Tea Time!

My grandmother's birthday was in July and 
so we celebrated by having a high tea.


 I made this refreshing No Bake Raspberry Lemonade mousse with vanilla crumbs instead of graham crackers. A bit more tart than I had anticipated, so we sugared the strawberry garnish. 



 All these dainty treats were made for only 3 people - myself, Mimsie, and Gram. We chatted, giggled, and reminisced until we had eaten ourselves into a saccharin stupor!

All in all, a wonderful day to honor my wonderful Gramikins.
