Tea Sandwiches

I’ve been trying to cut down on my magazine purchases, but I couldn’t resist the May 2011 issue of Food Network Magazine.  It is priced reasonably ($3.99) and Sam’s Club gives a 30% discount on magazines.

P4292754

As I was thumbing through the magazine, I came across an article titled 50 Tea Sandwiches – Give an old-fashioned favorite a fun new twist.  It included a little pull out recipe booklet.

P4292752 True to its title, there are several favorites (egg salad, chicken salad, cucumber, shrimp, etc.) and some unusual sandwiches.  How about pea-prosciutto, bresaola-artichoke, manchego-quince, pate-sour cherry, lemon berry and many more.

P4292750

There is also a great recipe for jumbo maple-pecan scones and a section called Mix & Match Quick Bread (lovely for a casual tea).

P4292751

The 100 Greatest Cooking Tips (of all time) feature is a handy read and I am already planning to try several recipes starting with the decadent Almost-Famous Cheesecake Pancakes shown on the cover.

Getting back to the subject of sandwiches, this is a pic of my adorable grandbaby enjoying her first ice cream sandwich.
