Well, I'm pretty much recovered from our tea party fundraiser from last weekend. I got away with not taking home too many leftovers, so the tea sandwiches are finished and I only have a little bit of sour cream, some chopped onions and some sandwich bread to use up. Mother's Day is coming up, and I always cook for my mom on Mother's Day, so it shouldn't be too hard to use up the tea food.
In any case, we served 33 people on Saturday and 39 on Sunday, had no major catastrophes (although we came close when the tea urns caused the kitchen electrical circuit to break!) and received lots of great comments from the guests. We also raised about $4,500 for the 13th Street Cats! We'll see how many veterinary bills that will pay for; always on the lookout for needy cats, they took in another one on Sunday, just as the tea was ending! This cat has kind owners who can't pay for its medical care, so 13th Street Cats is going to take the cat to the vet and pay for its exam and medication.
