~Mayonnaise Rolls~Orange Spice Tea~Few Pretty Pictures~

Good Morning! Hope everyone is enjoying your Summer, even if it is smouldering hot. lol:) I have been so busy lately, that I just haven't had time to post. When I do have computer time I spend it visiting so many of you. I want to tell you all how much I enjoy your blogs. I have had a couple of people want the recipe to the rolls I fixed in another post. Here it is...Mayonnaise Rolls....2cups self rising flour....2Tbsp. mayonnaise, I use about 3 Tbsp instead of 2....1cup of milk... Mix and spoon into greased muffin pans and bake at 400 until golden brown....Makes 12 rolls~told you all it was easy! Next......Tea Time....This is one of my favorite teas, if you've never tried it, you need to, it is wonderful. Hot or cold! I like it cold in the Summer and hot in the Winter.




Here is a few pretty pictures....maybe to give you a little inspiration for these dog days of Summer....when you don't want to do a thing....I have the hardest time finding energy to do anything when it is so hot.This little pretty ceramic fruit basket was given to me about 27 years ago, by my Aunt Alice, she told me to put it into my hope chest. Did any of you have a hope chest? I did, it was a big deal in my family when you turned about 11 years old you was given stuff from every Aunt, Great Aunt, and Grandmother to put in your hope chest. Oh, the memories!!!

I can't wait to try them, girl! BTW, I had a Hope Chest (it still sits at the foot of our bed) but I didn't have the cool tradition that you did! LOVE it.
