Lets have a tea party ... ;):)

I have been realising this ... there are loads and loads of blog readers that I have no clue about. Everynow and then a post of mine touches them in a special way and I get to hear from them ... and how do I react to all that ... "OH! my Good Lord! ... and all this while I had no clue you were reading my blog".
And what do I get to hear  from those amazing readers of mine ... well! the most beautiful and touching e-mails and comments ...
So to all of you out there ... who for all this time have been silently reading and loving my blog... this is for you.I am having a tea party and I am inviting all of you. Join me here, on this blog ... come share your self with all the other ... I really would love to hear who you are and what you feel about my blog. And while you are here hope you'll enjoy some inspiration for a tea party. I am hoping there'll be a lot more than just Rajee Sood ... talk... ;)

Cause guess who else I am inviting ... all my blogging friends :):)

... honestly, do join me and here's what I think we can do ... I 'll style the party and all the talented food blogggers ... join me with your most yumcious recipes you can dish out and bring them over to the party ... the more the links the more the recipes and more the fun ... no limit to how many recipes you link...
All style bloggers  ... troop in with all your ideas and inspirations for tea parties ... indoors or out ...
You think you got tea party conversation... well! what's a party with out some good chitter chatter. Link in honey ...
I am really excited inviting you all ... so what do you all think ... are you game ... and think this could be good fun ... do leave me your comments and suggestions ... we still got some days to go ... and I would love to know what you think ... :):)
How about the whole of first week of April ... an online tea party ... with me and all my blogger friends and readers ... would you be there ... :))

Hi Rajee, Oooh, I love your ideas.. well done, your table looks amazing. Make mine a cuppa chai masala please. Here's my fav. shortbread recipe.. 1/2 lb soft butter - 1/2 cup icing sugar - 1/2 cup cornflour - 1 1/2 cups flour - 1/2 tea salt Method - Beat butter, and icing sugar till creamy. Add cornflour and beat, and flour and salt. Pat into flan pie plate and prick with fork. Bake 140 for 1 hour. Very slow oven. When softly browned and time up, take out of oven and slice into cubes while warm. Sprinkle with castor sugar and enjoy with your tea. Thanks for your postings.. Jean Wethmar Brisbane Au

sweet empanadas in spanish. called karanji in marathi. gujia in bengali.

my version.

the filling is made of jaggery, khopra, and minced nuts . cut small circles of 4 inches in diameter from a frozen pastry sheet. place the filling and fold into a semicircle. Brush with an eggwash and bake.

you can go wild on your filling - dates, cream cheese, minced nuts or raisins, almonds and nuts. you can go in any direction on the filling and you will not go wrong.

Have a nice tea party. no coffee ?
i make mine with sambouka.

miss me.
