138.0…Springtime Tea

It’s amazing what happens on the scale when you cut out tons of carbs and wine and eat more vegetables! I’ll have to remember that…. :)

My carb-free quest continued last night at dinner. I broiled some salmon with lemon and butter and paired it with a Caesar salad.

Breakfast was an omelet made with egg beaters, pico de gallo salsa, shredded cheddar cheese and avocado.

After I took the kids to school, I stopped at Starbucks for a green tea.

Then it was time for a cooking class at Great News! Today’s class was entitled “Springtime Tea” and was taught by Phillis Carey. The tea classes are one of my favorites. I am obsessed with little tea sandwiches. The only problem is that I could eat a million of them.

The first recipe we tried was Lemonade Ice Mint Tea.

I’m not really into sweetened drinks but this one wasn’t overly sweet. It would be refreshing on a hot day.

The next plate contained three different tea sandwiches:  Benedictine Cucumber, Dill and Cream Cheese Finger Sandwiches; Coconut Curried Chicken Open-Faced Sandwiches on Pumpernickel; Goat Cheese, Pecan and Hot Pepper Jelly Sandwiches.

I loved all of them. Amazing. The only bad thing I can say about them is that I didn’t get enough of them to eat. :)

The sweet plate consisted of: Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Mini-Muffins with Orange Butter and Blueberry Scones with Blueberry Curd.

Two more winners…especially the muffin! Now when can I make all this stuff!?!

Are you a fan of miniature sized foods?


  1. Your cooking classes sound like so much fun... Not to mention the yummy food! Believe it or not I have yet to find a good cooking class here in Miami.

  2. I love tiny food! My husband thinks I am crazy, but I'd take sliders over burgers any day.

    OMG, pecan and hot pepper jelly sandwiches?? Yes please!

    They are so fun! Hope you find one!
