THANKFUL FOR FRIENDS for "Friends Sharing Tea"

While some have already decorated for
 Christmas this is the last week to
enjoy the fall decor at our house:

We are excited about bringing the smell
of roasting turkey and pumpkin pie
into the kitchen here this week as
our son and daughter in-law and
two "grands" come for Thanksgiving.

On Sunday I had a tea downstairs
 for some new friends from the church
 we attend.  It was a "Thankful For
 Friends" tea and it was a beautiful
 day to just relax and enjoy the
 calm before the busy week.

That little sign read "Gluten Free"!

So today we are enjoying a
 few leftover
treats from the tea:

Here is the recipe for the
and here is the recipe for
the Chocolate Peppermint Brownies
 I made the brownies in another
 batch using gluten free flour for 
some of the ladies so you can just 
substitute the flour in the recipe.

Wishing you a very Happy 
Thanksgiving here in America! 
Since this week is so VERY busy,
 I will go ahead and post early to
 give more time before our busy 
Thursday for those who participate 
in this tea time blog linking party !
  And as you see I did change my
 header at the top to start moving
toward the new season.

Good morning, Bernideen! Your friends are so lucky to be treated to a tea by YOU! All those smiling faces say how happy they are. Your tea for one, with your leftover treats is so pretty.
