|Christina and I making the tea.|
First, we had our 6th annual Cat Rescue Tea in San Jose, and it was another success! We served about 120 people over 2 days, and raised close to $5,000 for 13th Street Cats!
I made 8 batches of Meyer lemon curd, and coordinated a bunch of other things, including jam donations, tea donations (from Satori Tea Bar and Thompson Tea Company), and put together 2 afternoon tea baskets for the silent auction, as well as collected a bunch of other tea things for the raffle for both days. I also helped make tea sandwiches, served the lemon curd, jam, and butter, and with my friend Christina, made all the tea that was served at the event.

Now, it's time to start the Easter baking, after having spent a few hours on my taxes ... There will be Italian cuccidate, biscotti, my great-aunt's Cocoa-Anise cookies, and Italian Easter Bread, which I made for the first time last Easter, and my grandmother approved of it. I'll collapse later ...
