So every Wednesday, starting in October, I have been a part of a Tea Party/Bible Study/Book Club on The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This is different from my book club and the Book Club Picks I have been reviewing (and desperately need to catch up on). The first week we had Cederberg Tea Company Rooibos + Ginger Tea, Cranberry-Spice Scones with Maple Cream, Tea Time Magazine’s Ham and Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Cucumber-Four Peppercorn Goat Cheese Canapés, Fotina & Pork Puffed Pastry, and Mini Apple Pies.
The second week we had Chami Spice Ginger Plum Tea, Dark Chocolate Ginger Scones, Curried Egg Salad Triple Stacks Sandwiches, Turkey-Apple Tea Sandwiches, Fotina Flower Puffed Pastry, and Lemon Gingerbread Cake.
The third week we had Organic India Tulsi Masala Chai Tea, Parmesan and Chive Scones, Cucumber Aioli Canapés, Ham, Cheddar, and Apple Tea Sandwiches, Cranberry, Brie, and Rosemary Bites, and Mini Pumpkin Crème Brûlée.
And now to the fourth week. This week we had Tiesta Tea Victorian Earl Grey, Lavender and Earl Grey Scones, Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Tomato Hummus Salad, Cranberry Feta Pinwheels, and Triple Berry Salad.
Week five we had NovelTea Tins The Picture of Earl Grey, Haarlem Tea Room’s Cheddar Scones, Eating Well’s Radish Tea Sandwiches, Tea Time Magazine’s Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, Brisket and Slaw Roulades, and Fruit Tarts.
I couldn’t share the recipes in October as I was in the middle of Horrorfst IX, and as I am using a scone and sandwich recipe from before, I’m skipping right to the sandwiches.
This comes from Eating Well although I did make a few substitutions.
- 4 Ounces of Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
- Chopped Fresh Dill for Garnish (They were out of dill so I used chives)
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
- 1/8 Teaspoon of Freshly Ground Pepper
- 12 Thin Small Slices of Pumpernickel or Rye Bread
- 6-8 Medium Radishes
- Mash cream cheese (or goat cheese) pepper in a small bowl until well combined.
- Spread two teaspoons of the mixture on each piece of bread.
- Top each with a few radish slices, a sprig of dill, and a generous grinding of pepper.
These were extremely delicious and healthy.
