Today's tea in the garden is with spicy blondie bars and pumpkin chai tea.
I found this pretty Fall teapot in a thrift store for $3.75. Isn't it perfect for this time of year. I'll show you the other side in another post.
I'm using my Paprika colored Fiesta Ware mug, as it's a pretty, warm color for Fall, and it blends with the colors in my teapot.
I crocheted this pumpkin from directions that I found at Priscilla's. The instructions can be found here. The only thing that I did differently was to chain varying lengths for the leaves. I taught my sister and a niece how to make these adorable pumpkins. It's a great project for learning how to chain and single crochet.
It seems like Target is so good about stocking seasonal food items, like these Pumpkin Spice Morsels. If you can't find them, the blondie bars would be
good with cinnamon, chocolate or butterscotch chips, too. Here's the recipe that was on the back of the bag in case you need to substitute one of the other flavors of chips.
2 1/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 10 ounce package Pumpkin Spice Morsels, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 1/3 cups morsels. Spread into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup morsels.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. Store tightly covered.
Makes 40 bars
