Each March my sister and I get together to celebrate our March birthdays.
Sometimes it is for lunch and sometimes for tea.
This year we decided to share a special St. Patrick's Day tea
at the Historic Deepwood Estate in Salem, Oregon.
The house is a beautiful 1894 Queen Anne Victorian home, one of the first
built in the area with electricity and indoor plumbing.
It was fun to walk through the rooms and imagine what it was like during that time.
As lovely Celtic instrumental music was played we enjoyed sharing tea.
The menu was delightful:
Irish Soda Bread with Chutney and Dubliner Cheese
Guinness Beef Stew
Salmon and Potato Cakes with Lemon Sauce
Corn Beef and Cabbage Strudel
Sticky Toffee Cake
Deepwood Tea with Rose Petals
A very pleasant afternoon tea.
