The kids both had school dinners at lunchtime. It was roast chicken today, so they both said that they only wanted a sandwich for tea.
I decided to surprise them with an afternoon tea for two.
Wraps, yoghurts, a scone with butter and homemade jam, and a Crafty Cooks oat biscuit.
No more than I would make for them if they were having packed lunch, but much more than they would eat .
It must have been so novel for it to be served in this way, because they both sat together, chatting away, eating it all.
They ate better than I have seen in a long time; now whether that was because they were hungry or because it was more fun than normal I guess I shall never know, but I think afternoon tea might put in another showing fairly soon.
Next time though I shall make sure I have more savoury bites ready.
Some pizza rolls maybe, or cheese and onion pasties.
What would you make for an impromptu afternoon tea for your children?
