Hello and welcome to Tuesday Cuppa Tea. Things are a bit more regulated around here, my husband is stable although incapacitated for the most part, and waiting for a scope test on Monday August 13th which will decide the next course of action, so thought I could do a Tuesday Cuppa Tea. Thanks so much for your patience!
I am sharing a family recipe for peas salad, so I thought...why not a green teacup! I shared this once before a year ago, but it is one of my favorites. The cup and saucer is a bit different, but very pretty....
The green is really a teal green. The teacup was made in Japan in the 1950-1960s, and is unmarked. I love the luster finish with the gold overlay...
The teacup saucer has a reticulated, or pierced rim, and the cut outs are heart shaped...so sweet!
I just love it! For more info on the teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.
As it's summer (finally if you live here in the Pacific Northwest), in fact breaking records here, so I have hauled out one of our family's favorite family recipes that we always have during the summer, and are asked to bring to potlucks.
Pea And Pecan Salad
1 10oz pkg, or 1 1/3 cup of thawed frozen peas
2 cups finely shredded green cabbage
3 green onions thinly sliced including greens
1/2 cup sliced radishes
1/4 cup each, mayonnaise AND sour cream (I use IMO non dairy sour cream)
1 tbs white wine vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard (I never use this, but it was in my grandmother's recipe)
1/4 tsp curry powder (this is just a taste and not overpowering if you don't like curry, and I admit I double or triple this amount)
1 cup roasted pecans...split into 2 sections
In a small bowl, blend mayo, sour cream, vinegar and spices. If made ahead, cover and chill vegetables separately up to 24 hours.
Mix vegetables and dressing and 1/2 of the pecans/ Salt to taste. Serve topped with the reserved pecans.
Makes 6 servings
Enjoy... we certainly do when it's hot!
We are enjoying this Sunburst Green Iced Tea from Mighty Leaf I found at our grocery store. I like Mighty Leaf quality, and this has a lovely orange and lemon nuance to the green tea...very refreshing!
I hope you have a lovely week and stay cool...
Lord willing, I will be joining this week:
