This tradition is my Christmas gift to several special ladies each year. The 4-course luncheon at McHatties Victorian Times is DIVINE and gives us plenty of time to visit. To give you an idea just how good the food actually is, here's the entree I chose:Yep, fish... and I chose it! To truly understand the magnitude of this selection and my complete culinary surrender, refer to this post (specifically, item #4).
I was not disappointed.
Rarely do we make time to simply hang out. We check in periodically by phone or see each other occasionally with kids underfoot, but really - that's not enough. I'm thankful for our tea dates which give us the time to take our time!
We shared many laughs and I returned home with several colorful family stories to share with the hubby... and an Apricot White Chocolate Chunk scone... with a side of Devonshire cream. (It's the gift that keeps on giving :-)
