High Tea the alternative to a barbeque or alfresco supper.
Do you remember High Tea? I do, particularly when I visited my grandparent’s house for the weekend.
High Tea was a grand affair, My Nan really liked cooking and she always put on a great spread for High Tea on a Saturday afternoon.
Now as a family we tend to eat our main meal in the evening so High Tea has been swopped for summer barbeques, and maybe a little alfresco eating on a Saturday evening – weather and all that permitting.
But I think I am going to bring back High Tea as a time-saving alternative to an early evening supper for friends or family.
What a nice alternative for a summer evening. And also there are so many time-saving reasons to do it.
Most stuff can be made earlier. And most stuff can be bought earlier if you want to cheat.
Here are a few really easy ideas for a really easy High Tea.
Some really nice bread, butter and jam.
Cheese – good old cheddar I think personally would be best and depending on personal taste may be a slice of Wiltshire Ham.
Add some cucumber and cherry tomatoes as finger food.
