Earlier this week I stopped by my friend Devi’s home for a holiday tea to cheer her up and to get her mind off the pain she is still in from her knee-replacement surgery a few weeks ago. My Dad and our mutual friend Rose joined me on this afternoon. Rose and I were determined to get Devi into the holiday spirit and distract her from her discomfort even if it was just for a couple of hours. From the looks of it we accomplished our objective, as Devi seemed to be enjoying herself on this afternoon 😊😀.
As is typical of Devi she couldn’t help but lay out a delectable spread, despite recovering from her surgery. With an array of scrumptious pastries and appetizers to nosh on, it turned out to be a very festive gathering to celebrate the holidays and our very special friendship.
On the Menu:
Savory Indian chickpea dumplings
Almond orange torte
Rose and I skipped lunch so we could enjoy this delectable spread 😋
It is the holidays after all, and the three of us have been exchanging presents for more years than I can count, and this year was just as special.
It is truly heart warming to spend an afternoon with close friends, tea, and conversation ☕️😊😍
