Happy 4th of July!

Sweet Land of Liber-tea!

I saw this picture on the internet when I was searching for something "tea" and patriotic today.  I just had to put it on the blog since it's my new  Paul Revere teacup with the teapot from Liberty Blue!  Now I want that teapot.
Yesterday I was cooking and cleaning up after cooking until about midnight--sorry I missed yesterday's post!  I was going to put up the bars below, but lost track of time.  I'm going to a little cookout at my parents' house and made some mayo-free potato salad and two different desserts.  One of those desserts I used for a 4th of July tea party a couple of years ago, actually my first tea party in my house. 

(2012 July 4th Tea)
On the plate at the other end of the table are mini-apple pies and the red, white, and blue blondies shown below:

This is a TeaTime Magazine recipe from an issue a few years ago and here on the magazine's website.  I couldn't find dried strawberries this time, so I used dried cherries for the "red" which worked fine.  The blondies also have blueberries, white chocolate chips, and walnuts. 

I hope you have a great day!
