Lunch with Miz Helen

Pat, Miz Helen & Kitty at the Chocolate Angel
Oh my, what an exciting day it was!  My dear friend Pat,  from Pattycakes Cooking & I had lunch at the Chocolate Angel tearoom with Miz Helen from Miz Helen's Country Cottage

 Several months ago, Pat & I had lunch together & we were discussing who we would love to meet in "Blogland".  We both agreed that Miz Helen would be a perfect choice.  E-mails were written & Miz Helen agreed to come to our area since she also has a daughter who lives nearby.  Her sweet husband drove her into town & dropped her off & our friendship began with food, sharing & of course, talking & blogging.

Miz Helen , as one might expect, turned out to be as nice & sweet as she comes across on her blog.  What a great time we had & we all agreed to do this again.  Of course, we all shared a piece of fudge pie...because that's what friend's do!  Isn't it great how food draws people together??!!

When Miz Helen's husband came to pick her up, we were able to meet him & he said the sweetest thing about her! He called her"my angel". Isn't that the best??!! 

Thanks Miz Helen & Pat for a wonderful day!!

I have been blogging less than a year, but I have noticed that I have so many new friends!  Even though I don't get to "see" you, I am able to "visit" you through your blogs.  I see your lovely homes, your beautiful tablescapes, your vignettes,  your fabulous recipes, your wonderful crafts & projects & your unique personalities & kindness.  Bloggers have very giving, sharing spirits.  I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for visiting me! 

Pat had potato leek soup & chicken salad croissant

Miz Helen had fruit cup with poppyseed dressing, scone, artichoke & sundried tomato quiche & salad
I had chicken salad & strawberry pretzel salad
