Some really good food here and I want some smoked salmon too :-)

Here's raising a glass to you as we drink about the same type things. Coffee in the morning and sometimes a decaf in the afternoon. Orange juice with a breakfast meal and I'm pretty much guzzling water all day.

We had a nice Beaujolais last night with pasta and sauce.

Wow nice meals and drinks Have a great day.

Divers and Sundry said...

Yes, please ;) I'll sit at your table any time :) Happy T Day!

I've never had smoked salmon at home. I'll hafta look into that possibility.

So you're a grazer, Mae. Your little meals look lovely and very tasty.

I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum: a light breakfast of buttered muffin with jam; then a generous meal at 6:00 p.m. I believe our bodies tell us what they need.

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Nice drinks, food and I noticed some of your dishes match some of mine. Is that a bowl-dish in a couple of those photos? Have a great T day. Hugs-Erika

Hi Mae, More fine photos here. If there is any issue with your blog, it's that after looking it over I immediately head to the kitchen for something to eat. :-) And that's not really a serious issue, is it? :-) Thank you for sharing and have a fine week ahead. John

I eat one meal a day, so you eat a LOT. It all looks so good, too. You certainly have a plethora of drinks to share along with all that amazing food you and your husband fix. Thanks for sharing these drinks with us for T this almost Tuesday, dear Mae.

I see you drink your coffee black like I do. And also your tea? I can't drink ceylon tea without milk.

Iris Flavia said...

You sure caught me with the cauliflower cheese!!!
Wine here for cooking. Germans, huh. Drink beer ;-)

Mae you've shown some lovely photos of your food, I love smoked salmon and potatoe salad. We only eat breakfast and dinner, a cup of tea at lunchtime in winter, melon in summer.
Happy T Day

You're eating my kind of food - pity I can no longer drink wine! Happy T Day, Chrisx

Kate Yetter said...

Delicious looking meals! Yummy food certainly makes not being able to eat out less disappointing.
Happy Tea Day,

Lisca said...

If you would invite me for a meal, I would be over in a flash as you eat the sort of thing I love. I treat myself to smoked salmon too sometimes. A tasty pasta dish with some red wine. Can't be bad.
Happy T-Day,

Yum ... what a lovely series of drink & food pairings. I am drooling!!!!

I have to ask: what form of apricots went into your pancakes?


Mae Travels said...

Q - What form of apricots were in the pancakes?
A - In the batter I used cut-up dried apricots. The jam on top was Bonne Maman Intense Apricot Spread, though any good apricot jam would do.
