Yum and Finally Rhayn Drinking Tea
What could be better than a traditional Cornish pasty? We grew up eating these tasty hand pies (not to be confused with Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pies.) I met my mom for lunch today and had one of these, the traditional "Oggy" filled with steak, onions, potatoes and rutabaga. I have always loved the mixture of beef, onion and potato. Is that a German thing? Is it Swiss? All I can be certain of is, that is my favorite mix of flavors, and so comforting.
Here is a picture of Rhayn drinking tea at her party, in dainty white gloves. I had been trying, unsuccessfully to post this picture . I found out that blogger did not like the format I saved it in. (I had cropped it in Macromedia Fireworks it is a great program, once you get used to it.) I had to recrop it in paint, before Blogger would let me post it! Anyway, how cute is she? The Fireworks copy was much nicer, as I didn't have to first shrink the picture.
I have had a few parents come up and tell me that their daughters had a great time. One even said her daughter told her "You totally missed out, Mom!" (Her dad brought her.) That makes me feel relief. I was so worried about it. Although my friend JD told me that I appeared calm and serene through the ordeal. I took Rescue Remedy before hand, I believe that helped a lot.
