The Rest-a-While tea rooms, which has been such a success at the last two fayres poped up again on Saturday. See nothing new, all this "pop-up" restaurants malarkey, anyone invoved with running fayres or fetes have pop up tea rooms on a regular basis, summer and winter,and have been doing so for years.
Following a donation of a picnic hamper (empty) last year, Netty and I decided we would fill with home-made and luxury goods. Many chutneys had been produced during the year and have been put in the hamper. Netty raided IKEA and brought table "Furnishing" and made a lovely tablecloth.I was charged with making home made lemonade and filling a cookie jar with assorted cookies.
Here is a really easy recipe for the lemonade: 6 large lemons and 5oz granulated sugar. Scrub the lemons, then thinly pare the rind off of 3 of the lemons with a potato peeler and put in a large bowl. Add the squeezed juice from all the lemons and the sugar. Next pour over two and a half pints of boiling water, stir well, cover and leave overnight in a cool place. Next day, stir again and taste and add a little more sugar if necessary. Pour into bottles and chill throughly.Serve either straight or diluted with sparling mineral water and lots of ice.
Well the Raffle went really well and a cool profit of £149 was made. (thanks Penny and Vicky for selling the tickets)
