So after I trudged the block to the post office to mail out some sold etsy items while the kids played outside with the dogs, I decided soup and sandwiches would be the perfect lunch. And since it was a special day, I pulled out my special soup and sandwich plates-- orphaned plates made to hold a cup (there is a circle indentation) that I pair ceramic cups with. This is when my teacups (or coffee cups back in the day, before mugs) hold soup.
That I also had tea (in separate cups!) goes without saying. I was on my second pot of black by 11:30am. You can't drink too much hot tea on a cold, snowy day!
Just canned chicken noodle soup, not home made, but when you have a pretty service, canned and instant taste just fine!
(PIE=Presentation Is Everything!)
I gave my kids most of the noodles, because I prefer the broth anyway.
This is one of my favorite plates because it is shaped like an artist's palette.
I just have the one like it.
It doesn't get pulled out often, but yesterday was a special day.
My Tea Tuesday posts seem to be more about re-purposing teacups than drinking tea, but hey, I am not a fancy tea drinker. I prefer black tea (with milk and a drop of honey) and how many times do you want to hear "Lipton" or "Twinings" mentioned?
