Foods from Around the World

Last fall, our co-op semester ended with a medieval feast. Today we are attending the last meeting for our spring semester. The theme is "Foods of the World"!

Our contribution ~ tea time treats from England. :-)

scones with lemon curd


Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 large cucumbers, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 loaf thinly sliced wheat bread (Pepperidge Farms is great)

Combine the first eight ingredients; beat until blended. Stir in the cucumbers, red pepper, onion, olives and parsley. Cover and refrigerate. Remove crusts from bread; cut each slice into two triangles. Spread with cream cheese mixture. Enjoy!
