Well, the Royal Wedding of William to Kate Middleton is a done deal, and the post-nuptial festivities continue. We should all celebrate with some English tea and crumpets while taking in the sights of millions of Englishmen and people around the world celebrating this ceremony and catching a glimpse at the future King of England. Television stations estimate that 2 billion, that’s with a “B”, watched the ceremony. It was delightful to see so many horses and carriages and all the ceremony. And all the old great cars–Bentley’s, Astin Martin, and Rolls-Royces. The Queen looked spectacular and the bride, well, stunning. And those little bridemaids and pages….so cute in all their finery. And then there were all those hats. Don’t know what the history of the hats are about, but every type and color was in evidence. It was great to see Westminster Abbey bedecked with a forest of trees, which news outlets relay will be replanted into the parks of London…
I don’t know about you, but a cup of tea and some English toffe and spice cookies made with Watkins vanilla and cinnamon definitely seems in order. I’m sure JR Watkins would agree. Check out the Cinnamon and Spice cookies recipe in the latest Watkins catalog or on our Watkins website at www.watkinsonline.com/martinez1.
And did you know the name Watkins is an old English and Welsh surname derived from Watkin, a form of Walter. Interesting fact of the day.
