Ok, I know, I'm not British. But it sure seems like everyone on this side of the pond is really polarized about the upcoming British nuptials.. Me? I don't care a whit, everyone is trying to play this that she's a commoner and all.....PLEASE! I'm a commoner, she is not a commoner. She may not hold a title but she's got lots of money in the family. Enough to get her into a very prestigious university so she could hang out with the Prince!
I don't dislike the British. I happen to know a couple that are simply charming and very polite. I have hosted a couple at my home. I just don't care about the wedding. What I do like is tea!
That's right, I love a cuppa! I have a hot tea almost every afternoon with a couple of my new favorite cookies. Now normally, I make my own, but I do have a couple of favorite store bought ones that I squirrel away from the family. I love those little butter cookies, I love Pepperidge Farms dark chocolate milano cookies and my my new favorite cookie is from Nabisco. They are the new Newton Fruit Thins..the cranberry citrus goes so well with a cup of Earl Grey or Constant Comment tea. They have a chocolate version but I haven't tried them yet!
I love to take a few minutes in the afternoon and sit and enjoy a cup of hot tea and a cookie. I don't eat the entire bag, just one. It just takes about ten minutes to turn a hard afternoon into a little more enjoyable one with a cup of tea and a cookie. I can see why the British love their afternoon tea........not so much their royal weddings!
