As I mentioned in my Sunday Salon post, I attended a "high tea" with "Shakespeare snippets" on Sunday afternoon. A fellow teacher invited me to go with her to this annual event sponsored by the Daughters of the British Empire (DBE). I must say, it was a delightful way to spend the afternoon.
Warwick Egg and Cheese Tarts.
The second course focused on the quintessential tea cake selections, such as: devon cream scones with Strawberry preserves, Londonderry Lemon Curd Tarts (my favorite), and Scottish Shortbread.
The tea lasted approximately one hour and then there was a 15 minute presentation of a scene from Shakespeare's As You Like It performed by teen members of the Team Shakespeare troupe of Kansas City. They did an amazing job, and I think I was particularly interested since I am currently trying to "direct" my 8th graders in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I wish there was time for more theater, but alas the afternoon concluded around 3:30.
