Scottish Breakfast Tea from Taylors of Harrogate seems to clear the fog at breakfast.
With the left over breakfast food, I created this blog-food. Blog food is the food that is used to create pictures for your blog. After it is all over there will be people with their hands out asking, "May I have the blog food today?"
In the photograph are two tea-time treats created with breakfast food. Sliced bananas drizzled with fresh-squeezed orange juice is served in those cute little bowls, and a scone is made into an open-face sandwich with cheddar cheese and bacon.
The reason the cheddar in America is orange is because carrot juice (or carotene) is added to give it color. I have no idea why that is, but I suppose just as the orange carrot was developed in honor of William of Orange, who led the Dutch to independence, carrot juice was added to cheddar cheese for great reason.
The sliced bananas were served in this little bowl, because, aside from my interest in collecting tea cups, I like bowls. I especially like the Corelle brand, and as you can see, it is made in USA. They are light-weight, don't clang in your ear with a terrible noise when stacked, and almost unbreakable, unless you took a sledge hammer to them. These are open-stock, meaning that they can be bought individucally, at Wal-Mart, and are perfect for small servings of soup, salad, sandwiches and fruit.
I enjoyed this recent Cottage publication, and took a photo of one of the inside pages. There are no ads in this magazine and the pages are high quality textured paper, similar to the old "Ideals" books.
Also I browsed an older publication of Victoria from January 1991, below.
It featured a marmalade cake, which had the same colors as the old Victorian house in the snow, in the same issue, pictured below.
There was even a fog-photo inside the January '91 issue.
All weather comes from the Lord, and fog is actually quite interesting. Photographers and artists forever seek to capture its essence, and many a story has been written featuring fog.
Tomorrow I hope to have a tea outside in the fog. The front porch is shrouded in fog, so I will not have far to go.
