The Queen in Ireland!

Yes, it actually happened. After ninety years of bad taste and ignoring the issue, the heads of state of two neighboring countries in Europe, countries with extraordinary close links and ties, met together. Mary, the Irish President and Elizabeth, the British Queen....and it was the Queen who was wearing green!

Both looked fabulous as they wandered around Dublin, and I'm sure the chat was great. They visited the sights, the Queen was even tempted to try a pint of Guinness, but to no avail.

Then to top it all off, the Queen was the honored guest at a state banquet in Dublin castle, once the hated seat of British rule in Ireland. Amongst rich symbolism they dined and spoke their way into history.

I would just loved to know what was on the menu! (oh, and check out the beautiful diamond brooch the Queen is wearing, just amazing)

To me, this visit is actually very emotional. A watershed moment in Irish history and to celebrate I'm going to post my favorite food fit for 'tea with the queen'...White Chocolate and Raspberry Buttermilk Scones. They're decadent, delicious and if the Queen came to my house, it's defiantly what I would serve

So, check back this weekend for a recipe fit for a Queen!
