Share Your Cup #228 - This Week
I guess I did inherit a bit of my skill from my Mom who has been sewing for 70 years. Check back later to see the actual projects.
There was some hand stitching as well.
I`ve met with friends this week for lunch and movies. Vietnamese was for lunch on Tuesday.
The Fantastic Beasts on Wednesday. It was very good movie. We spent a couple hours following the movie over a bit of something to eat with a large cup of tea!!
I spread it over wax paper on a cookie pan. Into the fridge to harden.
The chocolate was melted in small glass containers in a double boiler. The containers provided a depth of chocolate I needed to get some onto half of my dippers.
The dried apricots were dipped then placed on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
Next was the small pretzels which provide a bit of salt to contrast with the sweet of the milk chocolate.
With all the work under my belt it was time to take a break with a great cup of hot chocolate. I serve it in my Steeped Tea Tea Lover's Teacup which is a blown glass double walled cup. I added a piece of candy cane for stirring. A Christmas orange with a couple of snacks I slaved over earlier.
