2009 Denver - Tea with Danica

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.21.2009

After a day at Audra's house, Danica and I were ready to relax! So I treated her to high tea at the Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver!

OMG the food was absolutely yummy! Isn't this a cute server, too?

Here are the desserts, which I was tempted to eat first, but we didn't. The pale white/beige things at 9 and 3 o'clock were coconut macaroons, but they were more like pastry puffs filled with macaroon paste. OMG they were awesome! The pink petit four squares at 10 and 4 o'clock were some fruity passion fruit? sponge cake and cream things. The round scoops on cookies at noon and 6 o'clock were some mousse fruity things with a fig on top, and the triangle things at 2 and 7 o'clock were mini apple pie slices (aren't they cute???) Maybe Danica can chime in if she remembers what the other stuff was exactly.

Our sandwiches were to die for! Besides the traditional cucumber sandwiches, we had shrimp salad (the brown bread triangles with a little caper in cream on the side) and a turkey salad (the rectangles with a chive in cream on the side).

And the scones! They were tasty, although we'd had scones at Wystone Tea a day or two earlier that I thought were better. Who am I kidding--slather that thing with clotted cream, and Camy is a happy girl!

Me relaxing

Me and Danica. Isn't the decor totally cool? Kind of retro Victorian.

  1. This is why I love you so much. You not only tell us about what you ate, you SHOW us. And I'm on a food reduction phase (would that be DIE-T?) so I guess I can't eat for a week now. I tasted it with my eyes....

    Thanks!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
