I LOVE Tea Parties!

Yesterday, I had two dear girlfriends over for tea. I didn't have time to go to the store, so scrambled around the kitchen to see what I could serve. I made three types of tea sandwiches:

olive - I just spread some olive tapenade from trader joe's onto whole grain bread
cucumber and cream cheese - cream cheese on either side, cucumber in the middle
egg salad - hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, tsp of dijon, pinch of salt and pepper

I filled in with:
blueberry muffin mix - I always keep easy mixes around for an emergency
nectarines and bananas
carrots and hummus

You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a nice tea party. If you go to a tea house, you can except to pay upwards of $25 a person. I hosted this tea for less than $10. The key is not to buy a lot of ingredients that you wouldn't otherwise use and try to incorporate items that you already have on hand.
