I'm using some more red transferware tonight, both the teacup and dessert plate are the pattern Romantic England, by J.&G. Meakin. Did you see all the castles in Great Britain during the Olympics? They made me want to go visit even more than I did before!
According to the bottom of the saucer the teacup features Anne Hathaway's cottage. I didn't know who Anne Hathaway was, so I looked it up and she was William Shakespeare's wife and this was her childhood home. It is now a museum.
For dessert I made some Chocolate Revel Bars. These are my favorite brownie, so I made them for the kids today when they got home from school. Unfortunately I can't eat them now, since I had to go off gluten, but LA happily ate it for me. I have included the recipe below.
Chocolate Revel Bars
1 c. butter
2 c. light brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
3 c. quick oats
Cream together butter and brown sugar. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients and oatmeal. Set aside.
1/2 package (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. salt
2 T. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
Place first four ingredients in microwave safe bowl and microwave on 50-70 power until chocolate chips are melted. Stir occasionally. Or melt over double boiler. Stir in vanilla.
Press 3/4 of oatmeal mixture in bottom of a greased 15x10x1 inch jelly roll pan. Cover with chocolate mixture. Press small amounts of remaining dough into flat pieces and lay on top of chocolate. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
I'm joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday again today.
