tasty. Bet now mom needs a crane to come in her ole jean :o)

      • HA! Your Dad sure tried to HELP her get into those jeans…gotta give him credit for that – my Dad would have thrown his back out trying to do that with MY Mom even WITH a crane….HAHAHA

        Hugs, sammy

  15. Kuruk says:

    What a pawesome tea pawty! Wooooooowooooooooo!

  16. Kyla says:

    Might that be King Henry IX? There you go again, using French Champagne. My peeps say the imported stuff is better. Ditch the French swill and get the best Norwegian champagne money can buy.

  17. fernerose says:

    Being on a diet sucks!!! You are doing good with yours Easy!!

  18. What a fun time you had with the pawrents. Those are some mighty fine scones for woofies

  22. merbear74 says:

    I really love this blog. ❤ :o)

  23. Great job Easy. The bow tie was a nice touch. Now as for scones, my predecessor Hamish the Westie had form on that particular foodstuff. See: http://bouncingbertie.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/a-re-enactment-of-hamishs-finest-hour.html
    Toodle pip!

  26. Oh, this looks delish! I like how you snuck in the French macarons and champagne ;-0 And I learned something new about ghosts in the bottle!

  27. pawedblog says:

    Oh what fun Easy! Thanks for teaching me the origins of ‘getting hammered’ too… one never knew!
