A Lovely High Tea

Last Saturday, a day after my deadline, I had a lovely high tea with four of my high school friends at a place called ‘t Feithhuis in my home town. For €15,50 per person we had a nice assortment of baked goods and sandwiches, and man, were we stuffed at the end! It was actually the first time ever I had a high tea in a restaurant like this. I’ve been to high teas at people’s homes before, but this was nice to experience as well! We chatted, laughed and drank lots of tea and it was a great way to end those stressful midterms period. We all had a wonderful time and of course I decided to take some pictures!

We all got our own little (adorable) teapot and I had a delicious lemon tea. I always enjoy lemon tea, but this one had a really intense flavour, which I liked.

A delicious little quiche with mushrooms and egg.

Some sort of cornbread, I think. I’m not really familiar with the American cornbread, but I think this was it. It tasted good!

The classic lemon and poppy seed muffin.

The muffin in the back was so tasty! It had raisins in it and I think some whole wheat stuff.

What is a Dutch high tea without some apple pie?

I still haven’t figured out what the pink thing was, but it tasted quite good! Too bad I was already feeling quite stuffed at this point…!

  1. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Many thanks!

    • Thank you for your compliment, first of all! I don’t mind questions at all, and that’s a very good one…! I find it difficult to give a clear cut answer, though, since I don’t have a specific strategy to clear my mind before writing. It does take me a few minutes as well to get settled and to start writing. And sometimes my mind wanders and I find myself looking at other blogs or checking Facebook instead of writing. I think the most important thing is to have an idea of what you want to write about before you actually sit down to write. In my case that’s mainly writing down a recipe and my story about the recipe or writing down my thought about a book. Just think of what you want to say, maybe jot down a few notes, and, honestely, just take your time. Plus, you’ll get better at it with time! When I’d just started my blog there were times I first stared at my screen for ages before starting to write and then struggled to make a decent post out of it. Practice makes perfect! πŸ™‚ Hope this helped a little bit!
