We are having a tea party here today! Last summer Donsuemor asked if I would be part of their “Dessert A Day” campaign. I created these Pumpkin Cake Balls using their Madeleines. Well this time, Donsuemor wants to recognize Tea Time!
I had to laugh when I received the email from Nicole. For the last few years my dad has to have tea time multiple times a day. It is on such a schedule that when they are visiting, even my 7 year old knows that Grandpa has to take a break at 3:00 for tea time. There are even special tea time snacks at my parents house. I think I am going to have to send them a box of Madeleines! My dad was actually born in England (where tea time is a huge part of the day), but he moved away from there when he was 2. We had tea growing up at my house, but it was few and far between.
I decided that one day after school my son and I would have a tea party. I set out a plate with the Madeleines, and made each of us a cup of tea. For kids (as I learned from my English relatives), you start with 1/2 milk, 1/2 tea, and a little bit of sugar. Then as they get older you decrease the amount of milk, and eliminate the sugar.
This was a fun little party for my son and I. He liked to dip his Madeleine in his tea. It is a cookie after all, so why not? I hope you will take a little time out of your day and enjoy the simple parts of life. And it never heard to have yummy Madeleines to go along with it
Donsuemor is a great company that has great products. Visit their site, to get your very own box of Madeleines (they have a great variety of flavors), shipped right to your door. You can follow them on Twitter and Facebook as well, so you don’t miss out!
