So last October, every Wednesday, I have been a part of a Tea Party/Bible Study/Book Club. We started on The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis, and when we finished moved on to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This is different from my book club and the Book Club Picks I have been reviewing (and desperately need to catch up on).
One thing I will be doing differently here than in my earlier posts, will be sharing discussion questions that your group can discuss as you read and eat. I didn’t post discussion questions in the previous posts on The Magician’s Nephew, as I wasn’t in charge of that book. For discussion questions, click on this link.
So this book made choosing the recipes extremely easy as they have several meals. For our first tea, we were inspired by what Lucy and Mr. Tumnus have together.
“Meanwhile,” said Mr. Tumnus, “it is winter in Narnia, and has been for ever so long, and we shall both catch cold if we stand here talking in the snow. Daughter of Eve from the far land of Spare Oom where eternal summer reigns around the bright city of War Drobe, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?”…
Now, Daughter of Eve!” said the Faun. And really it was a wonderful tea. There was a nice brown egg, lightly boiled, for each of them, and then sardines on toast, and then buttered toast, and then toast with honey, and then a sugar-topped cake. And when Lucy was tired of eating the Faun began to talk.
The first week we had Chami Teas Winter Grey: Deviled Eggs (for brown egg lightly boiled); Salmon, Cucumber, and Radish Canapés (in place of sardines on toast); Bagels (buttered toast), Honey French Toast (for toast with honey); and a Bear Claw Coffee Cake (for sugar topped cake).
This recipe comes from Farm Flavor.
- 2 Eggs, well beaten
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ cup Honey
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 6-8 slices Bread
- butter, for frying
- Combine eggs, milk, honey, and salt.
- Dip bread slices into honey mixture.
- Melt butter in a large skillet. Fry in butter over medium heat until golden brown, turning once.
These were delicious and a great addition to any tea party. I don’t really like honey, but I really enjoyed these.

This is wonderful. I’ll take a look at your discussion questions. I do think your menu choices sound a little more delicious than those mentioned in the book, but I am glad they have some relationship to them.
Thanks 😊 We tried hard.
