Tea Sandwich Saturday Panda Bread, Noritake teacup

I usually don't do Tea Sandwich Saturday with Tea With Friends but just got a recipe that was so cute that I wanted to share it. I belong to a chat group called Afternoon Tea Across America (or ATAA) and Rochelle in SoCal shared this with us

I thought it would be appropriate with Angela's Japanese Potato Salad Sandwiches that she shared today. That is so cute! Amazing how folks can think out these creative ideas. I am amazed. I am not much of a bread maker aside from a bread machine. Our family joke is that all my home made non machine loaves come out looking like chickens! More power to you bread makers!!!

To visit The Bread Experience blog where the recipe and directions are posted click on the photo.

On an oriental theme...this is an antique egg shell porcelain cup and saucer by Noritake, Japan we have at Antiques And Teacups. I love the hand painted elegant netting and restrained design.

Noritake had several reincarnations with hundreds of different marks that you need a book to decipher with very small changes needed to date a piece. This is mark #27 which date the teacup to 1918 through the 1920s. Then the mark changes again. The M is for Morimura. For more info at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photo.

It's mostly sunny today but cold...in the high 30s. But LOVE the sun! The primroses and crocus are up...so spring has begun! My Honey is watching English football (soccer) on the tube, so he's happy. A cup semi so he's a happy camper!

Have a cup of tea with a friend and had a wonderful weekend. Remember our presidents and how they have influenced our country...for good or bad. Thought provoking!
