Afternoon tea at The Berry Tea Shop

Hello lovelies! On a recent jaunt to the South Coast with Mr Lovely we came across the utterly delightful Berry Tea Shop. Tucked away from the busy main street of Berry, the tea shop proved a relaxing spot for tea and scones following an afternoon of driving.

The store opened almost three years ago and is owned by husband and wife team, Cliff and Paulina Collier. The couple have created a really charming space, serving not only a huge array of teas from around the world but also a delicious assortment of cakes, scones and other baked goodies.

But what we really loved about The Berry Teashop was the vast collection of teapots, cups and saucers and beautiful books that were  for sale. Our favourites were the heart-shaped cup and saucer sets – one in every colour please!

A whole lotta something outta nothing…

Good afternoon lovelies! How are you all this afternoon?

Weekend breakfasts at the lovely co. call for something a tad more snazzy than our usual porridge or peanut butter on toast. Last Saturday was no different, except when we opened the fridge and the pantry they were barer than Old Mother Hubbarb’s kitchen cabinets. We immediately made a mental note to go grocery shopping later that day and decided that in the meantime we would have to see what we could rustle up with the few fresh ingredients we had.

Have you ever tried this lovelies? Getting creative with what you’ve got instead of trekking up to Woolies to restock? We do it every now and then and it’s a great lesson in minimising food wastage.

Anywho, here’s what we had: two small zucchinis (that looked a little past their prime, but still ok for cooking), two eggs, one rasher of bacon, half a tub of sour cream…plus the usual pantry staples like flour, sugar etc. Hmmm…what to make? We decided on Zucchini Fritters with sour cream and sweet chilli and topped with crispy bacon strips.

Fritters are a failsafe weekend breakfast option. Just combine two eggs, 2/3 cup of plain flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and a dash of milk, along with your star ingredient (in this case grated zucchini, but corn is delicious as well), salt and pepper and whatever herbs and spices you desire. Pour 1/4 cup portions into a hot, oiled pan and cook each side until golden brown.

Here’s a pic of our fritters.
